Mr Abejide who disclosed that Nigerians had been calling him on the exercise, noted that the clarification became important as he recieved lots of threats from Nigerians, which includes taking the NCS to Court, during the last Recruitment Exercise conducted by the Agency.

He decried the level of pressure being mounted on members of the House to lobby for slots on their behalf, stressing that the amount of pressure necessitated the press briefing to correct some erroneous insinuations.

Mr Abejide urged Nigerians, especially those interested in applying for Nigeria Customs Service jobs, to find out the cadres that exist in their LGAs.

He further disclosed that the House was working on a bill to reform the Nigeria Customs Service, adding that it would repeal and re-enact the law to enable the NCS recruit massively.

According to him, once the bill is ready and if it becomes law, many of our youth will be recruited into the Agency.

Mr Abejide explained that the NCS ought to have 30,000 personnel but that currently, it has about 15,000 personnel, noting that the number was grossly inadequate.
