The acting comptroller-general of the Nigeria Customs Service (NCS), Adewale Adeniyi has said that the management of the service is reviewing its operations at the ports and borders.

Adeniyi, who spoke on Monday on the sidelines of a sensitization workshop on the recently signed Customs Act, noted that the NCS wants to improve service delivery without compromising the country’s security.

“One of the things I intend to do as we start is to take a look at our procedures, processes at the ports and border areas, and our enforcement strategies, and we are going to review all of that,” he said.

“We want to do it in such a way that it promotes user friendliness without compromising our national security. You will get details when we unfold the plans.”

Adeniyi said there are still cases of petrol smuggling, but they “cannot afford to let saboteurs take over the economy.”

“We still have some incidents at some border stations. The rate has decreased. We are going to be watching the situation very closely,” he said.

The acting CG said the new customs law would allow them to use technology to enhance their operations.

“Technology has revolutionized the way we do our things; the customs are not exempt,” he said.

“We need a legislative framework that is more flexible and that allows us to infuse technological innovation into our operations.

“These are more of what this new legislation has given us, and we are excited.”
