The Tin Can Island Command of the Nigeria Customs Service has generated N130 billion as revenue between January and June 2017.
A statement released by the public relations officer of the command, Uche Ejesieme, said the command collected the amount, which covered import duty and other fees, on behalf of government agencies during the period under review.
Details of the revenue chart showed that a total of N19.8 billion was collected in the month of January while N21 billion was collected in the month of February.
Other details showed that the revenue profile declined marginally in March with the collection of N20.9 billion when compared to the February figure, which further dipped to N20.3 billion in the month of April.
The chart also showed that the command collected the highest revenue for the period in June, which peaked at N23.97 billion followed by May when it collected a total of N23.87 billion, bringing the total to N130 billion for the first half of the year.
Ejisieme, who also commented on the impressive revenue collection despite the economic downturn, attributed it to the leadership style of the controller in charge of the command, Comptroller Bashar Yusuf who, he said, brought his multiple competencies, especially computer expertise to bear on revenue generation in the command.
