The Comptroller-General of the Nigeria Customs Service, Dikko Abdullahi,who resigned on Monday, August 17, 2015has revealed that he decided to leave office so he would not be “asked to go.”
Speaking with State House correspondents after meeting President Muhammadu Buhari, Abdullahi said it was time for the younger generation to come through.
He said: “The time I’m leaving is the time I feel those young ones that have developed the software can come up and manage the software they developed for the operations of the Service.
“So that is basically the reason and I’m sending out this signal to all those who have stayed put.
“Don’t stay until you are asked you to go. When you feel you have done so much and you believe in the system you have built, then why do you stay? Why don’t you be an umpire? Leave, be by the side and watch and advise.”
