There was a mild drama today at the Nigerian Customs Headquarters as an Assistant Superintendent of Customs (ASC1) Officer identified as Nura Dalhatu allegedly promoted himself to the rank of Deputy-Comptroller General (DCG).
Nura after promoting himself reportedly visited the Comptroller General, Col.Hameed Ali, claiming he was directed by President Muhammadu Buhari to assume the office of comptroller-general (CG).
Cable News reports that sources at the headquarters in Abuja said:
“As he came in, officers were saluting him because he was wearing that rank.
“Sometime in May, he had posted on Facebook that he had been directed by the president to take over from Hameed Ali, and today when we saw him in the new rank, we thought, indeed, he has been promoted and so directed by the president.
“He went inside the CG’s office, sat in the waiting room, expecting the CG to handover to him.”
