Africa-Press – Nigeria. Comptroller Michael Ugbagu has assumed office as the 28th Comptroller of the Federal Operations Unit zone C (FOUC) of the Nigeria Customs Service, Owerri.

Comptroller Ugbagu took over from his predecessor, Comptroller Kolade in a simple ceremony in Owerri, on Friday.

This was contained in a statement on Friday signed by Jerry Attah, Public Relations Officer, Customs FOUC, made available to journalists in Owerri, Imo State.

The statement reads, “We will ensure compliance with the current import and export guidelines using intelligence and technology to drive our operations.

“There will be watertight security against smuggling activities across the zone. Smugglers will be discouraged, frustrated and made uncomfortable, thereby making smuggling, duty evasion and warehousing of smuggled goods unattractive within the zone.

“This is a onerous responsibility and I will not let the service down,” he said.

He called for support and cooperation from the media and the general public to enable him carry out his new assignment.

Comptroller Ugbagu thanked the Comptroller-General of Customs; Adewale Adeniyi, MFR, and his entire management team, for the trust and confidence bestowed on him to pilot the affairs of the unit.

He equally thanked Comptroller Kolade for his “highly commendable “achievements while holding sway and pledged continued compliance with established guidelines while discharging his duties.
