The Nigeria Customs Service (NCS) and the Office of the Presidential Amnesty Programme (PAP) have joined forces to bolster their operations in the Niger Delta region.
This strategic partnership was solidified during a recent meeting at the Customs Headquarters in Abuja, where the Acting Comptroller-General of the NCS, Bashir Adewale Adeniyi, hosted the PAP Interim Administrator, Major General Barry Ndiomu (Rtd).
Adeniyi who described Ndiomu’s visit as timely, noted that it will further enhance the peace building efforts of the two institutions in the Niger Delta region, and open up other vista of opportunities, adding that the NCS stands to benefit from PAP’s resourcefulness in terms of information sharing.
While commending Ndiomu on his massive achievements since he took up the PAP top job, the Custom boss equally expressed optimism that both agencies of government will work more closely to actualize the Renewed Hope Agenda of President Bola Tinubu.
In his remarks, Ndiomu stated that the visit was part of his ongoing strategic and far-reaching efforts to create linkages between the PAP and other relevant institutions to create windows of opportunities for ex-agitators to secure viable and sustainable means of livelihoods.
Ndiomu further restated his commitment aimed at making the PAP more successful, and appealed to the Customs Chief to enroll ex-agitators with top degrees into the Service.
The PAP Interim Administrator lauded Adeniyi for his strides in the NCS, and assured that his administration will continue to work with relevant stakeholders to sustain peace in the Niger Delta region.
