Lagos - The Apapa Area Command of the Nigeria Customs Service (NCS) generated N28.1 billion in May.
The command’s Area Comptroller, Charles Edike, said in a statement on Monday in Lagos that the revenue was N1.2 billion lower than the N29.3 billion generated in April.
He ascribed the decrease to some revenue generated in the later part of May, which did not reflect in the account.
He however, noted that such carryover would reflect in the June revenue generation of the command.
He also said the two public holidays of May 1 and May 29 affected the revenue for May.
He pointed out that the income was generated through levies collected on import duties, port, wheat flour, wheat grain, iron and cement.
He said the target of the command was to reach N30 billion monthly, adding that its officers would endeavour to surpass the target.
