Mass Demotion Coming To Nigeria Customs Soon – Ali

COMPTROLLER General of Nigeria Customs Service (NCS), Col Hammed Ali (retd), yesterday, pledged to review all cases of irregular promotions among officers, admitting that some of the promotions done in the past were irregular.

The comptroller general, who dropped the hint while addressing officers of the Service at their Bompai head­quarters in Kano, decried how some officers were pro­moted above their seniors and others were promoted when they should not have been promoted.

He lamented that the most worrisome aspect is that dou­ble-promoted officers could not be linked to any justifi­able gallantry or accom­plishment for the Service; “rather they were uplifted because they had power­ful relatives at the point of power.”

He declared that under his charge, those who actu­ally did not merit their pro­motions would be demoted, adding that henceforth, pro­motion in the service must be based on merit, as only those who work for it would get promoted.

Ali also said the NCS was yet to meet Federal Govern­ment’s 2015 revenue target of N944 billion, adding that at present, they were able to generate just N744 billion. He charged the officers to redouble their revenue gen­eration efforts with a view to surpassing the yearly target.
