More Encomiums for Customs CG, as Compt Nnadi decorates 110 officers at TinCan Command

The speech made by the Customs Area Controller (CAC) of TinCan Island Port Command, Compt Dera Nnadi mni, was brief but full of admonition, optimism and acknowledgement of a new dawn in Nigeria Customs Service.

While Nnadi urged promoted officers to wear their thinking caps in bringing new ideas to enhance greater efficiency in service delivery, he applauded CGC Bashir Adewale Adeniyi MFR, for his outstanding leadership acumen in promoting 67 Comptrollers at once, describing it as unprecedented in the history of Customs.

Compt Nnadi, fondly called Action CAC by many, described CGC Adeniyi as being magnanimous in his leadership style in promoting officers who were even on the waiting list for some time.

The decoration exercise at TinCan, which was a memorable occasion, witnessed a large turnout of officers, as well as maritime stakeholders who described Compt Nnadi as dynamic, experienced and highly skilled in Customs operations.

In fact, the excitement during the decoration exercise took a new dimension when it was revealed that TinCan Command has the highest number of promoted officers.

More so, the Action CAC told officers to redouble their efforts in ensuring that the Command gives its best in revenue collection and trade facilitation, in order to meet its allotted target.

Compt Nnadi also emphasised the importance of putting their working relationship with stakeholders on the front burner; strengthening it at all times to enhance greater productivity.

His exact words : “This year is going to be labelled the year of stakeholders. It is going to be on the shoulders of newly promoted officers.

“So, you have to put on your thinking caps and come up with new ideas to justify the confidence reposed in you by the Service management”.

Accordingly, officers decorated at the Command included 9 Deputy Comptrollers, promoted to the rank of Comptrollers, 16 Assistant Comptrollers promoted to Deputy Comptrollers and 21 Chief Superintendent of Customs promoted to Assistant Comptrollers, among others.

Compt Nnadi enthused ; “You are not only fortunate, you are also privileged, having been found academically competent and sound in Customs procedures”.

He advised :  “Those who were not promoted this time should do more. To the promoted officers, note that your rank confers service in you and not power. Whichever office you will be assigned to work must be seen as service and not as power.

“We have to respect our stakeholders and optimise service delivery at all times. Now, you have to use your new rank in helping the Command to survive in the revenue target to be assigned.

“My obligation is to mentor you and what you owe Customs in return is service delivery and hard work to achieve the desired result.

Responding on behalf of the beneficiaries, Chief Superintendent of Customs, CSC Okadigbo thanked the Service Management for finding them worthy for the promotion, commending the CGC and his team for their transparency in the entire exercise.

He assured the Management of their readiness to give their best in service delivery.

In the same vein, Mr Ojo Peter Akintoye, a member, Association of Nigerian Licensed Customs Agents, ANLCA, congratulated the officers, praying for them to succeed in their statutory responsibilities.

He expressed great pleasure that TinCan recorded the highest number of promoted officers, telling the officers to remain steadfast in their assignment and loyal in serving their fatherland, Nigeria.
