His words, ”We have a role to play and the customs also has a role to play in securing our ports. We have to complement ourselves on the ease of doing business. If the port thrives the economy will benefit from it because revenue will be generated and employment of Nigerians will increase.”
Speaking earlier, Comptroller Bomai disclosed that Service still remains a baby of the police saying that two police officers started what is today known as customs.
Comptroller Bomai added that police play paramount role as lead agency on security matters in the ports operations pointing out that the common goal from the government on national security must be achieved.
The PTML Command Controller noted that inter agency cooperation is key adding that formal and informal synergizes must be held high in galvanising the existing relationship with sister agencies.
He also frowned at inter-agencies rivalry in port operations noting that cooperation and collaboration was key to achieving success in policing the ports.
He said : “The task of policing the seaports is more difficult than the conventional policing in the country. Without inter-agencies collaboration in this country there is no way we can move forward.”
