Comptroller General Of Customs Resigns His Appointment. by Fearcom(m): 10:06am On Aug 17, 2015
The Comptroller General of the Nigeria Customs Ser­vice, Abdullahi Dikko Inde has thrown in the towel.

Daily Sun gathered that the Customs boss resigned following indication that he would be fired by President Muhammadu Buhari.

It was also gathered that ever since President Buhari came into power, Inde has made spirited efforts to be in his good books to no avail.

Sources revealed that since the result of the March presidential election was an­nounced, the Customs boss, who backed former presi­dent Goodluck Jonathan, had tried to make amends but failed.

He was said to have shunned Buhari in 2011, when his support was sought and therefore his ef­fort to now align with him (Buhari), after the March victory was like medicine after death.

Born on May 11, 1960, Inde who is from Katsina State as Buhari, became Comptroller-General of Customs on August 17, 2009.

He enlisted in the Super­intendent Cadre of the Nige­ria Customs Service in 1988. From 1988 when he enlisted in the Service, he made tre­mendous progress by rising to the rank of an Assistant Comptroller-General within a few years. His promotion was quite rapid as he quick­ly rose to the rank of an As­sistant Comptroller-General within a few years, but be­cause of his performance over the years, he was given a very prominent position of the ACG Headquarters from there and in no time, he was made the Comptroller-Gen­eral of Customs.

He was appointed a mem­ber of the Port Decongestion Committee in 1994. This snowballed into his appoint­ment in 2001 to open Phase II and III of the Kirikiri Lighter Terminal to ease congestion.

He has served in several customs commands which include Tincan Island Port, Apapa, Imo Command, Kaduna, Investigation and Inspection Headquarters, Abuja, Badagry Area Com­mand, Seme Border, AC­GHeadquarters, Comptrol­ler-General of Customs.
