Vehicle imports down at Tin-Can Port

Vehicle imports at the ports at the Tin-Can Island Port Com­mand, Lagos, have dropped, the Public Relations Officer of the Ni­geria Customs Service (NCS), Mr. Chris Osunkwo said.

Osunkwo stating this in Lagos explained that low import was due to the decline in subsistence imports by small occasional im­porters of cars, who seized op­portunity by sending cars to their relations for sale, in exchange for cash.

He said that nowadays such people had resorted to using the “Western Union Money Trans­fer”, adding that this had affected importation of used cars.

Osunkwo, however, said the low vehicle imports had not af­fected the revenue of the com­mand, adding that there were many sources of revenue for gov­ernment, like the general cargo.

According to him, officers that are technically sound are manag­ing strategic positions and they collect maximum revenue for government.
