Customs Declare N57bn As Revenue For Seven Months In Port Harcourt

The Area One Command of the Nigeria Customs Service (NCS) in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, has announced revenue generation of N57.4 billion between January and July this year.

Chedi Wada, the Area One Comptroller, revealed the number over the weekend at a news conference in Port Harcourt.

According to him, the figure is 10.6% larger than the revenue the Command realized during the same time period last year.

Wada said the feat was achieved despite many challenges, especially “a global shipping downtime”, which affected revenue generation in the month of April.

In terms of anti-smuggling efforts, the Comptroller stated that the Command was able to identify and detain containers that were improperly declared through a painstaking physical examination.

He urged smugglers to stay away from the Port Harcourt Area One Command, pledging that any such cargo would be seized and the offenders would be apprehended and brought to justice.
