The Comptroller-General of Customs, retired Col. Hameed Ali, said there would be no favoritism in dealing with personnel as any officers who stayed for three years in a unit should expect posting.
Customs boss warns against favoritism among personnel
All officers are under close watch because if any mistake is done by any unit command, it will register internationally and that is not good for the image of the service.
Ali said this when he visited the FCT command on Tuesday in Abuja, adding that no more permanent posting to unit commands and departments in the service.
He said that every officer in customs must work to earn promotion.
Ali emphasised the need for officers to imbibe discipline in carrying out their duties and shun corruption.
"All officers are under close watch because if any mistake is done by any unit command, it will register internationally and that is not good for the image of the service.
"The general view of the public is that customs is the most undisciplined and corrupt service because of the nature of our job that needs to be addressed.
"You are not in customs to make money and enrich yourself but to work hard because if you are caught you must face the law.
"None of you should make me use you as an example; if your intention is to be corrupt then you cannot survive this time around.
"No more god-fatherism in customs; you will earn promotion, not get promotion and for you to earn it, you must attain the qualification based on performance evaluation, ’’ Ali said.
