The Nigeria Customs Service (NCS) claims that it has generated N1.003 trillion revenue in six months.
Joseph Attah, Customs Public Relations Officer, stated this on Thursday while addressing journalists in the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja.
According to him, the said amount was realized between January to June 2021, stating that the development was more than the N713.5 billion generated within the same period in 2020.
Attah stated that the development brought the difference of about N290.2 billion, expressing optimism that the service may realize more positive changes subsequently.
“Hitting the trillion-Naira mark within six months is unprecedented in the Service. This feat is a result of the resolute pursuit of what is right and willingness to adapt to changes brought about by global health challenges occasioned by covid-19.
“The Service revenue profile continues to be on the increase due to ongoing reforms that exploit the potentials of technology.
“This is possible through robust automation of the processes and procedures. Deployment of officers is strictly based on the Standard Operating Procedure”, he added.
