It also provided an opportunity for a true assessment of the space in the facility contrary to the opinion advertised in the media, which suggests that the facility was either overcrowded or congested.

Speaking about the ACG’s tour of the facility, Ejesieme said, “This is coming on the heels of some insinuations in the media space which erroneously indicated that the facility is filled to the brim, and therefore can no longer be readily available for deposition of overtime/seized goods.

“The facility can comfortably accommodate about 9000 containers and other general goods.”

The ACG was received by officer in charge, A.C. William Akpabio, who led other officers and stakeholders on the working tour.

“Feeling quite elated at the conduct of the officer/men, the ACG charged them to ensure transparency and professionalism in discharge of their duties, to enable the service accomplish its mission and vision”, Ejesieme said.
