The TinCan Island 2 Customs Command weekend disclosed that in the month of January, it generated N834.6million in January. The Public Relations Officer (PRO) for the command, Godwin Andishu, said the figure jumped N274.9 million higher than the N559.7milion generated December 2016.
While linking the rise to increased effort of the command to boost port activities in January, after a Yuletide lull in the preceding month he made it clear that “The command is committed to improving further its revenue generation this year”.
“The Controller, Alhaji Abdulkadir Dalhatu, has put in place measures to ensure that we achieve our revenue target.
“These include blockage of revenue loopholes, training and retraining of officers, deployment of ICT tools at the command and engagement of the stakeholders on how best they could be served.
According to Andishu, “By the time the results fully manifest, we will be talking of a command that is full of activities and generating more revenue”.
Business Hilights recalls that Tincan 2 had announced a revenue figure of N8.1billion for 2016, with May recording the highest N1.5billion, being the highest for that year.
