The Customs Area Controller, Ogun Command,Comptroller Sani Madugu, emphasizes the need for all Nigerians, espcially traders to comply with Federal Government fiscal policies on trade, as the Command will not relent in its anti-smuggling operations.
“It is pertinent to reiterate that Rice and Vehicles have come under restriction from being imported through the land borders, while frozen poultry products are completely prohibited into the country. On the other hand, Fish products are under regulated products in Nigeria with some specific guidelines which every fish importer must fulfill before he or she can embark on importation of such. These include license/permit from Federal Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development by importing company and such importation must be subjected to National Agency for Food Administration and Control (NAFDAC) inspection/certification among others”.
“Finally, let me seize this opportunity to reiterate my appeal to the traditional rulers and eminent personalities in the state to sensitize there wards on the ills of smuggling. We believe that, doing so will change the perception of many towards our operations and further highlight our service to our beloved nation. We are ready to partner with all stakeholders and all law abiding citizens in our resolve to collect maximum revenue for the betterment of all and to reduce smuggling to its barest minimum”… Compt. Madugu.

"They called Goodluck Jonathan, who gave you YouWIN and SURE-P, and PRESSID Scholarships clueless. So what do we call APC that gives you wheelbarrow? They said GEJ was tribalistic yet his NSA, CDS, IGP, CNS, CGP and minister of defense were from the North. So what do we say of President Muhammadu Buhari whose DG DSS is from his own hometown and whose Minister of Defense, Chief of Army Staff, Chief of Air Staff, NSA, IGP, CGP, CGI, CGP are all from his Northern Region? You see, no matter how far falsehood has travelled, it must eventually be overtaken by truth!"
