Comptroller-General of the Nigeria Customs Service, Mr Hameed Ali, has disclosed that his agency hopes to make at least N1 trillion to the coffers of Federal Government this year.
To achieve this target, the Customs boss has charged all Customs Area Controllers (CAC) to ensure strict compliance with extant laws.
According to Mr Ali, Area Controllers must either “shape in or ship out” as there was no place for complacency in a service that plays the crucial roles of revenue collection and border security.
The Comptroller-General, who had a strategy meeting with the CACs, said they must step up supervisory role on their subordinates, ensure tighter border security, block revenue leakages, punish erring officers and promptly reward hard work and have a robust stakeholder engagement for mutual understanding.
Mr Ali declared 2017 as a year of training and re-training, stressing that “ignorance will not be excuse for any officer as there will be refresher courses for officers in batches this year.”
It was gathered that the meeting came on the heels of recent seizures of 661 pump action rifles.
The Customs boss underscored the need for the service to resharpen operational strategies for higher productivity.
During the meeting, participants brainstormed and mapped out strategies for optimum performances.
The blockchain brings new financing options to the business market. For example, Bitcoin Cash casino has adapted to only using cryptocurrency. This way, it makes it easier for their customers to deposit and withdraw in a BCH casino. Entrepreneurs have taken note of this and are looking to invest more in crypto than in fiat markets.
