Customs refute ignoring directives on textiles

The Nigeria Customs Service (NCS) has refuted the charges of having ignored an order removing the ban on textile materials.

NCS by way of a statement by the Finance Minister, Olusegun Agagu claimed that, it has learnt regarding some misleading information regarding the new policy being publicized in media. The statement even claimed that there is no element of truth in this allegation.

It was clarified in the statement that, the NCS is not involved in policy formulation, but is concerned only with its implementation, when directed to do so. Further it stated that, though the Federal Government has announced a new policy on textiles and other goods, but no official circular on this has been forwarded to the NCS , which would allow the Comptroller-General of Customs (CGC) to start implementing the same.

It was even stated for the sake of clarification that the CGC, Management Team members and all the Customs officials are in favour of this development, as not only it will help them to curb the menace of illegal importation, but would also boost the revenue collection.

Thus, it is not proper to claim that the CGC is deferring implementation of the policy which is going to prove beneficial to the Service itself.

Former President Olusegun Obasanjo, in consideration of the request furthered by the domestic producers and suppliers, imposed a ban on imports of textile and other items, including textiles, leather shoes, plastic, fabrics and furniture, as back as in 2004.
