Nigeria Port Authority, Tin Can Island Lagos

The Tin-Can Island Port 2, Customs Command, Ijora on Thursday said it generated over N908 million for the month of November.

The command, in a release made available to journalists in Lagos said the figure was N34 million lower than the N942 million revenue recorded in October.

Adeola Rasheed, the command`s Assistant Public Relations Officer who signed the release, said the figure was still impressive in view of low importation activities at the ports due to forex scarcity.

Mr. Rasheed said the November figure brought the total revenue recorded by the command in the last 11 months to N7.6 billion.

He said the command had improved its fortunes in the last one year due to the various reforms implemented by the Controller, Abdulkadir Dalhatu.

Mr. Rasheed mentioned the reforms to include training and retraining of personnel, promotion of ICT use to enhance efficiency and accountability and rebranding of the command from Lilypond to Tin-Can Island 2.

He said tthe controller had put in place other mechanisms to attract cargoes to the command as a strategy to further improve the revenue profile of the command.
