Speaking to journalists after the decoration ceremony, Adeniyi expressed gratitude to President Bola Tinubu for appointing a serving officer as the head of the agency, assuring him and Nigerians of a more effective and innovation-driven Customs Service.

He said: “In the last eight years, the Nigeria Customs Service has gone through a period of transition. In some areas, we recorded progress. We made remarkable progress in e-Customs; we made a lot of breakthroughs in capacity building. But the Customs Service can still live up to its full potential when we bring in more innovation to drive Customs operations. These are the kinds of things we are looking at in the years ahead.”
