Redeployment: Jibo Assumes Duty At Seme Customs Area Command

Comptroller Bello Jibo has assumed duty as  the  new Controller of the  Nigerian Customs Service ( NCS) , Seme Area Command.

Mr Hussaini Abdullahi, the Customs Public Relations Officer, Seme Command, stated  this in a statement he  made available to newsmen in Badagry,  Lagos State,  on Tuesday.

Abdullahi said  that Jibo was transferred to Seme Area Command following  the recent appointments and deployments  of some higher ranking officers in the service.

He said that Jibo assumed  duty at the command  on Sept. 28, 2020.

He said that the outgoing Acting Controller, Deputy Comptroller Chedi Wada,  at a brief ceremony handed over the mantle of leadership of the command to Jibo.

Wada thanked the Comptroller General of the NCS and the management team for the opportunity to serve as  the Area Controller in an acting capacity.

He urged  the officers of the command  to accord the new  controller  the needed support  so that he would be able to effectively perform well at Seme Command.

Wada prayed for God’s guidance and intervention for a successful tenure for the area commander.

Also speaking, the new Customs boss for the command, Mr Bello Jibo,  commended the outgoing Acting Customs Area Comptroller for a successful tenure and wished  him the  best of luck in his future assignments.

He said that with the ongoing border drill exercise and COVID-19 lock down order, the task of effectively securing one of the nation’s borders remained his utmost priority.

Jibo solicited the  support and cooperation of the officers and men of the command to effectively manage the affairs of the command by reducing smuggling and other trans-border crimes to the barest minimum.
