Adewusi said NIPOST over the years had seized many weapons and drugs in the past which he said some people attempted to smuggle into the country using the post.
“Each time this happens, we pass all of these to the security agencies, the Customs, NDLEA and other security agencies that are also residence within our premises.”
He said there had been a longstanding committee of NIPOST and Customs, which he said was no longer in place. He urged the Customs boss to resuscitate the committee.
PMG also discussed the issuance of seizure notice whenever Customs officials seize items or goods from people and Address Verification solution which is a technology-based solution for tracking addresses of people.
While responding the Controller General of NIPOST, Col Hameed Ali said there have been a symbiotic relationship between the Nigeria Custom Service and NIPOST in delivering adequate service delivery.
He said there was no reason the two agencies should not support each other, while pledging NCS support for NIPOST.
Col Hameed attended to every request made by NIPOST boss and directed his officials to ensure implementation.
” Customs should take advantage of the Address Verification Application by NIPOST to support its operations, which according to him, “would help Customs to track its clients”.
