Again : Compt Jaiyeoba records astronomical revenue generation
As Apapa Customs hits N16bn daily collection

The Customs Area Controller (CAC) of Apapa Command, Comptroller Babajide Jaiyeoba, has again recorded outstanding performance in revenue collection for the Federal Government, with astronomical increase of over N16billion daily collection realised in February 23, 2024.

This revenue collection milestone by Apapa Customs, which is the premier port becomes the highest daily revenue collection in the history of the Command, surpassing N11.3billion recorded in November 22, 2023, as well as N10billion collected in August 3, 2023.

It is pertinent to note that this remarkable performance in daily revenue collection by Comptroller Jaiyeoba is coming just a month after he declared over N1.1trillion revenue figures for 2023 fiscal year.

Speaking through the Public Relations Officer of Apapa Command, Comptroller Jaiyeoba described the feat as one of the expected fallouts of many strategies he has put in place to enhance trade facilitation and revenue collection for greater economic growth.

He urged officers and men of the Command to keep up the tempo of zero tolerance for infractions and non- compromise for any violation of Nigeria Customs Service Act (NCSA) 2023.

More so, this laudable revenue collection in the face of declined volume of trade was achieved as a result of weekly strategic meetings between the CAC and sectional heads to review and evaluate successes and challenges, with a view to constantly improving on the Command’s achievements.

Also, there have been more regular stakeholders’ engagments among the Command, sister government agencies, importers, exporters, terminal operators and all others involved in the cargo clearance and supply chain.

Under Comptroller Jaiyeoba, there has been a remarkable improvement in the number of containers being scanned to save time and operate in line with expectations of modern Customs administration.

While commending the officers of the Command for their dedication to duty exemplified through punctuality and integrity, the Area Controller urged importers, licensed Customs agents and freight forwarders to embrace scanning the more, as the Service under CGC Bashir Adewale Adeniyi, MFR is committed to maximum deployment of ICT for trade facilitation.

He described sincere declaration as a mark of integrity that saves time and money, resulting in a win-win situation for everyone. According to him, not making sincere declaration is poor business decision capable of causing delays, leading to issuance of demand notices and denying the declarants the benefits of enjoying fast track and possible migration to Authorised Economic Operator (AEO) status.
