Customs Area Controller, TinCan Island Command, Mba Musa has charged all the newly promoted officers of the command to show more commitment and diligence in the discharge of their duties to justify the confidence reposed in them by the Service.
Controller Musa who stated this in his address on the occasion of the decoration of the newly promoted officers on Friday at the TinCan command reminded the officers that promotion comes with additional responsibilities in line with the popular maxim that, ” To whom much is given, much is expected”.
He maintained that the Nigeria Customs Service is consistent with its call for professionalism, due diligence, accountability and transparency which they must show in their approach to official responsibilities.
Controller Musa further stated that their promotion was in appreciation of the roles they played in the success story of the Nigeria Customs Service, adding that their promotion therefore requires constant work and re-dedication to improve on their service to the Service.
“May I therefore implore you to recognise the fact that promotion comes with additional responsibilities but I have no doubt in my mind that you all have the capacity and the wherewithal to justify the confidence reposed in you by the Comptroller General of Customs, Col. Hameed Ibrahim Ali (Rtd.) and the Management Team.
“You will be paying particular attention to the core vision and mission of the Service, particularly the three (3) R’s which is Restructure, Reform and Raise Revenue as well as increase your preparedness to key into the change mantra of the Customs Management,” he stated.
He charged them not to let down their guards in their commitment to service delivery.
Earlier in her remark, one of the beneficiaries of the new promotion, Controller Caroline Ayo, expressed profound gratitude to the Area Controller, Mba Musa for making the area conducive for officers to thrive and charged officers to pray for him always.
In a chat with The Claver Magazine, the Public Relations Officer of the command, Uche Ejesieme, commended the CGC and his management team and the Area Controller in ensuring the promotions of the officers.
He observed that before now, promotion was fraught with favoritism but now it’s characterised with meritocracy.
Ejesieme advised officers who did not benefit from the promotion exercise to be patient and continue to give their best, stressing that, “that somebody did not benefit from the exercise does not mean that the person is a dullard, it could well mean that it is a product of availability of vacancy in some of the cadre because every cadre has allotted number of vacancies for that cadre.
“I enjoin them to be patient, hopeful and diligent so that at the end of the day, they too will celebrate as we are celebrating today.”
