Comptroller Tenny Mankini Daniyan has assumed office as the new Customs Area Controller of the Port Terminal Multiservices Limited (PTML) Command, following the deployment by the Comptroller General of Customs, Bashir Adewale Adeniyi. This development comes after the elevation of the former Customs Area Controller, Assistant Comptroller General (ACG) Saidu Abba Yusuf, to the rank of Assistant Comptroller General (ACG) of Customs.

During a brief handover ceremony, Comptroller Daniyan pledged to implement the provisions of the Nigeria Customs Service Act (NCSA) 2023, focusing on maximum revenue collection and enhanced trade facilitation. He emphasized the need to prevent revenue leakages and urged stakeholders to comply with regulations by making sincere declarations and paying duties on time. Comptroller Daniyan also stressed the importance of building trust and collaboration with stakeholders, including importers, licensed customs agents, freight forwarders, and the management of Grimaldi.

Comptroller Daniyan, who has served in various positions within the Nigeria Customs Service, including as Deputy Comptroller in charge of revenue at PTML, promised to build on existing customs community relations through regular stakeholder engagements and promote programs like the Time Release Study (TRS). He also aims to migrate compliant stakeholders to the Authorized Economic Operator (AEO) status and guide them on benefiting from the Advanced Ruling scheme.

Outgoing Customs Area Controller, Assistant Comptroller General (ACG) Saidu Abba Yusuf, expressed optimism that Comptroller Daniyan's leadership will surpass previous achievements. ACG Yusuf praised the Comptroller General for the strategic deployments being made across the service, describing Comptroller Daniyan as a very competent officer who will take the command to greater heights. ACG Yusuf has assumed a new role in the Human Resources Department at the NCS Headquarters.

Comptroller Daniyan's extensive experience and robust interaction with stakeholders at PTML position him well to drive revenue growth and enhance trade facilitation. His appointment is seen as a strategic move by the Comptroller General to boost customs operations at PTML, and stakeholders have expressed confidence in his ability to lead the command to achieve its goals.

As a seasoned customs officer, Comptroller Daniyan has worked in various areas, including Sokoto, Kebbi, Apapa, Borno/Yobe, and has served in the Tariff and Trade Department of the NCS Headquarters. 

He has also attended courses and served as an instructor/lecturer in the service training institution. His wealth of experience and knowledge of the customs operations will be invaluable in his new role as Customs Area Controller of PTML Command.

The new CAC PTML is an alumnus of Bendel State University (now Ambrose Alli University) Ekpoma, Edo State, where he bagged a Bachelor of Science Degree in Architecture. 

He holds a Masters Degree in Architecture from the University of Nigeria, Nsukka, and another Masters in Facilities Management from the University of Lagos, Akoka. He has attended courses on valuation, classification, price search, document preparation, and has participated in Operation Haske Biu at the Armed Forces Command and Staff College, Jaji Kaduna State.
 As a way of imparting knowledge to younger officers, Comptroller Daniyan served as an instructor for new customs recruits for the 2009, 2011, and 2012 sets.

Comptroller Daniyan, a member of the Nigeria Institute of Architects (MNIA), is married with children and enjoys playing football, chess, and golf in his free time. His appointment is widely seen as a positive development for the PTML Command, and stakeholders are optimistic that his leadership will bring about significant improvements in customs operations and trade facilitation.
