*As Ali listened to public outcry
By Silas Onuoha
Sequel to recent Customs/Stakeholders town hall meeting held in Lagos on VIN-Valuation, the Comptroller General Of Customs having listened to public outcry, has graciously approved one (1) month window to enable clearing the backlog of vehicles held up in the ports as a result of strike action.
According to DC TIMI BOMODI
Custom National PRO,
uniform application of rebates will be used for all vehicles using correct values for assessment during the exercise.
“For the avoidance of doubt, the VIN-Valuation protocol is still in operation as reviews and updates are being captured in our systems to reflect the genuine concerns of stakeholders.
As a responsive and responsible agency, Nigeria Customs Service will sustain it’s consultations with stakeholders in line with Article 2 of WTO Trade Facilitation Agreement for a smoother Customs Stakeholders relationship”.
