Apapa Customs Generates N540b, Collects 119b July

...As ACG Mohammed Sues for Compliance and Teamwork

The Apapa Command of Nigeria Customs Service collected a total of N540,431,401,641 as revenue from January to July 2023, even as the command recorded the sum of N119,049,235,263 in July 2023, being the highest monthly revenue made by the command since it was established.

Assistant Comptroller-General of Customs, Mohammed Auwal, who disclosed this recently at a farewell session with senior officers of the command, also sued for compliance as the bedrock of port efficiency.
According to a release by the Command Public Relations Officer, CSC Abubakar Usman, ACG Mohammed, who until Friday July 28, 2023 was Customs Area Controller of Apapa Command, lauded the revenue collection as an outcome of leakage prevention, zero compromise for duty evasion and due diligence in the face of reduced volume of trade.
While thanking the officers and stakeholders for their support , ACG Mohammed described the various interventions including demand notices to recover identified shortfalls in revenue as having been very helpful.
He specifically commended officers of the command for the impressive collection in July 2023 compared to the sum of N95b collected in January and August 2022 as the highest monthly collection for last year.
The newly promoted ACG thanked the officers, other government agencies, and members of the Apapa port community for their cooperation throughout his time as Area Controller.
According to him, the job of preventing prohibited items such as arms, ammunition, illicit drugs, and others under the import and export prohibition lists from entering or exiting the country through Apapa port was treated as a collective duty under his watch.
The ACG described inter-agency synergy and intelligence sharing as the first bold step in defeating criminals who seek to use ports for their unlawful activities.
His words, ” Compliance is one word that appeals to both government and private sector stakeholders because we are all governed by rules to which we owe duty to obey.
“Apapa port holds potential to handle the highest volume of trade in West and Central Africa with the possibility of being a trade hub for seamless cargo movement if importers, agents, and freight forwarders comply by making sincere declarations and avoiding smuggling”.
It will be recalled that the former Controller was officially decorated with his new ACG rank on Monday, July 31 2023, by the Ag. Comptroller-General of Customs, Bashir Adewale Adeniyi, MFR in Abuja.
