The Nigeria Customs Service has insisted that the N1.6bn paid to a consultant to conduct the ongoing recruitment exercise into the service was budgeted for both the recruitment and training for the entire period of the exercise.

The Vice-Chairman, Senate Committee on Customs, Senator Ade Fadahunsi, had accused the Comptroller General of the Nigerian Customs Service, Col. Hameed Ali (retd.), of paying N1.6bn to a consultant for the recruitment of 3,200 persons to the service.

The Public Relations Officer, NCS, Mr. Joseph Attah, explained on Tuesday, that the funds covered the recruitment and training, which will last six months.
Giving a breakdown of the figure, he said, “The feeding will cost N2, 000 per trainee a day (N6.4m/day and N192m/month), which is about N1.152bn for the 3,200 persons for the six-month training at the Customs Training College at Ikeja, Lagos.
