The Port Terminal Multiservices Limited (PTML) Command of Nigeria Customs Service has collected a total N234,340,789,594 as revenue as at November 30,2023 thereby surpassing the November 2022 collection of N213,405,461,873 by N20,935,327,721 which represents a 9.8 percent increase.

Comptroller Saidu Abba Yusuf, Customs Area Controller(CAC) of the Command, who discolosed this shortly after a reception ceremony for ‘MV Great Lagos, a Grimaldi owned Roll on Roll off(RoRo) vessel, expressed optimism in meeting the 2023 total revenue target of the command.

The Public Relations Officer of the Command Chief Superintendent of Customs(CSC),Mohammad Yakubu ,on a statement on Monday,noted that the CAC said PTML officers are fully deployed to work optimally in line with the assurances they gave to the Comptroller General of Customs, Bashir Adewale Adeniyi, MFR, when he visited the command two months ago.

He restated that compliance and transparency are keys to faster cargo clearance at all times as customs officers are fully mobilised to conduct joint examination from 9am to 4pm with sister government agencies, to avoid the delays associated with seperate examinations by the individual agencies.

According to him, “The command is a model in many areas including a record breaking three hour RoRo cargo clearance time where there is hundred percent compliance. He added that this time release feat is sustainable and has contributed to the achievement of adequate terminal space devoid of congestion in PTML.”he said.

The Controller added that,” The visit of ‘MV Great Lagos’ ,a ship with space to carry 2500 vehicles and 2000 containers , 2500 general cargo and equipments, shows the capacity of the command to receive and process increased number of imported cargoes” he said.
