Customs commissions 415 new Cadets

The Nigeria Customs Service on Thursday commissioned 415 new cadets  as full Customs Officers after the basic training Course 1.

The Zonal Coordinator Zone A and Assistant Controller General of Customs, Modupe Aremu, who spoke during the Passing Out Parade (POP) ceremony at the Ikeja training school, said the cadets were carefully and thoroughly selected among other applicants for the programme.

Aremu said the selection was through a rigorous and transparent process and in compliance with the Federal Character Principle.

According to her, all cadets represent the 774 Local governments of the 36 states and the FCT, Abuja.

Aremu enjoined the cadets to be highly disciplined and loyal while in service.

Commending the efforts of the Comptroller General of Customs, Hameed Ibrahim Ali for the training, she said this would not have been possible without him.

She said, “The reports we received from the Commandant on the training and the parade we witnessed today, are evident that these soon to be commissioned officers have been put through the mills and have come out refined and ready to contribute their quota to the NCS efforts at preserving the security of our nation, facilitating Trade and generating maximum revenue for the Government.

”The Nigeria Customs Service, as you know is involved in Security Operations, Anti Smuggling Activities, Revenue Generation indiscipline. It is a Paramilitary organisation that has zero-tolerance for indiscipline and unprofessional conduct.

“As a result, any act of indiscipline, disloyalty to the Service, disobedience to constituted authority and insubordination will be decisively dealt with and defaulters shown the way out of the Service.

“Consequently, we implore you to avail yourself with the provisions of the Public Service Rule, the Customs and Excise Management Act CAP 45 LFN 2004 and the NC Scheme of Service.

“The NCS is strictly guided by these books in its engagements and re-engagement of its personnel. We also need to emphasize that there is an established channel of communication with regards to official matters, correspondences and even expression of grievances. You are to be guided by these channels throughout your career.”
