Border closure not targeted at Igbo importers – Customs

The Nigerian Customs Services (NCS) on Thursday in Aba, the commercial nerve of Abia State debunked rumours making rounds that the joint border security exercise codenamed “Exercise Swift Response” was targeted at importers and exporters of various goods from the Southeast using the land borders.

This is even as the NCS maintained that the exercise was meant not only to secure Nigeria but an economic policy to also improve the economy of the country.

The Public Relations Officer NCS; Deputy Comptroller of NCS, Joseph Attah, disclosed this when the Strategic Communication Sub-Committee held a stakeholders’ meeting with importers and exporters of goods in Aba over the closure of the country’s land borders with neighbouring countries who have decided to use Nigeria as a dumping ground.

Attah said that the sensitization became necessary because the Federal Government believes that Nigerians deserve to know and deserved to be sensitized, stressing that what is done is done in the interest of all Nigerians and Nigeria as a nation.
