The Public Relations Officer, Tin-Can Island Customs Command, Mr Chris Osunkwo, has applauded the Comptroller-General of Customs, retired Col. Hameed Ali’s bold initiatives towards reforming the service and increasing revenue.

Osunkwo gave the commendation in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos on Thursday.

“What has been happening is not out of place. Every government has its own style.

“When the new CGC was appointed, he has three-point Agenda.

“He comes to customs to reform, restructure and increase revenue and everything that has been happening since his assumption of duty has been in line with his agenda.

“He released the 20-point policy thrust. So, there is nothing that has been happening that is out of place.

“He sounded the notion that look I have come with a mission and we will have to work to drive his mission.

“I do not think there is anything out of place that has happened. Change, whether adverse or positive is welcome.

“All of us keyed into the change mantra and we are all change agents.

“To our mind, nothing extra ordinary has happened.”

Osunkwo said that the comptroller-general was determined to instill discipline, adding that no military and para-military organisations that could survive without discipline.

He said that a stakeholders’ forum would hold in two weeks’ time to map out strategies for enhancing revenue collection by the command. (NAN)
