Nigeria Customs Service (NCS), Ports Terminal Multiservices Limited (PTML) Command, has recorded the highest ever monthly revenue of N14.9 billion in  January.

The figure is 49 per cent higher than the N9.98 billion collected in January 2018. This was achieved by sustained interactions with stakeholders to ensure improved compliance being carried out by Comptroller Florence Dixon, Customs Area Controller of the Command.

According to Mohammed Yakubu, Customs Public Relations Officer, Dixon oversees optimum trade facilitation by ensuring that compliant vehicles are cleared from Customs control within six hours in the command. The command collected over N10 billioninto the Federation Account in February 2019. This is about N2,76 billion higher than the N7.27 billion collected in February 2018.

In 2018, the command made over N120 billion annual collection, which was about N21.5 billion above the N98.84 billion collected in 2017.

Dixon disclosed during a recent interview that the command has achieved about 75 per cent stakeholders’ compliance. She expressed optimism that this would go higher, depending on the volume of trade, adding that  no aspect of Customs function will be left unattended to in ensuring trade facilitation and revenue collection without compromising national interest and security.
