The Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) is committed to supporting the Nigerian Customs Service (NCS) to promote a technology-driven service to boost the nation’s economy.

NCS Public Relations Officer Mr. Joseph Attah made this known in a statement in Abuja on Wednesday.

Attah said that the CBN also promised to establish the control center to monitor all the scan sites in its attempt to boost the national economy, especially the agricultural sector.

It revealed that the Ministry of Finance, Budget and National Planning had already purchased three new scanners to improve the proposed electronic customs operations.

He said this means that within the next six months, NCS will have around seven functional scanners to be mounted at strategic entry points even before the full deployment of e-Customs components that would ensure the deployment of 135 modern scanners.

However, Attah expressed his appreciation for the service and commended the CBN leadership for this strategic intervention in the interest of the nation.

Meanwhile, the spokesperson added that in the service’s efforts to prevent the entry of items that could compromise the safety of citizens, the economy, and the well-being of people, 4,304 assorted items were seized with a royalty payment value of 28,200. million naira.

He said the seizures included weapons, ammunition, illicit drugs, used clothing, vegetable oil, frozen poultry and foreign rice, among others.

He assured Nigerians of the customs’ full commitment to the course of protecting the national security and economy.

“We call on Nigerians, especially the business community, to support the NCS as our borders open to the African Continental Free Trade Agreement (AfCFTA) in order to benefit from the trade agreement and other cross-border activities.” he claimed.
