Customs Agents Petition Buhari Over New Customs Bill by treesun: 7:30am On Jul 29, 2022
Customs agents under the aegis of the National Council of Managing Directors of Licensed Customs Agents, NCMDLCA, have petitioned President Muhammadu Buhari over the new Customs bill before the National Assembly for consideration, noting that the bill did not only conflict with other government agencies but will affect the nation’s international trade.

NCMDLCA, in the petition signed by its National President, Lucky Amiwero, noted that the bill, if allowed to sail through, will also seek for the creation of a Ministry of Customs, whose minister must be a retired Customs officer.

The Council also observed that should the  bill pass through legislation, it will empower the Service to take over the function of other sister government agencies.

According to the petition, “The Nigeria Customs Service bill is designed and personalised for the management of the  Nigeria Customs Service based on the removal of some power of the President and total removal of the Ministers and the overriding powers of other federal government agencies.


Globally, the title of the Act is structured by the content based on the application of international convention, treaties, protocol on Trade procedures, which is mostly titled as follows: Customs Act, Trade Act, Customs and Excise Act, Customs Management Act, and Customs and Excise management Act.

“In the draft bill, Nigeria Customs Service was unduly allocated with uncontrollable powers over the President and Commander-In-Chief of the Armed forces, the Ministers and other government agencies on policy making, regulation of the economy on trade and Fiscal policies and other matters, which negate the principle of global best practice on administration, control and management of Trade/Customs Act.”
The NCMDLCA therefore observed that the “Policy initiation and regulation of the economy by the instruments of trade are the preserve of the executive arm of the federal government as contained in the provision of section 148 of the constitution, which only allow the President, Vice and the Ministers on Foreign and Domestic policy directions.”

Stop petitioning Buhari, he will never get the petition. Don't worry yourself, someone Bandits threatened with kidnap and he was not aware, is it ordinary custom petition that he would be aware of

This is a double edged sword if the customs had people who have integrity instead of aligning with their pockets.

I just want to ask the Customs if actually they made their proposed anticipated income with the increase in clearing fees, because we know over 50% of importers have shut down business for now to get a clear picture of where the country is going..

Penny wise, pound foolish policies...

ASUU are still on strike , over a whopping ₦500 billion to ₦1trillion needed to pay lecturers and fully overhaul Universities

This Morrrons still want to create more Ministry with more money to be budgeted for overhead cost
