Nigeria Customs Service generates N799bn within 5 months


The Nigeria Customs Service (NCS) has disclosed that the agency generated N799 billion revenue between January and May 2021.

The Public Relations Officer of the agent, Mr Joseph Attah, made this announcement on Monday, May 31, while addressing newsmen in Abuja.

Attah explained that the revenue was higher compared with what was realised in the same period in 2020, adding that there is ‘a positive difference of N226.1 billion’

According to him, the increasing inclination of officers and men to put “national interest above selfish interests is responsible for the improvement of revenue.”
