Hameed Ali, comptroller-general of Nigeria Customs Service (NCS), has threatened to sack any officer who live above what the service gives them.
Ali gave the warning while decorating some newly promoted officers of the service in Abuja on Friday.
Customs recently promoted 2,508 officers to various ranks, which included the appointment of three as members of management.
The customs boss warned officers against making money illegally, saying they can survive on what the service give them if they are disciplined.
“I will show the way out to any officer who thinks he can not survive with his remuneration but involve in illicit ways to acquire wealth,” he said.
“I know the service gives you enough that you can survive with, it is just a question of prudence. You can never have everything you that you desire to acquire.
“You must prioritise your needs and by the time you do that, you will meet your needs.”
He charged the newly promoted officers to be more committed and dedicated to their duties, urging them to be fair and firm in their decisions and actions.
