The Customs Area Controllers (CAC) of the Nigeria Customs Service (NCS), have been charged to increase their weekly average revenue from the current N13 billion to N35 billion.

In a statement signed by the Public Relations Officer of NCS, Mr, Wale Adeniyi, the Acting Comptroller-General of Customs Dr. John Atte gave the directive as part of decisions taken during a strategy session of Customs Management and Customs Area Controllers in Abuja.
 The session which was presided over by Atte was convened to discuss various areas of revenue leakages and put in place measures to plug them.

  Atte directed the immediate setting up of anti-corruption seats in all Area Commands to monitor Officers conduct and report to his office accordingly.

On anti-smuggling activities, Atte, directed the Federal Operations Units to intensify their border patrols to bring smugglers to book, emphasizing that an immediate review of all operational procedures should be focused on  giving  maximum effect to the ban on all hinterland patrols in the country.
Similarly, he stated that Task Forces under any name or guise operating in all seaports, airports and land borders are disbanded with immediate effect and Officers serving in these adhoc units were to be withdrawn and redeployed immediately.

 The new boss directed Area Controllers to take full control of their areas, stressing that they will be held responsible for staff conduct and discipline in their jurisdictions.
