Revenue Target: Nigeria Customs Service sets N2 trn for 2020



The Nigeria Customs Service has disclosed that it is targeting a revenue of N2 trillion for the year 2020.

Public Relations Officer of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Tony Orilade, disclosed this on Tuesday at a function in Port Harcourt, Rivers state.

Orilade quoted the Customs Area Controller, Port Harcourt, Comptroller M. B Boyi, as having made the disclosure during a courtesy visit to the Head of the EFFCC Port Harcourt Zonal, Mr. Usman Imam.

According to the EFCC image maker, the Comptroller General of Customs, Col Hammed Ali(Rtd)was the one who set the N2 trillion target for the Service.

He disclosed that the federal government had on its own set a revenue target of N1.5 trillion for the Service before the customs boss raised it to N2 trillion.

It would be recalled that the Service had last year generated N1.3 trillion revenue.
The PH Customs Controller had visited the EFCC to seek collaboration between the two agencies.

He had requested the EFCC to assist the Service in its efforts to meet the revenue target for the year.

It is on record that the Customs Service had assisted the EFCC to combat money laundering in the past.
