ANLCA Says It Can Generate N2trn Customs Revenue


The
Association of Nigerian Licensed Customs Agents (ANLCA) says that its members
alone can generate N2 trillion as customs revenue in 2015.

The National
President of ANLCA, Mr Olayiwola Shittu, made this known in an interview in
Lagos.
He noted
that the association contributed over N800 billion to the account of the
Nigeria Customs Service in 2014.
Shittu said
that the efforts of the Federal Government in developing the maritime sector,
especially freight forwarding, would assist in increasing revenue generation by
freight forwarders.
The ANLCA
chieftain suggested that the government should stop granting duty waivers,
arguing that such waivers did not add any value to Nigeria’s economy.
“Revenue
will flow if the gap is closed,’’ he said. 
He also
suggested creation of ministry of maritime services out of the Federal Ministry
of Transport, which he said, had been saddled with too many jobs.
According to
Shittu, establishing the ministry would result in opportunities for harnessing
the potential of the maritime industry.
