The Nigeria Customs Service (NSC) has inaugurated a clinic at its Western Marine Command, Apapa, Lagos, to take care of its officers and the host community.
The clinic was named after the wife of its Comptroller-General, Hayija Sa’Adiya Abdullahi Dikko.
Speaking at the inauguration, Abdullahi, who was represented by the Deputy Comptroller-General, Musa Tahir, said he was happy the Controller in charge of the Western marine, Umar Yusuf, had rehabilitated the command within his eight months in office.
Abdullahi said the clinic came at a time when the Customs introduced operation “Hawk Descend” which will make the smugglers look for alternative ways outside the roads and bushes, stressing that the waterways will be their next port of call.
“I know that officers and men of the command are up to the task because they have the necessary wherewithal and coupled with their training on Ak47, I know you are equally well-prepared,” he said.
Abdullahi said that the service is serious about the welfare of its officers, adding that Usman had keyed into the vision of ensuring that the officers are taken care of through the provision of the clinic.
He said that the clinic is for the officers and also the host community, pointing out that Customs management will continue to support the command.
The Customs boss assured further that management will ensure that the clinic serves optimally, justifying the purpose for which it was established, while providing all the necessary facilities.
