Being Commandant of Customs Training College Remains My Best Posting– Hadison
Commandant of the Nigeria Customs Training College, Deputy Compt H.Hadison says the college has strategically churned out more than 500 graduates since he mounted the saddle in February last year.
This is irrespective of the fact that the college has graduated thousands of cadets since its inception more than 50 years ago.
In a brief chat recently, he also against the expectation of many, stated that the opportunity to superintend over the college as its Commandant remains the best appointment he so wishes to have.
Justifying his position, he revealed that the opportunity to be in charge has opened his horizon as he continues to learn every day.
Against the run of events where officers prefer to be either in the operational areas where they can make big money, Hadison spoke of his desire to impact knowledge, having requisite rest of mind in offering service and ensuring that the customs has a retinue of future men and women who can take the agency to greater heights.
‘This is the greatest opportunity to impact knowledge and am happy that those who came through this college are very appreciative of our efforts ‘
He said the curriculum of the college has made it imperative that officers can withstand the vicissitudes of the job no matter where they find themselves.
He commended the Comptroller General, Bashir Adewale Adeniyi, MFR for all the provisions and logistics to make the institution one of the best Customs Training centres in the world, pledging that they will not leave any stone unturned in achieving its mandate. ‘Am not sure, I would have loved any other posting than this.
Am really giving my all and am enjoying the training responsibilities placed on my shoulders by the Comptroller General.
On the provision of facilities and accommodation in the college, he pointed out that everything is optimum.
According to him there is enough hostel accommodation for students, class rooms as well as facilities for officers who were posted to the Federal Operations Unit, zone A or any Customs formation for ad hoc duties.
He stated that the medical facility in the institution is top notch to take care of students in training. He described the institution’s learning environment as very conducive, promising to engage in quality training and retraining of customs men and women to be able to confront the challenges of the profession especially in the area of technology.
He thanked the Comptroller General and his management for all their support which has given the students as well as the graduates the requisite knowledge to excel in their chosen profession, while describing his relationship with command controllers in the zone as mutually beneficial.
