NEW PTML Customs Controller solicits stakeholders Partnership

“With this challenge I will urge and plead to the sectional heads that the corporation given to him should be extended to me, because without your cooperation the achievements cannot be done”
He expressed happiness with the peaceful nature of the PTML command, saying that he has been hearing all that has been happening at the command right from the Headquaters. “so please extend that corporation and by the grace of God we will achieve” he pleaded
While giving stewardship of his stay at the command, the former Comptroller Tunji Aremu noted that the task at the PTML command has been enormous but that with stakeholders support he has always been meeting up with his monthly revenue target.
According to him without the stakeholders the command wouldn’t have achieved what it did.
“The task was enormous but by the special grace of God, since my arrival here in January we have always been keeping the pace, and for every success recorded like this it is a collective responsibility, i don’t know how to thank my officers”
“I am delighted because as at this time i am leaving PTML command my target was N7.12billion and this is unprecedented and i will like the new comptroller to keep up the pace” he said.
Aremu pleaded that the double portion of the support he received should be accorded to the new helmsman.
He also solicited for prayers in the discharge of his duties at Tincan ports where he has gone to assume duty.
