by on October 14, 2016

The revenue strives of the Apapa Com­mand of the Nigeria Customs Service dipped by N2b in September 2016 as it could only collect N32,947,903,912.38.

Worried by the outcome, the Customs Area Controller of the command, Willy Eg­budin has called on his men to ensure they do their job well to increase collection through appropriate valuation, necessary issuance of debit notices (DN) and strict anti smuggling operations.

”Consider yourselves privileged to be serv­ing in a sensitive Area Command that adds value to national income and revenue. We must continue to sustain our maximum reve­nue collection tempo and not betray the trust reposed on us”, Egbudin charged further, call­ing attention to relying on intelligence.

”At this period of national economic reces­sion, we must apply intelligence, tact and le­gitimate enforcement in detecting and plug­ging all possible areas of revenue leakages”, he encouraged, stressing the need to make Apapa Command a no go area for any form of lawless activity, as the command must con­tinue in its drive for higher revenue without compromising national security,” he noted.

As parts of efforts to jack up collection, he charged officers, especially in control of ter­minals to increase their vigilance against any form of concealments, under declaration and smuggling as well as ensure strict applica­tion of the directives from the Headquarters on outright seizure of any cargo or consign­ment that is falsely declared with the intent of duty evasion.
