Customs Loses N5bn Monthly At Kirikiri Terminal


By Esther Komolafe

As the various area commands of the Nigeria Customs Service (CAC) battle  to meet the 2012 revenue target of N1 trillion naira, some Customs Area Controllers (CACs) are experiencing difficult times in realizing the targets.

The Kirikiri Lighter Terminal (KLT) Command is no exception as the Customs Area Controller, Comptroller Willy Egbudin, has lamented the lull in business activities in the command saying it was fast becoming a  serious threat towards the realisation of the N5 billion monthly target allocated to it by the Customs high command.

At a recent meeting with the leadership of the Association of Nigeria Licensed Customs Agents (ANLCA) in his office, Egbudin attributed the low level of business activities to the non-transfer of containers to the terminal from the ports within Lagos.

He said  when the command receives vessels, cargoes designated to his command were often diverted to other commands, a situation, which, has led to continuous loss of revenue for the command.

He appealed to relevant quarters to  deliver  cargoes meant for the command as stipulated in their bill of laden, for the  command to  meet its target.
