The Senate has asked the Federal Government to use the already appropriated N14. 2billion in the 2023 budget for the construction of Nigerian Customs Academy / Training School in Bauchi.
The Senate also mandated its Committee on Customs, Excise and Tariff when constituted, to embark on effective oversight on construction and completion of the envisioned One – Stop Shop operational centre for the revenue generating agency.
Resolutions of the Senate were sequel to a motion sponsored by Senator Umar Shehu Buba, co- sponsored by 16 other Senators, stating that the institution will provide professional training for officers of the Nigeria Customs Service in tune with the current realities of professionalism.
All the Senators who contributed to the motion, supported it with the adoption of the three prayers.
