The state command service collected N124.9m in revenue in one month.

The Area command Comptroller, Wada Chedi, disclosed to the National Agency News (NAN) that N124.9 million of revenue had been retrieved from August by the NCS command in the state. He asserts that compared to the preceding month, there was a significant increase of N25.1 million in revenue collected within the period. Months ago, the NCS command in the state generated over N99.7 million in revenue in less than six weeks despite the spate of bandits’ attacks on its corridors of operations in the state.

Chedi argues that the command was able to accomplish this milestone owing to its unwavering effort and strategic measures put in place, particularly on the Jibia – Katsina city route, which bandits use to frequent. He attributed the command’s success to its collaboration with the security agencies in the state. Goods worth 20,263 tons were exported through the state command’s border, a far cry from more than 10,000 tons exported in the previous month.

Command services assure continuous effort in curbing smuggling.

He guarantees that the agency will keep up its efforts to reduce smuggling over the state’s borders to the lest minimum. The Comptroller also appealed to the nearby communities to help NCS officers in charge, in their continuous efforts to combat smuggling by providing information on suspected smuggling activities. “The Customs Service doesn’t mind going about your daily normal business, but it has to be legal. Anyone may seek our counsel, and we will help them navigate the corporate world”.

In a renewed, robust effort to combat smuggling, the state command has re-strategized its operations to put a stop to revenue leakages and curb the import and export of illegal goods within its area of operations. Additionally, it warns the smugglers and their collaborators to refrain from ravaging the economy of the nation and pursue legitimate business. Chedi claims the command under his watch is more committed and determined to tame smuggling in the state.

NCS commenced the collection of revenue from different sectors.

Generally, the NCS has generated N1.293 trillion between January and June 2022 of revenue for the federation. Representing a 28.83 per cent increase from the revenue generated within the period last year. The service also issued 116,691 pre-arrival assessment reports (PAARs) against 129,667 processed in the same period of 2021. Timi Bomodi, NCS public relations officer, avers that the amount increased compared to the N1.004 trillion generated for the corresponding period in 2021.

According to Bomodi, the amount generated in 2022 surpassed the 2021 service’s achievements by N48 billion (28.8 per cent). A sum of N156.3 billion was also generated into non-federation accounts as collections were made on behalf of other government agencies. The customs services have commenced the collection of tariffs from extant traders producing carbonated and sugary drinks in the month of June, which was newly added under schedule 5 of the standard external tariff (CET). The service is also expected to start collecting revenue from the telecoms sector.

Year 2022 revenue collection is expected to increase.

The service generated over N68 billion from manufacturers of beer, spirits, and other alcoholic beverages, cigarettes, and tobacco, among other products. on excise duty, levied on manufacture, sale, and consumption of goods. Over N1 billion in revenue was generated from carbonated and sugary drinks in the month of June. It is expected that duties collected from these sources would contribute to a rise in revenue in the current year. Collections will commence on these products and services as soon as the necessary methods are implemented.

The Nigerian Custom Service is an arm of government service that is so important to the nation. If things brought into the country are unchecked at the borders of the nation, it exposes us to so many dangers as a nation. Of course we are now generating more revenue from our borders but more effort needs to be made to completely reduce smuggling of weapons, movement of bandits from neighboring countries.
