Customs puts on hold motor duty payment

The Nigerian Customs Service has put on hold the motor duty payment. This decision was made following a closed door meeting between the director general of NCS Hammed Ali (Rtd) and the leadership of the national assembly led by senate president Dr. Bukola Saraki on Tuesday evening in Abuja.
The motor duty payment which is in line with the provision of Customs and Excise Management Act (CEMA) Cap C.45, LFN 2004 will be put on hold while the Senate Committee on Customs and Excise will meet with the agency for further discussions.
“While payment of duty on vehicles or indeed any dutiable imported item remains a civic responsibility of every patriotic Nigerian, NCS Management has directed that the exercise be put on hold while expressing readiness to engage the Senate Committee on further discussions to bring them on board to understand the importance of the exercise to national security and economy,” the acting PRO of the agency, Joseph Attah said in a Facebook post this morning.
The Customs DG was scheduled to meet with the senate today by 10:30 AM this morning prior to this morning’s statement.
