Customs says it can generate more money for Nigeria if port roads are fixed
Nigeria’s ports could benefit from improved roads and a more conducive climate.
In just eight months, the Tincan Island customs command generated N320 billion (NAIRAMetrics)
According to the Comptroller of the Tincan Lagos Command, Abdullahi Musa, the Tincan Island Command of the Nigeria Customs Service (NCS) generated N320.96 billion for the federation from January to August 2021.
Tincan Port, on the other hand, is dealing with infrastructure and logistical issues, according to Musa.
Insufficient access roads, network connectivity, poor power supply, and the lack of government warehouse facilities are among the problems preventing increased revenue creation at the ports, according to him.
These characteristics, he claims, are impeding the creation of a business-friendly climate at the ports.
These variables also explain why ports are always congested and why moving import/export containers and empty containers to and from ports takes so long, according to Musa.
