The Nigerian Customs Service says it would soon sensitise Corps Members on the dangers of smuggling.

This was disclosed by the Comptroller General of the Nigerian Customs Service, Colonel Hameed Ibrahim Ali who said that the anti-smuggling message would be more beneficial to the country if it is passed to the grass-roots through the Corps Members.

In a statement by the Director, Press and Public Relations of NYSC, Mr. Eddy Megwa said Ali disclosed this when the NYSC Director General, Brigadier General Muhammad Kaku Fadah, paid him a visit in his office in Abuja, Nigeria’s capital.

The Customs boss hailed the Management of National Youth Service Corps for grooming graduate youths of the country for leadership positions and self employment.

The Comptroller General also commended the good conduct of Corps Members that are serving at the NCS Headquarters, describing them as worthy of emulation.

Colonel Ali during the visit promised to improve on the existing cordial relationship between the two agencies for the benefit of all Nigerians.

Earlier, the Director General, Brigadier General Muhammad Kaku Fadah commended the Customs Service for accepting the Corps Members posted to the organisation for their national assignment.

He however solicited support from the NCS for the upgrading of facilities at the NYSC FCT Orientation Camp in Kubwa, Abuja.

Fadah also commended the Customs Service for its conscientious efforts in revenue generation to the federation account.

The DG promised to consolidate on the existing collaboration between the NYSC and the Nigerian Customs Service.
