The Nigeria Customs Service (NCS) Murtala Muhammed Airport Command has directed its operatives to ensure 100 per cent physical examination of cargo going through the Airport.

A statement by the Command's Spokesman, Ephraim Haruna, said the Head of the Command, Comptroller Jayne Shoboiki(Mrs) mandated Sectional Heads and Officers in Charge of Sheds to ensure compliance with the directive in order to improve on the Command’s revenue generation and importantly, ensure security.

Shoboiki charged the officers on the importance of team spirit, and directed the releasing officers on the need to be careful on their duty of inspection, for proper valuation purposes.

She informed the officers that the technical team from Abuja that came to launch and install the Nigeria Customs Integrated System II (NICIS II) in the Command was still on ground to resolve all teething problems and put stakeholders through before it would leave.

Congratulating the newly-promoted officers, the Customs Area Controller cautioned the officers to remain disciplined as the Service is a paramilitary organization. She also encouraged the others on commitment to duty to earn their own promotion.

While promising to reward outstanding officers at parades, she also warned against improper dressing, which she said attracted punitive measures against any erring officer.
On the sidelines, the Command launched the new Service uniform.
