The Management of Customs Excise and Preventive Service (CEPS) has transferred more than 60 officers from the Aflao Sector and replaced them with officers drawn from other
stations across the country.
The move was informed by recent developments at the Aflao border, in which some personnel responsible for the border were caught red-handed in corrupt practices and gross misconduct, unequivocally short of standards set for members of the service.
Robert Mensah, Chief Collector, Client Services, CEPS told B&FT that the measure is also aimed at instilling discipline and professionalism among the senior and junior ranks of CEPS staff.
In a statement signed on behalf of the Commissioner by the Deputy Commissioner in charge of Administration and Human Resource, Imoru Farouk Adam, CEPS Management will subsequently conduct more transfers as well as re-train staff to be responsible to their obligations.
Under a change management programme introduced under the ISO 9001 :2008 standardisation scheme, CEPS is implementing a continual improvement system in its service delivery.
In this regard, CEPS is re-structuring its processes to meet the expectations of the public.
