Customs cancels 1,164 officers’ promotion examination



All the 1,164 officers of the Nigeria Customs Service (NCS) who gathered at the Abuja headquarters of the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) for a promotional examination yesterday, went back home disappointed.

It was learnt that a long scheduled promotion examination for top personnel of the service was abruptly cancelled. The examination was slated for 129 deputy comptrollers, 307 assistant comptrollers, 538 chief superintendents and 190 superintendents.

The affected officers were asked to report at the service’s headquarters in Abuja for the written promotion examination, which was to be conducted by JAMB.

As at Friday, 19th October, 2018, the affected officers had been issued a memo indicating that the test would hold yesterday with directives on procedures to be observed. In the memo, they were directed not to come with any form of writing materials, including pens, laptops and tablets, except the forms duly signed by their comptrollers or sectional heads as the service stated that all writing materials would be provided by the Customs.
