The Murtala Muhammed Airport Command of the Nigeria Customs Service, NCS, has announced that it made N22.5 billion between January and July.
Its Comptroller,Folorunso Adegoke, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Tuesday, August 18, in Lagos that the highest revenue figure of N5.2 billion was recorded in July.
NAN reports that the revenue was an improvement over the N18 billion recorded in the corresponding period of 2014.
He said:“From January 1, 2014 to July 2015, the figure has been showing a steady rise apart from the drop that we had during the election period. “This was because a lot of people thought Nigeria was going to divide and there would not be any Nigeria after the election but thank God, we are still in together.
“Apart from that time, our revenue has been going up,’’ Adegoke said.
He noted that the July revenue was the highest since the inception of the command.
