Comptroller-General of the Nigeria Customs Service Hameed Alli says the era of permanent posting to unit commands and departments is over in the service.
Speaking at the Abuja command of the service, Ali said anyone who had spent up to three years in a unit should expect posting.
“The general view of the public is that customs is the most undisciplined and corrupt service because of the nature of our job that needs to be addressed, he said.
All officers are under close watch because if any mistake is done by any unit command, it will register internationally and that is not good for the image of the service.
You are not in customs to make money and enrich yourself but to work hard because if you are caught you must face the law. None of you should make me use you as an example; if your intention is to be corrupt then you cannot survive this time around.
No more god-fatherism in customs; you will earn promotion, not get promotion and for you to earn it, you must attain the qualification based on performance evaluation.”
Ali said officers’ welfare would be upgraded and urged them to work hard in carrying out their duties to boost the service revenues.
