On reduction of checkpoints by Ogun customs

The Ogun State Area Command of the Nigerian Customs Service said it has reduced the numbers of checkpoints manned by personnel of the service as part of efforts geared towards achieving one of the core functions of the service and to passionately key into the federal government executive order on ease of doing business.

The officers and men earlier manning the removed checkpoints have been redeployed to the hinterlands in order to reinforce the might of other officers and the new comptroller has visited and held critical meeting with stakeholders including colleagues in Benin Republic, traditional rulers and other sister security agencies towards promoting synergy geared at effective and efficient service delivery.

This seems a step in the right direction as the command recently  intercepted 3, 041 bags of bags of foreign rice suspected to have been smuggled, and 99 packs of Indian hemp within two weeks.

Within this period, 295 kegs of smuggled vegetable oil, 221 kegs of Premium Motor Spirit (petrol), 24 smuggled secondhand vehicles and 28 bags of sugar were also seized in addition to three bales of secondhand clothes were also intercepted.

The Ogun command of customs is obviously focused and others should emulate them.
