Customs conducts nationwide exam to promote transparency

The Nigeria Customs Service has conducted a nationwide promotion examination for its officers and men.

The Acting Comptroller General of Customs, Wale Adeniyi said promotion examination was essential to regenerating the service while ensuring that those who were deserving of various positions were elevated.

“We had some pep talks with them to help them believe in the system and understand all the efforts that we have made to ensure that there is a lot of integrity in the process.

We want them to know that promotion is now based on performance and not who you know.

“The report I got regarding the level of preparation attests to the fact that we are now reconciling ourselves to that reality;

It is about what you know, how capable you are and how you can demonstrate the knowledge of the job.

“So that is what should come out, and that is what we count for each of these officers writing the exams,” Adeniyi explained.
