Blessing Iruoma, Port Harcourt
The Nigeria Customs Service has solicited for the support of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission through training programmes to improve the capacity of its personnel.
The new Custom Area Controller in Port Harcourt, Comptroller Awwal Mohammed made the request during a courtesy visit to the Port Harcourt zonal office of the EFCC.
Mohammed said he was at the EFCC with a message to improve on the cordial relationship between the Agencies. “I want to assure the Zonal Head, of total cooperation, working in harmony to improve on our cordial relationships,” he said.
On his part, the Head of the Port Harcourt Zonal office of the EFCC, Usman Imam congratulated Mohammed on his appointment, and assured him of the support of the zone in making his tenure successful.
The EFCC boss who recalls his recent visit to Mohammed’s predecessor, harped on the imperatives of institution building.
“A few weeks ago, I was at your office to introduce myself to your predecessor. That he has left and you are now in the saddle tells us one thing, the institution is what binds us together. So, in whatever we do, we must strengthen our institutions to achieve their objectives”.
It would be recalled that about 23 officers drawn from the various brigades in the 6 Division Nigerian Army, attended a workshop recently organised by EFCC in Port Harcourt.
Participants at the workshop include officers from the Division headquarters, Bori Camp, Port Harcourt; 63 Brigade, Asaba; 13 Brigade, Calabar; 2 Brigade, Uyo; 16 Brigade, Yenagoa and 3 Battalion, Warri.
