The Comptroller-General of Nigeria Customs Service, CGC Bashir Adewale Adeniyi MFR, has shown excellent leadership acumen not only in border security, trade facilitation and supporting government to grow the economy, but in promoting the welfare of officers who work tirelessly to protect the economic ambience nationwide.

CGC Adeniyi, who is a great professional, demonstrated this proactively when he unveiled a housing scheme for officers in Kaduna.

He reiterated his commitment to improve the welfare of Customs personnel across the federation by providing what he described as pocket-friendly houses.

The CGC made this known today, Thursday, March 7, 2024, during the flag-off ceremony of Customs housing scheme, at Gidan Iyali Estate, Millennium City, in Kaduna.

He informed; “This ceremony is not the last episode of what we have planned. There are projects similar to this in Kano, Asaba, Yola, Abuja, Enugu and Uyo ready for flag-off. The national spread aims at providing officers and men of the service opportunity to access and benefit from the laudable initiative that is not just pocket friendly but also at convenient locations.”

He also recalled how the Service had, on December 18, 2023, flagged off the ceremony of a similar project of 5000 Houses in Ibadan.

His words; “The initiative was deemed expedient as some of our personnel had retired from service without a befitting home to commence the new phase of life after retirement. It is hoped that this initiative will go a long way at putting an end to the misery experienced by some officers and men in the past.

“This laudable initiative is part of President Tinubu’s supportive efforts to provide affordable houses to Nigerians. We applaud the unwavering support given to Nigeria Customs Service by Governor Uba Sani of Kaduna State towards the success of this exercise.”

Speaking further, the CGC urged officers who have shown interest in the projects not to relent, adding, “It is heartwarming to inform all officers that the service is going into an interface with Cooperative Mortgage Bank with the service ICT under the salary section to effectively manage the process of payments of the housing scheme.”

On his part, the Portfolio and Assets Manager of Family Homes, George Anih, while addressing the gathering, said his firm is critical about providing shelters for Nigerians at affordable prices.

He expressed commitment to partner with the Nigeria Customs Service, to provide 5000 houses for officers and men of the Service.

Also, Mr. Musa Abubakar, Managing Director of Cooperative Mortgage Bank, assured the Comptroller-General of Customs of his commitment to ensure successful completion of the project.
