By Silas Onuoha:
Apparently, the newly deployed Customs Area Controller (CAC), Bauchi/Gombe Area Command of Nigeria Customs Service, Comptroller Bello Mohammed Jibo, is bringing intelligence and fresh impetus to bear in his new area of assignment.
He has demonstrated this by promptly embarking on a working tour of the out stations in Bauchi/Gombe Command.
Daily Business Update gathered that the working tour is to enable Comptroller Jibo familiarise himself with his new Areas of Responsibility (AOR). That way, he will map out his operational strategies to achieve positive results.
For instance, on March 24, 2020, the CAC and his men visited specific out stations as part of this exercise.
Addressing officers during the familiarization exercise, he said, “We must show professionalism in all aspects of our operations. This Command will not condone any form of misconduct”.
Speaking further, the CAC advised, “All officers and men of our Command should maintain high level of self awareness and preservation, in view of the concerns towards covid-19 pandemic ravaging the entire globe now. Let us take appropriate precautionary measures in carrying out our duties”.
During the exercise, Comptroller Jibo visited the newly built 30-Man Rank and File quarters, meant for housing and convenience of officers serving in that area.
The CAC implored officers there to use all the facilities judiciously and maintain them excellently for the benefit of their successors.
That was not all. The hardworking and result oriented CAC and his entourage proceeded on a courtesy visit to the Deputy State Governor, former DCG (Dr) Manessa Daniel Jatau.
While in a meeting with the Deputy Governor, Comptroller Jibo expressed the Command’s appreciation for the cordial relationship existing with the state government and promised to ensure greater working synergy.
Speaking, the Deputy Governor, who sees Customs as his constituency, promised to solidify the existing cordial relationship.
He also affirmed that his doors will always be opened to the Command on all issues. He warmly welcomed the CAC and his team, expressing appreciation for their visit.
