    Customs Zonal Coordinator Zone A HQ, Assistant Comptroller General (ACG) Adeyanju Modupeola Aremu has tasked officers of the Nigerian Customs Service on transparency and professionalism.

    ACG Aremu tasked the officers during a working visit to Ikorodu Customs Warehouse for an on-the-spot assessment of the general conditions of the warehouse.

    A statement signed by CSC Uche Ejesieme revealed that the visit was part of the oversight function of the zonal coordinator, zone ‘A’ to the facilities under her supervision.

    The statement added that the ACG had also embarked on the visit to clear unverified reports being circulated that the facility is filled up.

    The ACG was received by officer in charge, A.C. William Akpabio, who led other officers and stakeholders on the working tour.

    Feeling quite elated at the conduct of the officer/men, the ACG charged them to ensure transparency and professionalism in discharge of their duties, to enable the service accomplish its mission and vision.

    “This is coming on the heels of some insinuations in the media space which erroneously indicated that the facility is filled to the brim, and therefore can no longer be readily available for deposition of overtime/seized goods.

    “In the course of the visit, the ACG took time to inspect all the goods domiciled in the facility, had engagement with the critical stakeholders, including the security and regulatory agencies on ways to ensure sanity and security of the facility.

    “It also provided an opportunity for a true assessment of the space in the facility contrary to the opinion advertised in the media, which suggests that the facility is overcrowded/ congested.

    “The facility can comfortably accommodate about 9000 containers and other general goods.” it read.
