The Nigeria Customs Service has called on the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, to assist it in realizing the 2020 revenue target handed to it by the Federal Government.
M. B Boyi, Customs Area Controller, Port Harcourt made the appeal on Tuesday January 28, 2020 during a courtesy visit to the Command by the Port Harcourt Zonal Head of the EFCC, Usman Imam.
Boyi disclosed that while the Federal Government gave the Service a revenue target of N1.5trillion for 2020, the agency has a more ambitious projection of N2trillion.
“Last year, government gave us a revenue target of N1 trillion. We delivered N1.3 trillion.
“This year, 2020, N1.5 trillion is the target. But instead of N1.5 trillion the management said we should make it N2 trillion.
“We will do what we could to meet our target in this Command.
“This collaboration will help us. Where we have challenges we will call on you,” Boyi said.
