The Nigeria Customs Service has introduced a new uniform for its officials.
The new uniform, which will be used alongside existing ones, was officially presented to the public by the Acting Deputy Comptroller-General, Tariff and Trade, lsa Talatu and the Service Public Relations Officer, Deputy Comptroller Joseph Attah.
The new uniform has white top over the usual ash coloured trouser with a tie to match.
A statement signed by Attah on Tuesday said the additional uniform is part of the ongoing reforms of the NCS aimed at giving officers additional outlook that befits a Service operating on high integrity standard.
According to the statement, “Officers and men working in offices, airport and especially during hot weather will find it easy and more comfortable to wear on duty.
“For the avoidance of doubt, this is not a change of uniform but an addition to give officers and men variety of official wears.
“The white top which can either be long or short sleeve is part of the ongoing reforms aimed at giving officers additional outlook that befits a Service operating on high integrity standard.
“While giving his nod for the official use of the new uniform, the Comptroller-General of Customs, Hameed Ali expressed the hope that the additional wear will help shore up the Service image as well as provide more comfort for operatives at certain time and in appropriate assignment to increase productivity.”
