Toyota Hilux vehicles and 5,000 AK 47 rifles
to combat smuggling and illegal movement
of small arms into the country.

commitment of the Customs to the security of
the nation’s borders to check the
proliferation of illegal materials.
Dikko assured that the Nigeria Customs
would exceed its targeted internal revenue
for this year from N800 billion to N1.2
“Well, I have been given a target and I
assure Nigerians that the target is going to be
met. The target is N800 billion, but I push
my target to N1.2 trillion.

billion extra to give them- the Nigerian
people, so that they can be happy.’’
On the recently inaugurated Customs
training school in Gwagwalada, Dikko said
that the college had since started full
academic activities with middle and high
cadre officers from foreign countries.

bride of educational facilities in Nigeria.’’

the college would continue to serve as centre
of excellence in the training of relevant
manpower for the Nigeria Customs Service
