The Nigerian government announced Tuesday that Nigerian importers would soon be free to legally import their goods from the ports in Cotonou, Benin Republic.
“By this agreement, what it means is that Nigerian importers willing to use the ports in Cotonou can have their goods cleared in those ports because there would be an opportunity for them to pay duties on goods that are liable for payment of duties.
Speaking on Tuesday, Mr Adeniyi said the decision to set up a clearing point for Nigeria-bound goods was one of the highlights of the two-day working visit of the Director-General of Customs, Republic of Benin, to Nigeria.
“Nigeria Customs Service is currently developing plans to incorporate border communities as a priority in its Corporate Social Responsibility Strategy. We are also promoting professionalism and tax compliance among our customs officers.
“Over the last 24 hours, we have been able to leverage our shared commitment to meaningful cooperation to consider and make progress on issues like managing the transit of goods through the territories, the use of our ports by importers of the countries and the issue of prohibited goods.
