Knowing the coveted officer and a gentleman – Abdullahi Dikko Inde (MFR, CFR)
The recent national award which elevated the Comptroller-General of Customs, Abdullahi Dikko Inde, from a Member of the Federal Republic (MFR) to Commander of the Federal Republic (CFR), could not have come at a better time, considering his contribution to national development.
This Katsina State born man has indeed been a blessing to the nation, especially since his appointment as the Comptroller-General of the nation’s Customs Service. He has turned the fortunes of the Service around through the overhauling of its entire process and procedures to the extent that the NCS now equates itself with its counterparts across the world.
Born on May 11, 1960 at Musawa, in Musawa local government area, Katsina State, to the family of AbdullahiUsmanInde, Dikko began his early education in 1967 at Musawa Primary School, Musawa, where he obtained his first school leaving certificate.
He then proceeded to Government College, Kaduna, in 1974/75 where he obtained the West Africa School Certificate in 1979/80. His leadership trait which was observed by his teachers resulted in his selection as House Captain of Elkanemi House of the prestigious college.
