Daily Trust - - FRONT PAGE -

Five Deputy Comp­trol­ler Gen­eral (DCGs) yes­ter­day pro­ceeded for retirement as their of­fices be­come va­cant.

The sixth of­fi­cer had ear­lier pro­ceeded on retirement late Au­gust shortly be­fore the new Comp­trol­ler Gen­eral of Cus­toms (CGC), Col. Hameed Ali (Rtd) took over in Septem­ber.

The six Deputy Comp­trol­ler Gen­er­als (DCGs) in­clude Mr John Atte (Fi­nance Ad­min­is­tra­tion and Tech­ni­cal Ser­vice, FATS). Mr Atte served as act­ing CGC for two weeks be­fore hand­ing over to Col. Ali.

Cus­toms Adewuyi Ak­i­nade was in charge of Tar­iff and Trade, while Mr Nwosu Chuk­wuma headed Strate­gic Re­search and Pol­icy.

Oth­ers are Mr Musa Tahir, En­force­ment, In­ves­ti­ga­tion and In­spec­tion, Mr Aliu Gabriel for Ex­cise, Free Trade Zone and Industry In­cen­tives, and Ibrahim Mera who headed Hu­man Re­source De­vel­op­ment.

Daily Trust had re­ported ex­clu­sively that Mera's name was re­moved from its web­site some days af­ter former CGC Ab­dul­lahi Dikko-Inde left of­fice mid Au­gust.

An of­fi­cial at the Cus­toms pub­lic re­la­tions of­fice had said Mera went on retirement not­ing that other top of­fi­cers may fol­low suit shortly.

There was no of­fi­cial state­ment on the retirement by the DGCs as at the time of fil­ing this re­port, but Daily Trust has sighted a copy of the let­ter writ­ten by the con­cerned of­fi­cers.
