The Seme Area Command of the Nigeria Customs Service generatedN594,195,311.23 in the month of January 2017. The Command also made Forty Two (43) seizures with a Duty Paid Value (DPV) of Ninety Two Million Three Hundred and Eighty Five Thousand Eight Hundred and Seventy Naira (N92,385,870.00). The source of the revenue generated is dominated by imported general goods and Baggage Assesment using the Passengers Baggage Entry Sytem (PBES) platform.

Commenting on the revenue figure, the Customs Area Controller, Compt. Dimka, V.D disclosed that the amount realized is commendable, he said the effect of the policy has no negative implication to the Nigeria Customs Service, since no revenue is lost to the Federal Government coffers despite the ban on the importation of new and fairly used vehicles through the border. This is because the revenue that supposed to be collected through the land border is still collected at the sea port without leakages.

The Customs Area Controller further re-iterated that every officer must ensure total compliance of the policy to succeed. He said all hands must be on deck to ensure that the success of the policy is intelligence driven with a robust relationship between the border Command and the host Communities.

The Command helmsman enjoined his officers and men to work assidiously as never before to give their best to the service in a challenging time like now. The Customs Area Controller re-stated that as the busiest land border Command that is strategically located along the corridor that link other West African Countries, the Command cannnot afford to fail because much is expected from the border Command. He assured that the command will continue to perform her statutory functions of revenue generation, facilitation of legitimate trade, combating of smuggling activities across the frontier and securing the Nation’s territorial intergrity among others. He said the anti-smuggling Unit of the Command is already frustrating the attempt of smugglers who dare to try the might of the Government in smuggling fairly used vehicles through the land border.

In another development, the Customs Area Controller in his welcome address (during the visit of the Assistant Comptroller General of Customs Zone ‘A’ ACG Abueh, M.N to Seme Area Command), lamented the absence of facilities (Baggage hall, Parking space, Examination bay, Functional Scanner etc) that led to operational setback hence making the border command un-equiped to operate in line with the global best practices as obtainable in other developed Countries.

The CAC took the visiting ACG for on the spot assessment of the Baggage Unit, ETLS and Export Seat all located in Benin Republic and the Government Warehouse of the Command at the Nigerian site.

The Command also observed the International Customs Day (ICD) celebration on the 26th January,2017.

The line-up events that commemorated the ICD celebration commenced with a parade, a lecture presentation on the theme” DATA ANALYSIS FOR EFFECTIVE BORDER MANAGEMENT”, to all the invited dignitaries (Stakeholders, Host Communities, Relevant security agencies) and a novelty football match between the Nigeria Customs Service Seme Command and the Nigeria Immigration Service Seme .
