A new additional uniform has been approved by the Nigeria Customs Service to give its officers and men variety of uniforms that can be worn depending on the weather and assignment to be executed.
This was contained in a release made available to PortNewsNigeria by the Public Relations Officer of the Service, Deputy Comptroller Joseph Attah.
According to the release, the additional wear was officially presented to the public by the Ag. Deputy Comptroller General of Customs in charge of Tariff and Trade, Isa Talatu Mairo and the Service Public Relations Officer, DC Joseph Attah.
The new additional uniform has white atop the usual ash coloured trouser with a tie to match. Officers and men working in offices, airport and especially during hot weather will find it easy and more comfortable to wear on duty.
Attah said ‘For the avoidance of doubt, this is not a change of uniform but an addition to give officers and men variety of official wears.
‘The white top which can either be long or short sleeve is part of the ongoing reforms aimed at giving officers additional outlook that befits a Service operating on high integrity standard.’
Attah said the Comptroller General of Customs, Col, Hameed Ibrahim Ali (Rtd) expressed the hope that the additional wear would help to improve the image of the Service as well as provide more comfort for operatives at certain time and in appropriate assignment to increase productivity.
