The Comptroller General of the Nigeria Customs, Hameed Ali has admonished customs officers to desist from all form of corrupt practices as anyone of them caught will be jailed for 10 years as stipulated by law. Ali gave the warning while speaking with some officers during his visit to Sokoto/Zamfara/Kebbi Area Command today.

The minimum jail term for corrupt officers is five years, but I will make sure that any officer found to be corrupt gets the maximum jail term of 10 years. This is to serve as a deterrent to any officer who finds himself in the Customs to make money and not to earn money. I am not saying that there are no good, incorruptible officers in the service, but there are few bad eggs who are giving the service a bad name,
” he said.

Is he the one to fix the penalty? Naija na wao.In any one in power can make his own law.Why not allow the law maker to their jobs and those to apply it also to do theirs.Division of labour indeed.Your job as the big oga, is to see the daily running of your department and bring to notice to the rules of laws those to be found  wanting. Oga say you hear.

I just wish corrupt politicians can get 20years instead of bail.

So if corrupt custom officers are to get 10years in jail. Then how many years would corrupt police get ?
