The Controller in charge of the Tin Can Island Command of the Nigeria Customs Service, Comptroller Musa Abdullahi last week visited the Western Port Command of the Nigeria Police in line with efforts to enhance inter-agency collaborations.
The Comptroller, who resumed at the command about two months ago, said the visit had become necessary to fraternise with other security agencies through which he plans to promote synergy and information sharing among the relevant security agencies at the port.
He insisted that the ultimate goal of all the security agencies is to ensure smooth operations at the seaports, which will in turn enhance collection of revenue for the Federal Government in the overall interest of Nigeria’s economy.
While soliciting the support and cooperation of all stakeholders, he pledged that the command under his watch will maintain an open-door policy and also give a listening ear to every segment of the stakeholders.
Meanwhile, Commissioner of Police in charge of the Western Command, Celestine Okoye, who played host to the Comptroller pledged to cooperate with the Customs in the discharge of its core functions of revenue collection and anti-smuggling operations.
