I fear no probe, Customs boss, Dikko Inde says

Outgoing Comptroller-General of the Nigeria Customs Service, NCS, Dikko Abdullahi Inde, who voluntarily resigned on Monday, has said he is not afraid of any probe into his tenure.

The outgoing NCS CG whose retirement is due on Tuesday told State House correspondents when he visited President Muhammadu Buhari on Monday that he is ready to defend every action that took part in the six years he was the head of the Customs Service if the ongoing probe of revenue-earning agencies being conducted by the Federal Government is extended to cover his tenure.

“Revenue appreciated by 20 per cent from when I took over and the officers that did the work are still around and I think that the NCS, I stand to be corrected, is the only service that is fully automated in the system of operation.

“We have no fear. The time I’m leaving is the time I feel those young ones that have developed the software can manage it,” said Dikko, adding that, he is leaving the Customs when the ovation is loudest so as to give chance to others.
