The Nigeria Customs Service (NCS) has said that it generated N799 billion between January and May 2021.
This represents a N226.1 billion increase when compared with the amount generated for the same period in 2020.
Spokesman of the Nigeria Customs Service, Mr Joseph Attah, disclosed this on Monday, May 31, 2021, while addressing the press in Abuja.
Attah said that this was made possible by the strict implementation of all extant rules governing imports, exports, and excise in the country.
He noted that the strategic deployment of officers and automation of the processes and regulations also contributed to the feat achieved.
Attah added that the improvement recorded in the revenue generated was a result of the officers and men putting national interest above themselves.
He said other reasons were robust stakeholders sensitisation, increasing level of compliance from stakeholders, and improved working relationship with the National Assembly.
Attah said that the current management was taking strategic actions that would impact positively, the national economy and security.
