Retirement: Customs Comptrollers jostle for Apapa Command CAC

Willy Egbudin,

Ahead of the September 2016 retirement of  the incumbent Customs Area Controller (CAC) of the Apapa Command of the Nigeria Customs Service (NCS), Comptroller Willy Egbudin, some ambitious Customs Comptrollers, mostly at the headquarters of the NCS, have reportedly intensified their lobby to be posted to the Apapa Area 1 Command, which is considered as the juiciest command in the land.

Findings have further confirmed that already, the Customs management at the headquarters in Abuja is already profiling the list of possible Comptroller to replace the former Lilypond and Seme commands’ controller.

A source within the Service told our correspondent that “Apart from their relationships with the DCGs and ACGs on how they can be posted to Apapa, some of the Comptrollers have already began efforts on some level of political undertones, aimed at influencing the posting.

“As it is, we don’t know who is coming to Apapa, but it is obvious that the officer that will succeed Egbudin must have headed a command before.”
