Seme Customs Command Generates N.7b In August
Customs Area Controller of the Seme Area Command, Mohammed Aliyu, has revealed that the command generated N701million in the month of August, and made 48 seizures with a duty paid value of N32.9 million.
The amount raked in August was N202m in excess of the amount generated in July 2017.
Aliyu said taking a cursory look at the Command’s revenue profile from January to date, it can be deduced that the fluctuating revenue figure for each month was dependent on the volume of importation through the corridor which could be attributed to some of limiting factors.
He noted that the fluctuating revenue which is now gradually increasing with each passing month, was occasioned by the downturn on economic activities and other technical forms of revenue leakages that are now been professionally addressed, adding that the command is committed and focused in implementing the core functions of the service without distraction.
He affirmed that the leadership of the Command is leaving no stone unturned in order to ensure that every revenue leakages are completely blocked, and the appropriate revenue due to the Federal Government collected.
