Barely three months after it redeployed 20 of its Comptrollers, the Nigeria Customs Service (NCS) has yet again announced a reshuffling of Customs Area Controllers (CACs) in major commands of Service’s Zone ‘A’.
In the lastest round of posting, Comptroller Charles Edike moved to Apapa Area 1 Command from Murtala Muhammed International Airport Command, while former CAC, Apapa Area 1 Command, Comptroller Muhammed umar moved to Edike’s former command.
Comptroller Zakari Jubril swapped his position with Comptroller Tajudeen Olanrewaju as CAC, Port and Terminal Multi-services Limited (PTML) Area Command.
Jubril is now CAC, Tin-Can Island Port Command, which Olanrewaju has now vacated to take charge at PTML.
Meanwhile, both CACs of PTML and Tin-Can Island Port commands formally assumed their new postings yesterday.
Speaking at a brief handover ceremony held at PTML Command, Jubril expressed appreciation for the support and cooperation of the personnel , even as he charged them to extend same to his successor.
In his words: “Thank you very much for your support but please cooperate with him, let him succeed.” Responding, Olanrewaju said that he sees the transfer as a routine exercise of the Service, soliciting for the support of the personnel.
He noted that the success or failure of the command depend largely on the personnel.
“Every Customs Area Controller is just a figure head, he cannot do it alone. The success or failure of the CAC reflects success or failure of the command, so we should see this responsibility as a joint success or failure,” he said.
