The Minister of Marine and Blue Economy, Adegboyega Oyetola, led a delegation from the Ministry, including the Director-General, Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency (NIMASA), Dr Bashir Jamoh, and the Managing Director of the Nigerian Ports Authority (NPA), Bello Koko to the International Customs Day Celebration in Lagos.
The Minister restated his commitment to collaboration and the D-G NIMASA, Dr Jamoh, re-echoed the Minister’s position on collaboration.
According to the NIMASA D-G, “The Nigerian Customs Service deserves to be commended for being steadfast in countering smuggling activities, all in a quest to encourage the use of Nigerian Ports and shore up accruable revenue to the Federal Government.
More will be achieved if we increase the level of collaboration and cooperation. We can barely make progress without interagency collaboration, particularly in the maritime sector. Complementing each other’s activity will surely increase the Nigerian Port Efficiency and ultimately lead to the development of the Nigerian economy particularly the maritime industry”. ‎
