Dera Nnadi, a newly promoted Comptroller of Customs, has assumed office as the Controller in charge of the Nigerian Customs Service (NCS), Ogun Area Command 1.
Nnadi replaced Comptroller Peter Kolo who has proceeded on pre-retirement leave.
Prior to his appointment, Nnadi had served in the Command as Deputy Comptroller in charge of Administration and before his recent promotion to the rank of Comptroller of Customs.
Kolo had handled over the mantle of leadership to his successor on Monday, at the Conference Room of the Command.
In his handing over speech, Kolo expressed his gratitude to the principal and entire officers for their unflinching support and cooperation through his stay at the Ogun Area Command 1.
He congratulated the new CAC and described his appointment as a round peg in a round hole.
He added that he “is rest assured that he will sustain his legacy and even build on it.”
In his own response, Nnadi thanked the NCS Management for finding him worthy of the position and pledged to discharge his duty with due diligence and high sense of responsibility.
He thanked the outgoing CAC “for his mentorship and selfless service to the Nation.”
Nnadi called on all the principal officers and the entire Officers/Men of the Command to extend their loyalty and cooperation to him.
