The new Comptroller General of Customs, Hameed Ali, has purportedly requested for the files of senior officers of the service.
Ali had only last week stated that President Muhammadu Buhari, mandated him to do three things at Customs- to restructure, reform and increase revenue generation.
To achieve all this, it is believed that the new Customs boss will have to flush out corrupt officers from the service.
Punch reports, that Ali has commenced the process of scrutinising files of top officers of the service as well as looking into petitions written against some employees.
Some of the petitions written against the employees has to do with cases of illegal sales of seized goods by officers of the service.
The new comptroller general is also expected to investigate violations of rules and regulations on clearance of goods as well as false declarations and misapplication of tariffs.
