Airport Customs generated N20bn in 2022 – Comptroller

The Murtala International Airport Command of the Nigerian Customs Service, on Wednesday, disclosed that it generated total revenue of N20 billion last year.

The Customs Area Controller in charge of the command, Muhammed Gidado, in a statement, said that there was N1.8 billion increase in revenue when compared to the N19 billion the command collected in 2021.

He attributed the increase to the integrity of passengers in the declaration of goods and the high level of compliance towards voluntary payment of duties.

The statement read in parts, “The seamless travellers’ clearance procedure adopted by the command over the period is worthwhile as evidenced in the MMIA command revenue collected from August to December 2022. This implies the effectiveness of initiated and adopted strategies.”
