The Nigeria Customs Service (NCS) has generated revenue of about N1.002 trillion within 9 months of 2019 (January – September).
According to the data from the Department of Research and Statistics and confirmed by the NCS’s public relations office, the revenue was generated from 32 commands.
The NCS recorded the highest revenue of N123.6 billion in July, followed by N118.6 billion realised in May,
The data also shows that the lowest revenue of N86.3 billion was recorded in February. This may be attributed to the border closure during the general elections.
During the period under review, Apapa area command has the highest revenue of N313.5 billion.
The statistics also indicated that immediately after the partial closure of borders, the service recorded N115.6 billion in September, with about N6.1 billion more than what was realised in August before borders were closed.
The revenue was generated from import duty, levy, excise duty and other fees.
