By Faridat Salifu

Comptroller-General of Customs Adewale Adeniyi decorated thirteen newly confirmed members of his management team at the Nigeria Customs Service Headquarters in Abuja on Wednesday.

This promotion accompanies an urgent call for increased commitment to the service’s environmental responsibilities.

Chief Superintendent of Customs Abdullahi Maiwada, the service’s spokesman, announced in a press statement that the newly decorated officials include five Deputy Comptroller-Generals (DCGs) and eight Assistant Comptroller-Generals (ACGs).

These appointments, approved by the Nigeria Customs Service Board (NCSB) on May 14, 2024, adhere to the Federal Character Commission’s laws and principles of seniority, recognizing the officers’ dedication and commitment.

During the ceremony, CGC Adeniyi emphasized the need for the newly promoted officers to intensify their efforts, particularly in combating smuggling, enhancing revenue generation, and facilitating trade.

He also highlighted the importance of environmental stewardship as a critical component of their mandate.

“I must emphasize that your new roles require the utmost discipline and a strong commitment to setting a positive example,” said Adeniyi.

“Your actions directly impact our environmental initiatives, especially in tackling illegal trade practices that harm our natural resources.”

The decorated DCGs include Suleiman Bomai, Commander of the Training and Doctrine Command; Bello Jibo, in charge of Enforcement, Inspection & Investigation; Beatrice Nwafor, overseeing Excise, Free Trade Zone & Industrial Incentives; and Caroline Niagwan, responsible for Tariff & Trade.

The new ACGs are Baba Imam, ACG Board; Adekunle Oloyode, ACG Trade & Tariff; Sambo Dangaladima, ACG/Zonal Coordinator Zone ‘B’; Abdulrazaq Abdulazeez, ACG/Zonal Coordinator Zone ‘D’; and Sai’du Yusuf, ACG Human Resource Development.

Others include NP Umoh, ACG Training and Doctrine Command; Charles Obih, ACG/Zonal Coordinator Zone ‘C’; and Ciroma Sulaiman, ACG Strategic Research and Policy.

This leadership elevation marks a pivotal moment for the Nigeria Customs Service, reinforcing its role in safeguarding the environment through stringent customs enforcement and strategic policy development.

As the newly promoted officers assume their enhanced roles, their contributions will be vital in advancing the service’s environmental agenda and ensuring sustainable practices within Nigeria’s trade and customs operations.
