 The new CAC who urged licensed customs agents, importers and freight forwarders to be compliant at all times promised that this would guarantee them the full benefits of trade facilitation.

He pledged to continually improve on PTML Command’s laudable revenue collection profile, trade facilitation, customs community relations and non- compromise on duties collection.

 In his remarks after the brief handover,  Acting ACG Okun hailed the Command as one blessed with dedicated officers and stakeholders.

He expressed gratitude to the Comptroller-General of Customs, Col Hameed Ibrahim Ali (Rtd) for the opportunity given him to serve in PTML Command between February 2020 and August 2022.

The outgoing Controller expressed delight that during his tenure, the Command’s revenue profile moved up from N11bn monthly to N27bn.

 In a tribute to ACG Okun, Bomai said:  “Acting ACG Sir, your coming has ushered in peace, stability and industrial harmony with strategic communications that would help achieve efficiency in service delivery.
