The Comptroller-General,  made this known during a working visit today, Thursday 13th 2019 to the headquarters of the National Association of Government Approved Freight Forwarders in Lagos.


The CGC, who was represented at the event by the Assistant Comptroller General and Customs Coordinator in-charge of Zone A, Mr Kaycee Ekekezie, said that the feat was made possible as a result of the automation of customs operations at the ports.


According to the customs boss, the increase in revenue generation has helped in the prompt payment of salaries of workers of the NCS and made the organisation a critical contributor to the nation’s treasury in terms of revenue generation.


“The automation of the customs system at ports and borders has made it easy for the service to block revenue leakages and meet targets.


The customs helmsman, who charged the freight forwarders on trade compliance, said that sincere declaration and truthful documentation would aid both the customs and the forwarders to achieve a common goal of trade facilitation devoid of cargo delays.


The NAGAFF Founder, Dr Boniface Aniebona, who hosted the occasion in his remarks at the event, asked port users to help the NCS by adhering to trade compliance.


He said that such a drive would foster good relationship with the customs personnel.
