The Acting Comptroller-General of the Nigeria Customs Service, Bashir Adewale Adeniyi says his administration will not rest on its oars until the menace of smuggling is significantly suppressed in Nigeria.
The CGC made this known when he visited the Federal Operations Unit Zone ‘B’ in Kaduna as part of his official working tours to the Customs Formations in the country.
The Ag. CGC charged them to exacerbate the business of smugglers through intensifying border patrol and confiscation of unlawful items that will lead to the success of generating revenue for the Nigerian government.
Speaking at the event, the Comptroller Federal Operations Unit Zone ‘B’, Comptroller Musa Ibrahim Jalo, briefed the Ag. CGC on the level of his Unit’s successes in generating revenue.
According to him, the Customs-Community relationship in the Unit is already paying good results, as they have recently recovered N2,500,636,150 in revenue, which he said was achieved due to the commitment of the officers at the Unit.
