Nigerian Customs Comptroller General, Abdullahi Dikko Inde
According to an exclusive report on SaharaReporters, the Nigerian Customs Comptroller General, Abdullahi Dikko Inde, has turned in his resignation letter to President Muhammadu Buhari indicating he wishes to leave the job on August 18.
The Customs boss has two years to the expiration of his tenure, and it is unclear why he has decided to go in one week’s time. Sources revealed that several Customs leaders are currently being investigated for corruption and some may be fired or arrested.
Presidential sources disclosed that the President is looking to fill Dikko’sposition with a Customs officer from the South-South.
Reports revealed that President Buhari had earlier turned down the resignation letter, asking Mr. Dikko to give him time to study the Customs and its operations, but that he has now accepted the resignation.
It is learnt that the President, whose tenure has seen officials of several government agencies turning in similar resignation letters, has resisted such attempts. Sources say Buhari prefers to watch and then fire them the way he did with former NSA Sambo Dasuki and military service chiefs recently.
