The Federal Government may relax the ban on importation of vehicles through the land border.

The government had in January 2017 ordered a ban on importation of vehicles through the land borders.

The restriction on the importation of vehicles followed that of rice, whose imports through the land borders had been banned since April 2016.

But the government may reconsider its decision after the successful implementation of a new initiative by the Nigeria Customs Service and the Customs Service of the Republic of Benin to automate and network all electronic information about incoming cargoes through the border.


The Comptroller General, NCS, Col Hameed Ali (retd.), who was represented by the Assistant Comptroller, Information and Communication Technology, Benjamin Aber, at a stakeholders’ meeting on the new initiative, expressed confidence that with a successful implementation of the bilateral electronic connectivity programme between Nigeria and Republic of Benin, the Federal Government might lift the ban on items coming through the land border.

Ali said the decision of the government to shut down importation of vehicles through the border was because the government did not have a reliable system that would assist in controlling importation.


With declarations made for imports transiting from either of the countries electronically shared, the process of import and export would be done in a transparent manner and the government seeing such transparency would be convinced to relax its stance on land border importation.

He said “Vehicles were formerly being imported through the Seme border, but suddenly it was banned because the pressure of enforcement of anti-smuggling for vehicles and claiming of lives and revenue were becoming too alarming, so the government had to restrict the importation through Nigerian ports.


“When vehicles came through the land border, we did not have a record of how the imported cars came here and fake documentation became a common phenomenon. The ban was just a control measure against the practice.”

He added, “By the time we successfully deploy this reliable, transparent and predictable programme that would assist government agencies, not only Customs, to control and regulate the importation of vehicles, the government may decide to relax such restrictions.”

Ali said the establishment of the automated platform and bilateral connectivity meant that any truck that left the Republic of Benin, the information would already be remotely sent in English to Nigeria Customs Service system.


He also gave the assurance that illegal checkpoints mounted by Customs officers and other security agencies along the border corridors would disappear automatically.

“The roads also have to be fixed, because we cannot automate clearing of goods between the Customs and at the end, the stakeholders would be complaining,” he pointed out.

He said the new platform would be deployed by June 20.

There is no trial and error in government policies.

No government has ever had 100 percent policy success.

You can call it policy reversal.

It is common everywhere.

Keep defending failure with grammar. I hope your family have eaten since yesterday? The Buharis are doing great, you are here ranting with borrowed data.

lol

broke asss niggaz everywhere I look.

go to eateries, night clubs, nkwobi and isi ewu joìnts, first class hotels, international airports etc etc and see Nigerians "eating" and enjoying their money.

there will always be rich and there will always be poor, since the last 30 years.

yes I agree, some Nigerians got poorer, partly due to the stringent economic policies where there is no longer free money to share and money to loot, and also because we lost a lot of oil revenue.

but it's not as bad as mischief makers and politicians make you believe.

if 90 million were poor before this regime, maybe 92 million are poor now.

Nigerians have always been poor especially since IBB.

Nigerians have been living below 1 dollar a day for 30 years.

80 percent of Nigerians have been living below the poverty line for 30 years.


do not make it a Buhari thing. We know!

like i said, people are still holding the money!

go to eateries, night clubs, nkwobi and isi ewu joìnts, first class hotels, international airports etc etc and see Nigerians "eating" and enjoying their money.

lest I forget, people buying cars and getting landed properties everywhere.

while you sit on your broke asssss wailing.

Is Seme the only land border? What about the vehicles coming in from the Jibia [katsina] border and others from the north? Were they also banned.

All policies aimed at crippling a particular set of 5%ers

The FG has realized that a lot of revenue is lost via import duty by banning the importation of vehicles through the land border (esp. Seme border). The inefficiency & corruption at the Nigerian ports is not good for business. Because of this, a lot of car dealers are not importing cars recently. Benin Republic is benefitting from the ineptitude of the Nigerian Customs.
