Customs CG proves he doesn’t need a uniform to do his job

Hameed Ali says most Customs officers are not corrupt |

The Nigerian Customs Service said it has generated a total revenue of N1.01 trillion in the 2017.

The agency said it is its highest revenue ever.

Joseph Attah, public relations officer, NCS, disclosed this during a media briefing at the agency’s headquarters in Abuja, on Thursday.

He said despite low volume of imports, the agency still managed to make such revenue.

According to him, Hameed Ali, comptroller-general of the agency had taken keen measures to restructure the service, even losing some officers along the way.

“With dogged implementation of the Presidential mandate to restructure, reform and raise revenue, Nigeria Customs Service has recorded the highest revenue collection ever of N1,012,259,006,779.94 with five more working days to the end of 2017,” he said.

“Despite this difficult situation, NCS strives to deliver, sometimes even at the risk of sustaining serious injuries and even death.

“Sadly, in the process of enforcing the laws, six officers fell in the line of duty this year.”

Silently achieving goals:

The Comptroller-General of Customs, Hameed Ali has proven to naysayers that he doesn’t need to wear any uniform to effectively do his work.

Recall that he had a spat with the Senate over his refusal to adorn the Customs uniform.

However, his agency is currently the only government body that has met its revenue goals.
