The Nigeria Customs Service on Tuesday embarked on a mass transfer of its senior officers in a move to strengthen its operations and reposition the Service for the tasks ahead. 

A statement by the Service's Deputy Public Relations Officer,  Joseph Attah, said the move is to reposition the Service to meet the challenges of the New Year 2017.

It said the ACGs affected include Charles Edike who was moved from Zone A to the Human Resource Development (HRD), Ahmed Mohammed from HRD to Zone B, Aminu Dangaladima from Zone B to Enforcement, and Francis Dosumu from Enforcement to Zone D.

The other ACGs are Augustine Chidi from Zone D to Excise, Free Trade Zone and Industrial Incentives (Ex, FTZ, & I I), Monday Abueh from Excise, FTZ, & I.I. to Zone A, Umar Sanusi from the Headquarter (HQ) to Zone C, and Abdulkadir Azerema from Zone C to HQ.

The redeployment of Deputy Comptrollers of Customs affected the Service Public Relations Officer, Wale Adeniyi, who is now posted to Apapa Customs Area Command, Lagos.

Col. Ali charged the officers who are reporting in their new Zones and Commands as well as all officers and men of the Service to ensure maximum collection of revenue and strict implementation of government's fiscal policy.

He also reiterated Federal Government's ban on importation of rice and vehicles through the land borders.
