TMP Presents Equipments, As CGC Adeniyi Tasks Officers To Strengthen Collaboration

…Says “We know that computers alone will not work by themselves”

The Comptroller-General of Customs (CGC), Adewale Adeniyi has tasked officers from the rank of Assistant Comptroller and Deputy Comptroller, undergoing the Trade Modernization Project (TMP) special training in preparation for the Service management duties, to be more attentive and acquire the necessary knowledge, to enable them to take up the task ahead of them professionally.

The Customs Arrowhead stated this July 5, 2024, while receiving a customised generator and a bus on behalf of the Service from the Chairman of the TMP, Saleh Ahmadu, at the Project Management Office domiciled at the Nigeria Customs Service Management Quarters in Abuja.

“We know that computers alone will not work by themselves; they will not affect the desired modernisation that we need”, the CGC said, adding:

“It will require human input, and the working environment of these elements is very important as well as those tools. So, we therefore appreciate these efforts you put in place to help us enhance the working environment and also improve the welfare of these officers.”

Adeniyi said, stressing that the Service is aware of TMP’s efforts in providing tools and equipment needed to drive the modernisation program.

He also applauded the Trade Modernization Project for being a worthy and dependable partner in their modernisation drive. He noted that the equipment delivered would be put to good use to bring added value to NCS operations.

Mr Saleh Ahmadu, the Chairman of the Trade Modernization Project (TMP), who handed over the equipment, said the bus was for the effective movement of personnel between the headquarters and the TMP office, while the generator was for constant power supply to the management quarters of the NCS.

 He acknowledged the CG for his continuous support and collaboration.

The National Association of Government Approved Freight Forwarders (NAGAFF) has expressed concern over the lack of understanding among some freight forwarders regarding the role of the Enforcement Unit of the Nigeria Customs Service (NCS) at Tin Can Port.

In a statement released by NAGAFF Headquarters, the association emphasized that the Enforcement Unit serves as gatekeeper and an intervention force, mandated to police the ports and border stations, acting on intelligence information from the Customs Intelligence Unit, Interpol, and informants.

NAGAFF clarified that the Customs Intelligence Unit operates effectively, bursting revenue crimes in customs ports, and encouraged freight forwarders to report any corruption or observations to the appropriate authorities.

The association advised freight forwarders to maintain professional standards, ensuring genuine declaration of imports and exports for customs purposes, as non-disclosure is an offence against customs laws, leading to seizure and prosecution.

NAGAFF assured high response rates from its High Command to protect genuine declarations and compliance, emphasizing that the Comptroller General of Customs and his management team will not tolerate any corrupt acts.

The statement was signed by Dr Clement Iwegbuna, NPS, NAGAFF Hqtrs, and forwarded to the Comptroller General of Customs, DCG Enforcement, and DCG T&T Hqtrs for their information and records.
