• Controversy trails custom appointments
  • Maritime stakeholders including a veteran journalist, Elder Asu Beks, have criticized the latest appointment of two acting Deputy Comptrollers – General and five Acting Assistant Comptroller – General of customs into management positions of the service by the Comptroller General of Customs, Col. Hamid Alli (Rtd). The group have said the appointees come from only one section of the country, which is the Northern part of Nigeria. It could be recalled that earlier in the week, the Public Relations Officer of the service, Mr Joseph Attah mentioned the names of the newly appointed Deputy Comptroller-General of Customs, as well as Assistant Comptroller – General of customs. Some of the appointment into management positions mentioned by Joseph Attah were, Assistant Comptroller-Generals (ACG) of Customs appointed into management positions are Saidu Galadima in charge of ICT/Modernization; ACG SM Modibbo for Zone ‘B’ HQ; ACG Uba Mohammed for E,I&I; ACG Hamza Gummi to head T&T, and ACG Usman Dakingari in charge of Doctrine and Development. A veteran journalist by the name Elder Asu Beks and other maritime stakeholders, however, did not welcome the appointment as they lamented that all appointees were only from the Northern part of the country. According to Asu Beks, “All the latest appointees of the Customs are from the North. The NCS should be called the “Northern Customs Service” and not the Nigeria Customs Service.” Reacting to the criticism, Joseph Attah, the Nigeria Customs Public Relations Officer said it is not true that all management positions are dominated by a particular section of the country, he also said the commission has always welcomed the idea of representation. He said the management positions in the service is evenly distributed across the country’s various zones.
