The ITMT Corporate Conference 2018 is aimed at Appraising, Appreciating and further projection of Nigeria Customs Service as a performing agency that has contributed immensely to national economic development in conjunction with the numerous media partners.
To enhance understanding and expectation of the activities of the corporate conference, the five segments are hereby outlined:
APPRAISAL SEGMENT: This segment captures the lectures and the intellectual deliveries and the lessons to take home.
THE CONFERMENT/CERTIFICATION SEGMENT: As an academic institute with all prerequisites, conferment is an endorsement that can be added to the recipient’s Curriculum Vitae and Citation. Conferment of Grand Fellow of the institute on the CGC is the first of its kind since 34 years of her existence. Again, it is germane to mention here that the institute had devoted her entire history to championing high and middle-level manpower training.
MEDIA PROJECTION SEGMENT: This is pivotal in this corporate conference from our numerous media partners which is meant to further shore up the image of Nigeria Customs Service through massive media campaign. Even after the conference, there will be post media projection.
THE AWARD/RECOGNITION SEGMENT: This segment is to crown the efforts of the officers and men of the Nigeria Customs Service under Col. Hameed Ali (Rtd) for their immense contribution to National Development.
COMMUNIQUE SEGMENT: At this juncture the communique team will will read the conference communique which we believe will help in as National policy frame work to the audience.
The lecture topics are as follows: “The role of Nigeria Customs service in achieving sustainable agricultural growth in Nigeria”,“127 years of Nigeria Customs Service 1891-2018; an Overview, and “the effect of foreign exchange policy on Nigerian economy.” And this topics will be anchored by Prof Pat Utomi, Dr Hon Chris Asoluka former Chairman Oil and Gas Free Zone Authority Lekki Lagos, Prof Bongo Adi of Pan-Atlantic University, Lagos, Prof CC Eze and Prof Gabriel Olatunde Babalola of University of Lagos. Attendance is strictly by invitation.
According to the Press release from the Institute the administration of Col Hameed Ali (Rtd) to a greater extent has proved critics wrong because in 2015, lots of Publications provided exclusive insight on how the current workings of the Nigeria Customs Service, has become a source of concern. According to the Publications, Opinions were divided over the propriety of the appointment of the CGC. Disturbed by the development, most stakeholders unanimously maintained that having a non-career person as the head of Customs would largely not augur well for the country. They particularly contended that the new CGC would underperform.
For us there is no other better time for this worthy programme than now in view of the positive signals from the administration of Col. Hameed Ibrahim Ali (Rtd). We have painstakingly assessed and evaluated the performance of Nigeria Customs Service under his watch and we are bold to say that he has proven himself a quintessential administrator. We have compared the results delivered so far in about 3 years of his resumption in office with that of his predecessors. We have quantified the truism of the assertion of his outsider status that went viral and noted that he has what it takes. We have gone through the revenue statistics and seen the difference. We meticulously viewed at the 41 items that were banned from accessing FOREX which commenced in his administration and how he cushioned the effects thereafter and still broke old records. We have evaluated the effects of the structural reforms since his resumption. We have observed closely his working relationship with the officers and men of the agency. We took time to assess his antecedents, past achievements etc. Lastly, the recording of its highest-ever monthly revenue collection of over N100b for the month of May, 2018 is another record breaking performance coupled with 2017 annual revenue generation of over one Trillion which is the highest in 127 years.
“Furthermore, we could recall that, upon his appointment, President Muhammadu Buhari handed three fold mandate – “Go to Customs, Reform Customs, Restructure Customs and increase the Revenue Generation” and Upon acceptance, Col. Hameed Ali said that his mission in Nigeria Customs Service is to make it the best not only within Nigeria but across the world”. “My mission is to make sure we clean ourselves of all the bad impression we carry along, and to ensure that we meet the mandate set for us by the government. And I believe that all of you will have no other mission than to fall in with mine. We must work hard; we know where our short comings are and where we have excelled”
“You can agree with us that the statistics on ground reveals a man that is delivering on his promises. Nigeria Customs Service can boast of effective performance in the areas of reforms, restructuring and increase in the revenue generation. The standard of discipline has improved tremendously amongst men and officers of the Nigeria Customs Service hence earning global respect. He has consistedly maintained a good working relationship. His role in the promotion, training and welfare of officers and men of Nigeria Customs Service is said to be adequate to a reasonable extent. It is also worthy of note that under the administration and Management of Col Hammed Ibrahim Ali (Rtd) the introduction of an additional uniform to officers and men of Nigeria customs Service was approved having been in the pipeline for a while. In his words, while giving his nod for the official use of the new uniform, Col. Hameed Ali expressed the hope that the additional uniform will help shore up the service image”.
In another development, the release stated that the apprehension of smuggled cars, arresting of suspects, general enforcement and suppression of smuggling activities along water ways and border communities could only be said to be more efficient now hence assisting the growth of Local economy. The Role of Nigeria Customs Service in achieving sustainable Agricultural growth in recent time cannot be over emphasized as Nigeria has recorded lots of success stories in Agriculture as a nation.
The major objectives of the conference is to sensitize all stakeholders and participants on the proactive roles of the Nigeria Customs Service in the Nation’s economy and to engage in sound and intellectual interactive sessions on the correlation between the Nigeria Customs service and Agricultural sector of the economy. It will equally applaud and recognize the conscious effort of the Nigeria Customs service as one of the performing agencies in Nigeria hence inspire sound achievers, scholars of great integrity and other stakeholders. It will serve as a platform that will connect and network with top professionals and visionary leaders at the conference, thereby, fostering business and Professional relationships. The Post Conference Objective is to further project the image and Integrity of Nigeria Customs service globally in conjunction with our numerous Media Partners.
