“We had cause to get several approvals for the Service including enhancement of the remuneration of the staff, and improvement in terms of cost of collections for the Nigeria Customs Service. We have also been able to complete the process toward the realization of the rollout of the Trade Modernization Project.
“These are all fundamental building blocks that are going to work positively towards enhancing and modernizing the whole of the Nigeria Customs Service in line with the requirements of the World Customs Organization and other protocols that Nigeria is committed to”.
Addressing the future generation of Customs Officers, the NCSB Chairperson emphasised the engagement of young officers, including women in the Service.
The board also approved the implementation of a Competency-Based Accelerated Career Progression Plan (CBACPP).
The plan is a proactive strategy designed to close the generational gap that could lead to leadership vacuum in the higher hierarchies of the NCS if not addressed.
