Humility in public office :  Customs Boss identifies with lndigent children

Visits orphanage home in Akure

The Comptroller General of Nigeria Customs Service, CGC Bashir Adewale Adeniyi MFR, has demonstrated what can be described as humility in public office, as he identified with indigent children in the society.

The CGC and his team, on Monday August 14, 2023, extended a hand of fellowship to Dorian Home in Akure, Ondo State, an Orphanage home for charity and social development.

Such a visit to the less privileged portrays CGC Adeniyi as a real humanist.

Also, CGC Adeniyi reinvigorated Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) programmes in Customs, in order to give back to society for supporting the Service in achieving its core mandates.

According to him; “the Service has a responsibility to support communities where its statutory duties are carried out. Dorian Home has the structure, commitment and passion to drive its objectives.

“We’ve seen that this place has capacity for almost a thousand kids, so they need to feed them, clothe them, and provide them medicaments”.

“In any of these areas, periodically we will look at our stores to send items that can assist them to achieve the objectives for which these kind of homes are set up”.

In continuation of his working tour of Zone ‘A’, the Customs Boss visited Ondo/Ekiti Area Command, where he was received by the Area Controller, Compt Beatrice Eboka. He inspected and commissioned the newly renovated residential accommodation for officers and men of the Command.

In his remarks, the CGC charged them to be diligent in their operations and documentation to ensure that products meant for export meet international standards.

“You have a role to ensure that the products shipped out of this place meet international standards”.

“You must not do anything to delay the processes, ensure that they do not stay too long in your hands.  Documentation must be done in good time, so that the products do not get bad before they’re shipped out of the country”, he added.

In the same vein, the CGC visited the palace of His Imperial Majesty, Oba Alade Toyinbo Ogunlade Aladelusi CFR, the Deji and Paramount Ruler of Akure, to pledge his loyalty and commitment to the Service, to continue being a responsible Government Agency.

“Customs will continue to be a responsible government agency, respecting the laws of the land and maintaining a very good relationship where we operate”, he asserted.

The paramount ruler appreciated the  CGC for his visit and congratulated him on his appointment while also offering prayers for a successful tenure.
