Between January and September 2019, the Nigerian Customs Service, NCS has generated over one trillion naira in revenue.

According to data from the Department of Research and Statistics and confirmed by the NCS’s public relations, the revenue was generated from 32 commands.

The statistics showed that the service recorded the highest revenue of N123.6 billion in the month of July followed by N118.6 billion realised in May.

The data also revealed that the lowest revenue was recorded in the month of February with N86.3 billion.

The low in February’s revenue might have been caused by 2019 general elections due to partial closure of borders within the periods of the polls.

The statistics also indicated that immediately after the partial closure of borders, the service recorded N115.6 billion in September, with about N6.1 billion more than what was realised in August before borders were closed.

The revenue was generated from import duty, levy, excise duty and other fees.

There is every possibility, with these statistics, by the end of 2019, NCS revenue will surpass the earning of 2018, which stood at N1.2 trillion.

Recall that the 2018 revenue by customs was N164.8 billion more than the 2017 collection, which was N1.037 trillion.
