The Zonal Coordinator, Nigeria Customs Service (NCS), Zone ‘A’, Lagos, Assistant Comptroller General Mohammed Bello Jibo on Tuesday led the team of Comptrollers from the Zone to decorate senior officers recently promoted by the Service.
ACG Jibo personally decorated Comptroller Bello Shuaibu, Customs Area Controller of Ogun 1 Command, assisted by his wife.
At a well-attended decoration ceremony held at the Customs Training School, Ikeja , Lagos State, the newly promoted senior officers were Comptrollers, Deputy Comptrollers and Assistant Comptrollers as they were decorated with their new ranks.
ACG Jibo while congratulating them, said the promotion should be seen as a conferment of trust which should motivate them to work harder.
The ACG said the CGC Bashir Adewale Adeniyi is selflessly committed to officers wellbeing and tirelessly working to see the new Nigeria Customs Service Board recently inaugurated sit to approve the promotions.
According him, the promotions which come with additional responsibilities, should propel all the beneficiaries to focus better on realising the goals of the NCS under it’s present management team.
Within a short period of assuming headship of Ogun Command, Shuaibu overhauled the anti-smuggling landscape of the area, blending enforcement with intelligence in making seizures of prohibited items including rice, drugs vehicles, ammunition and others without casualties on the part of his officers and members of the public.
Shuaibu has a history of unrelenting anti smuggling record through Federal Operations Unit Zone A, Federal Operations Unit Zone C, Owerri; Strike Force Team A Lagos and other commands in the country.
