CAC Dera Nnadi
Nigeria Customs Service, Seme Area Command has rewarded its officers for excellent performance in the war against trafficking of goods.

According to a statement released by the Seme Custom Area Controller, Dera Nnadi, the performance of the officers has helped the area command to have been closed to its N1.9 billion revenue proposal for the 2023, surpassing N950 million that the agency has proposed to rain in within six month.

Eulogizing the performance of his officer, Seme CAC Dera Nnadi stated that "I want to commend all of you for your good conduct, for keeping the command as the epitome of good behaviour, congratulations".

"It is your tenacity that has been helping us, we have made tremendous seizures that have been globally acclaimed", he added.

"In terms of revenue, I will also congratulate you people, we have done so much in not only securing the border, but we have also been able to raise revenue; as of yesterday our revenue has risen to over N1.159billion", he noted

This is a tremendous achievement considering that our target for the year is N1.996 billion. What it means is that we have done far above half of our expected revenue target when we are just starting the second half of the year. I am very proud of you for your commitment and doggedness", he explained.

Comptroller Nnadi urged Officers to acquaint themselves with the new Customs Act 2023, as sensitization for stakeholders will soon commence.

"Every Officer should know about the new Nigeria Customs Service Act, 2023, we have been used to Customs & Excise Management Act (CEMA), so the transition to the new Act is going to be a very difficult one if you do not study it, you cannot intervene in any Customs process if you do not know the law backing you", he said.

As a reward for excellence, officers who were part of fake $6 million currency seizure, the seizure of fake International Passports as well as the seizure of donkey skin worth N10 million were awarded for their gallantry.
