The Tincan Island Command of the Nigeria Customs Service last Thursday witnessed a new dawn following a change of baton in it’s leadership. This development came on the heels of the recent re-deployment of some Senior Officers by the Customs Management aimed at re-jigging the Service for a sustained functionality.
The immediate past controller of the Command, Comptroller BASHAR YUSUF handed over to the new controller at exactly 3.45pm on 1st February, 2018, as he has been redeployed as Comptroller Pre-Arrival Assessment Report (PAAR) Ruling Centre.
Comptroller MOHAMMED ABDULLAHI BABA MUSA was born in 1964 and enlisted into the Nigeria Customs Service as Cadet Officer in 1990 and has served in various capacities which includes but not limited to Zone ‘A’ Headquarters in 2005 – 2006, Tariff and Trade headquarter’s department from 2011 to 2017, Post Clearance Audit (PCA) where he was in-charge of System Audit.
The new Controller has promised to build on the legacies of his predecessor in all ramifications and called for the support of all critical stakeholders in the task ahead. Comptroller MUSA has been variously described as a highly disciplined officer and gentleman, highly knowledgeable in Customs modernization procedures and therefore posses the requisite competence to deliver on his mandate.
He is happily married with children.
