Customs generate N130bn in 6 months

The Nigeria Customs Service, Tin-Can Island Command, Lagos, has generated N130 billion between January and June 2017.

The Public Relations Officer of the command, Mr Uche Ejesieme, said this in a revenue chart made available to newsmen on Tuesday in Lagos.

According to Ejesieme, the command recorded N19.83 billion in January; N21 billion in February; N20.95 billion in March and N20.31 billion in April.

He said that in May and June, the command collected N23.87 billion and N23.97 billion.

 

Ejesieme said that the feat was achieved based on the command’s zero tolerance for false declaration or other infractions.

He also mentioned that the good welfare package put in place by the management for officers and men of the command was encouraging.

“The welfare package include a well-equipped clinic, ICT centre with 30 work stations fully networked for training and capacity building of officers and other stakeholders.

“The Customs Area Controller in charge of the command, Comptroller Yusuf Bashar, has said that all areas of revenue leakages will be identified and blocked.

“The controller has also said that any attempt by an importer and or his agent to circumvent the process will be dealt with seriously,’’ Ejesieme said.
