In a statement by the command’s Public Relations Officer, Mr. Uche Ejesieme, the Area Controller of the command, Comptroller Yusuf Bashar explained that the amount generated was due to the operational reforms and policies of the service.

Also, the controller said that the full automation and computerisation of Customs processes and procedures had helped in enhancing the general performance of the Service; coupled with his insistence that due diligence must be followed in all transactions.
He stated further that the Command Control Communication and Intelligence System (CCCIS) is a way of further enhancing and perfecting operational processes at the Ports. The Controller stressed that all these measures were put in place to curb sharp practices and for the purpose of re-engineering the entire operational and data system for the actualization of desired results.
He urged importers and customs agents to take advantage of the command’s Dispute Resolution Committee, charged with the responsibility of resolving disputes and contest all issues for last resolution.
