President Tinubu instructs Customs to release seized food items to owners

 

President Bola Tinubu has instructed the Nigeria Customs Service (NCS) to release food items confiscated at border communities to their rightful owners, with the condition that the items must be sold in Nigerian markets.

The Comptroller General of the Nigeria Customs Service, Adewale Adeniyi, disclosed this while meeting with people from border areas at Kongolam and Mai’Adua border stations on Saturday, March 9.

The Customs chief mentioned that President Tinubu had chosen to exercise his authority not according to legal regulations, “but rather reflecting the deep sense of generosity he holds towards Nigeria.”

“In doing so, he has directed that those food items that were going out of the country that have been seized in various border areas should be returned to the owners on the condition that those goods would be sold in the Nigerian markets

So, we will be monitoring you to know if there is a violation of this. Those food items will be returned, and it is a directive that we will pass them back into the Nigerian markets” he said
