Customs confirms Attah substantive spokesman, redeploys 337 Assistant Controllers


The Comptroller General of Customs, Hammed Ali has confirmed Assistant Controller Joseph Attah as the substantive spokesman of the Service.

Ali also approved the redeployment of 337 Assistant Controllers to various area commands in the latest round of posting by the Service.

Deputy Public Relations Officer, Abubakar Dalhatu said in a statement that the redeployment was with immediate effect.

Attah, before his confirmation, worked as the Deputy PRO of the Service and was later appointed as the acting PRO in January following the transfer of the former spokesman, Wale Adeniyi to Apapa command.

Before moving to the Public Relations Unit, Attah had also worked in various units of the Service, including the Intelligence Unit, Tin Can Island Port, land border and Excise.

Dalhatu said that the redeployment was part of the ongoing repositioning of the Service.

He said the Comptroller-General charged the affected officers to support the leadership of their new commands in the renewed efforts to entrench a more transparent culture of service delivery.

Dalhatu quoted the customs boss as saying that “so much is expected from NCS in terms of economic and security well being of the country, we cannot afford to ail the nation,”
