The Nigeria Customs Service is planning to collaborate with the National Inland Waterways Authority to construct modern jetties.

This was according to the NCS Comptroller General, Adewale Adeniyi, who spoke recently in Lagos during the 2024 International Customs Day celebration themed ‘Customs Engaging Traditional and New Partners with Purpose’.

He said the NCS was working on various collaborations with sister agencies to address the issue of port congestion and to ensure the ports are more efficient.

The CGC said, “We have reasons for us to collaborate with all these traditional partners. Some new partners are very important for us. Take, for example, the National Inland Waterways Authority, we need a partnership with them.

“We need to build modern jetties and we need to partner with them to get a very good and strategic location where we can site our jetties and establish a very effective basis for our marine unit.”

 Adeniyi added that the NCS would ensure that the momentum of the collaboration was sustained.
