Customs lifts ban on rice importation, import duty

The Federal Government, through the Nigeria Customs Service (NCS) has lifted restrictions on the importation of rice and import duty, reports ITRealms.

The spokesperson of the Nigeria Customs Service, Wale Adeniyi, affirmed this to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) quoted the Comptroller-General of NCS, Colonel Hameed Ali (rtd) as announcing the removed of the ban on importation of rice.

He also told NAN that the import duty payment at land borders has been reintroduced.
Ali said, imports through land borders by rice traders would attract the prevailing import duty of 10 per cent with 60 per cent levy.

“Over the years importation has been restricted to the seaports because border authorities have found it difficult to effectively monitor and control importation of rice,” NAN quoted him as saying.
