The Nigeria Customs Service (NCS) generates over N1billion daily in Apapa port, Lagos.
The revenue, sources said, is being generated as a result of full implementation of the destinationinspection scheme by the NCS and successful implementation of the Pre-Arrival Assessment Report (PAAR) by its officials.
The amount generated, Customs’s sources said, is part of benefit of what the Comptroller-General of Customs, Alhaji Dikko Abdullahi and his team are doing to reduce the cost and time of doing business in the ports.
But some clearing agents operating at the port have, however, expressed concern over delays in the issuance of the PAAR by Customs.
The agents alleged that it takes up to two weeks to get PAAR as a result of bottlenecks created by Customs officials.
