In an ongoing effort to enhance security at ports nationwide, Adegboyega Oyetola, the Minister of Marine and Blue Economy, on Thursday convened a meeting in Abuja with the Acting Comptroller-General of the Nigeria Customs Service, NCS, Bashir Adewale Adeniyi.
Oyetola, who welcomed the NCS boss to his office, emphasized that their collaborative efforts would optimize efficiency, boost productivity, and augment revenue generation.
It’s worth noting that the Minister had previously expressed his Ministry’s eagerness to partner with the NCS to alleviate port congestion and improve operational efficiency. This declaration was made during his visits to various departments and agencies under his Ministry in Lagos.
Oyetola highlighted that the meeting with the NCS leader was a crucial step in securing the cooperation and support of the Service in pursuit of their commitment to optimizing efficiency and ensuring port security.
“In furtherance of our commitment to optimising efficiency and ensuring adequate security at our ports, we met with the acting Comptroller-General of the Nigeria Customs Service, NCS, Bashir Adewale Adeniyi, to secure the cooperation and support of the Service in this crucial endeavour,” Oyetola said.
