Customs in Ondo/Ekiti promotes export trade to boost foreign exchange inflow
As Compt Ngozi visits non-oil exporting Companies
* Supervises 2,233 containers of cocoa bean export
The Customs Area Controller (CAC), Ondo/Ekitti Command of Nigeria Customs Service, Compt Ngozi Uche, has demonstrated outstanding leadership competence, administrative acumen and managerial expertise in rejuvenating the formation for greater productivity.
At Ondo/Ekitti Command where there are no seaports for revenue collection, Compt Ngozi has used her ingenuity and innovative thinking to generate revenue for the Federal Government through export trade facilitation.
To ensure more revenue inflow for government through non-oil export sector, Compt Uche has visited non-oil Export, companies in Akure, capital of Ondo State.
The visit was a huge success, as Compt Uche along with senior officers of her Command met the Managing Director of Export Logistics Limited and plantation in Akure, where they had exhaustive deliberation on the strategies needed to enhance economic growth through export trade.
Compt Uche in her remarks stressed that apart from revenue generation, export trade will increase foreign exchange earnings for Nigeria’s economy.
Recall that Ondo/Ekiti Customs Command under the leadership of Compt Uche supervised export of 2,233 containers of cocoa bean from January to August, 2021, an impressive performance, which attracted commendations from different stakeholders, including the Zonal Coordinator of Customs in zone ‘A’, ACG Modupe Aremu, who scored the Command high in export trade facilitation.
Aside trade facilitation, the CAC has done a lot of renovation work on Ondo/Ekiti formation to give the Command a befitting look.
