Abuja - All officers of the Nigeria Customs Service (NCS) are to make full disclosure of their assets.

This in a new measure devised to enhance transparency and compliance with the law.?

?The directive on Assets Declaration is contained in a circular, signed by the Comptroller-General of Customs, Col. Hammed Ibrahim Ali (Rtd), and addressed to all Deputy Comptrollers-General, Zonal Coordinators and Customs Area Controllers. 

All Officers are to comply with the directive within 14 days.?

?According to the circular, the directive on Assets Declaration is in compliance with the Bank Employees Declaration of Assets Act Cap B1 Laws of the Federation of Nigeria, 2004. 

Though the Act provides for Asset Declaration by all bank employees, it also empowered the President to extend its application to other categories of persons.??

Wale Adeniyi, Customs Public Relations Officer, said authorities observed many officers had not complied with the provisions of the Act over the years.

"The 14-day ultimatum for compliance will be strictly enforced," Adeniyi said.
