Nigeria Customs creates Area Command Hqtrs in Kwara

An Area Command Headquarters of the Nigeria Customs Service, (NCS), has been established in Kwara.

ROYAL NEWS reports that this follows the approval of the Comptroller General of Customs, Col. Hammed Ali (rtd) for its creation in Ilorin, the Kwara State capital.

It was gathered that the decision was done in continuation of the transformation agenda of the federal government.

Spokesperson of the command, Mrs. Zakari Chadu, in a statement issued on Tuesday noted that the NCS management has unbundled and created additional Commands to enhance administrative convenience, boost revenue generation of the service and effective coverage of the nation’s borders.

“I wish to inform you that Kwara State has been given full autonomy of a command. It was carved out of Niger/Kwara/Kogi Area Command.

“The Command will henceforth be called and addressed as Nigeria Customs Service, Kwara Area Command, Headquarters, Ilorin, Kwara State.

“Comptroller HB Ahmed fsi has been posted as the pioneer Customs Area Controller and he has since assumed duty”, the statement reads.
