The Customs Area Controller of PTML Command showered praises on officers and men of the Command who according to her, inspite of the challenges of bad road, lack of transportation they meet while coming to work, they never gave up! Most of them have to trek to the office, yet, they are giving their best.
I must commend them! Comptroller Aremu was also full of praises for the management team of the Nigeria Customs Service (NCS) led by the Comptroller General, Colonel Hameed Ali (Rtd), who inspite of challenges put round pegs in round holes in the Service and has brought back Sanity and decorum which have led to the results being posted.
