The Comptroller-General of the Nigeria Customs Service (NCS), Bashir Adeniyi, has forged a collaboration with the Abdulsamad Rabiu Initiative Africa (ASR Africa) to facilitate humanitarian intervention projects across Africa. This initiative was unveiled during a meeting between CGC Adeniyi and the ASR Africa team at the Nigeria Customs Service Headquarters in Abuja on Monday, April 29, 2024.
