NATIONAL SECURITY: CUSTOMS, DSS, SYNERGIZE TO INTENSIFY ONSLAUGHT AGAINST SMUGGLERS

The Nigeria Customs Service (NCS) says it will continue to enhance its strong collaboration with the Department of State Services (DSS) to combat the adverse effects of smuggling and arms proliferation on Nigeria’s soil.

This was made known by the Ag. Comptroller-General of the Service, Bashir Adewale Adeniyi when he paid a familiarization visit to the Director-General of DSS, Yusuf Magaji Bichi, at DSS Headquarters, Abuja.

The Customs Boss, emphasized that maintaining a mutual partnership between the two Agencies will go a long way in enhancing national security.

Responding, the Director-General of the Department of State Service (DSS), Yusuf Magaji Bichi, commended the Comptroller-General of Customs, Bashir Adewale Adeniyi MFR, for his ‘notable’ resilience in carrying out the affairs of the Service, since his appointment.

DG Bichi affirmed that “teamwork is the basis for success in the fight against insecurity as no agency can do it alone.”

He further highlighted that sustaining the Customs-DSS synergy will be a game changer in the counter-threat actions across border areas, pledging that his office will continue to provide intelligence to Customs to aid their performance.

He, however, vowed to make DSS facilities available for training and retraining of middle cadre customs officers.

As a mark of commitment to his pronouncements, the DGSS immediately directed his relevant departments to urgently engage their Customs Counterparts for the required synergy to actualize national security objectives. He also took the CGC on a tour of critical infrastructure before the team returned to the Customs Headquarters.
