The race towards who takes over from the incumbent Customs Area Controller (CAC) of the Apapa Command of the Nigeria Customs Service (NCS), Comptroller Willy Egbudin, seems to have intensified.
For those who may not know, Comptroller Egbudin retires from service next month.
Already, 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 by Tribune 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 the paper 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.”
