The new  Katsina Command  Controller of  the Nigerian Customs Service (NCS), DC Abdullahi Kirawa when he paid a courtesy call on the State’s Governor, Alhaji Aminu Masari.

 

The new Katsina Command, Controller, of the Nigerian Customs Service (NCS), Deputy Comptroller Abdullahi Kirawa has   implored the State Governor, Alhaji  Aminu Masari  to  assist the  Customs to educate the citizens, of the negative implications of smuggling on Nigeria’s economy.

Kirawa made the appeal when he paid a courtesy call on the Governor  ,saying it was to intimate him  with the change of baton in the Command and its activities.

He said it was necessary for the State  government  to assist the Customs  in carrying out advocacy among the citizens on  smuggling and its role in crippling the economy.

Kirawa also  expressed gratitude to Governor Masari for the support and help being rendered to the Command, which  has made its  task much easier.

The Governor had earlier  said that the State is  in  full  support of the closure of the Nigeria’s borders with its neighbours adding that , it  would help not only to stop smuggling of food items, drugs and ammunitions but scale up the nation’s economy.

He however spoke at length on the need for the Custom Command to stop overzealous officers from carrying out sporadic shootings in the City during operations.

This act, he said had in most cases caused panic amongst the citizenry,  while it could lead to loss of innocent lives.

The Governor assured that government would continue to support the  Command to carry on with the task of stopping smuggling.
