Customs reveals how much Kano, Jigawa generated in 2023

The Nigeria Customs Service, NCS, Kano/Jigawa Command, says it generated N52.7 billion in revenue for 2023.

The Area Controller of the command, Comptroller Ibrahim Chana, disclosed this in a statement on Thursday in Lagos.

Chana said the revenue represented an increase of 26.4 per cent when compared with N41.7 billion collected in 2022.

According to him, the command did well last year in terms of revenue generation, trade facilitation, and anti-smuggling operations when compared with 2022.

He added that the command achieved voluntary compliance by its stakeholders following regular sensitisation and proactive engagement with the business communities in Kano and Jigawa states.

“Vigorous enforcement actions by men of the command have resulted in several seizures, which contributed in suppression of smuggling in the two states.

“Some of the seizures made were handed over to sister government agencies which the command has been cooperating with in the spirit of inter agency collaboration,” he said.

Chana, however, praised the various organisations for their support to the service.
