Customs Comptroller-General, Abdullahi Inde resigns


Dikko Inde Abdullahi
In a bid to beat plans by President Muhammadu Buhari to remove him, the Comptroller General of the Nigeria Customs Service, Abdullahi Dikko Inde has resigned from his position.
Born on May 11, 1960, Inde who is from Katsina State as Buhari, became Comptroller-General of Customs on August 17, 2009.
He was reported to have shunned Buhari ahead of
the 2015 election, when his support was sought and therefore his effort to now align with him (Buhari), after the March victory for the All Progressives Congress, APC.
It was also gathered that ever since President Buhari came into power, Inde has made spirited efforts to be in his good books to no avail, including sealing the warehouse of a rice-importing company over backlog of default in clearing import duty.
According to sources, since the result of the March presidential election was announced, the Customs boss, who backed former president Goodluck Jonathan, had tried to make amends but failed.
