1 min


The Nigeria Customs Service (NCS) says its revenue generation has increased to the region of N5.5 billion daily.
The Comptroller-General (CGC), Hameed Ali, made this known during a working visit to the headquarters of the National Association of Government Approved Freight Forwarders (NAGAFF) in Lagos.
The CGC, who was represented at the event by the Assistant Comptroller General (ACG) and Customs Coordinator in-charge of Zone A, Kaycee Ekekezie, said the feat was made possible as a result of the automation of customs operations at the ports.
According to the customs boss, the increase in revenue generation has helped in the prompt payment of salaries of workers of the NCS and made the organisation a critical contributor to the nation’s treasury in terms of revenue generation.
“The automation of the customs system at ports and borders has made it easy for the service to block revenue leakages and meet targets. The system has made transaction in ports user friendly while eliminating human contact and its attendant frictions in the cargo transaction business,’’ Ali said.
He charged the freight forwarders on trade compliance, said sincere declaration and truthful documentation would aid both the customs and the forwarders to achieve a common goal of trade facilitation devoid of cargo delays.
