The Nigerian Customs Service has given April 12, 2017 as deadline for owners of all vehicles within the Country whose customs duty have not been paid, to do so.
The Comptroller-General of Customs, (CGC) Hameed Ibrahim Ali, a retired army colonel gave the approval grace period of one month, between March 13 to April 12, 2017 for all affected members of the public, clearing agents and corporate institutions and government to comply with the directive.
Furthermore, a statement issued by Acting Public Relations Officer, Joseph Attah explained that “For the avoidance of doubt, all private car owners who are not sure of the authenticity of their vehicles customs documents can also approach the Zonal Offices to verify with a view to complying with the provision of the law”.
Consequently, all motor dealers and private owners of such vehicles are advised to visit the nearest Customs Zonal Office to pay the appropriate Customs Duty on them.
The four Zonal Offices of the Nigeria Customs Service are: Zone A Headquarters on Harvey Road, Yaba, Lagos; Zone B Headquarters, Kabala Doki, Kaduna; Zone C Headquarters, Nigeria Ports Authority, Port Harcourt and Zone D Headquarters, Yelwa Tudu Road, Bauchi State.
The CGC therefore calls on all persons in possession of such vehicles to take advantage of the grace period to pay appropriate duties on them, as there will be an aggressive anti-smuggling operation to seize as well as prosecute owners of such smuggled vehicles after the expiration of the deadline.
