The new Comptroller General of the Nigeria Customs Service (NCS), Adewale Adeniyi, has assured Nigerians that the NCS will experience efficiency and innovation-driven growth in the coming years under his watch.

Adeniyi, who spoke after he was decorated by Vice President Kashim Shettima at the state house in Abuja, lauds President Bola Tinubu for appointing a serving officer as the head of the agency.

He assured the president and Nigerians of a more effective and innovation-driven Customs Service.

“In the last 8 years, the Nigeria Customs Service has gone through a period of transition. In some areas, we recorded progress—we made remarkable progress in E-Customs; we made a lot of breakthroughs in capacity building.

“But the Customs Service can still live up to its full potential when we bring in more innovation to drive Customs operations. These are the kinds of things we are looking at in the years ahead.

“We are going to be professional in our approach; there are a number of key stakeholders that we are going to be working with; it is a very onerous task, but we are going to be working alongside other stakeholders and partners that we have identified.

“We intend to come up with innovations that will carry all partners and stakeholders along. We are going to leverage technology and innovation to break new ground in Customs operations,” Adeniyi said.

Speaking at the ceremony, Shettima noted that “Now, every Customs officer can aspire to occupy the pinnacle of his or her profession. I wish you well, on behalf of the President and Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces. Congratulations once again.
