Customs generates N221bn in 10 months

19 November 2012, 16:03

Lagos - The Nigeria Customs Service (NCS), Apapa Area 1  Command, on Monday, said that it generated the sum of N221 billion between January and October 2012.

The Public Relations Officer of the command, Mr Emmanuel Ekpa, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos that the figure was higher than the N187 billion recorded in the corresponding period in 2011.

He said that the command had a monthly target of N27 billion, totaling N324 billion for 2012.

Giving a breakdown, Ekpa said that the command generated N15.4 billion in January; N21.2 billion in February; N21.1 billion in March; N19.7 billion in April; and N23.7 billion in May.

He said that the highest amount of N36.7 billion was recorded in June; N19.4 billion in July; N23.4 billion in August; N19.6 billion in September; and N20.2 billion in October.

Ekpa said that the shortfall in monthly revenues was caused by non-clearance of goods destined for the Northern states due to the security situation in the region.

He also attributed the shortfall to low level of importation in the country.
