Customs redeploy spokesperson from HQ to Kirikiri Terminal

Comptroller Timi Bomodi, the Nigeria Customs Service's spokesperson, has been redeployed from Abuja to head the Kirikiri Lighter Terminal in Lagos.

In an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria in Abuja on Saturday, the spokesperson confirmed his own redeployment.

Other officers, he said, were also redeployed to different commands.

In his new position, Bomodi expressed his determination to work toward improving the service.

He did, however, state that he would continue to serve as the service's spokesperson until his official handover.

"When the posting list is released," Bomodi said, "individual area controllers will announce their arrival."

According to NAN, Bomodi was promoted from Deputy Comptroller to Comptroller.

Following the appointment of three Assistant Comptrollers-General of Customs and the promotion of 1, 490 senior officers and support staff, including Bomodi, there will be a reshuffling of senior officers.

NAN also reports that the NCS Comptroller-General, retired Col. Hameed Ali, approved the appointment and redeployment of some management members on January 19.

He stated that the approval came as a result of the statutory retirement of some members of the service's management team.

He stated that the new management members were appointed and redeployed to improve strategic and effective service delivery.

The NCS is a government agency in charge of collecting customs revenue, facilitating national and international trade, and combating smuggling.

The Ministry of Finance oversees it.
