Nigeria Customs Service bans rice importation through land borders  


Nigeria Customs Service has announced the re-introduction of ban on importation of rice through land borders across the country. The Comptroller-General of Customs, Hameed Ali, made the announcement at a review meeting with Comptrollers of Border Commands and Federal Operation Units in Abuja.

According to Ali, the Service observed that the revenue from rice imports through the land borders hardly matched the volume of rice arriving in neighbouring ports. ‎

He said the presidency had given approval for the reversal of the ban put in place in October 2015 which allowed rice imports through land borders, once appropriate duty and charges were paid.
