Customs strengthens ties with Benin Republic to facilitate t

The Nigeria Customs Service has reaffirmed its commitment to enhancing bilateral relations with its counterpart in the Republic of Benin to facilitate trade.

In pursuit of this objective, the Comptroller-General of the Nigeria Customs Service, Adewale Adeniyi, led a delegation to meet with the Director-General of the Customs Administration of the Republic of Benin.

According to a statement by Abdullahi Maiwada, the National Public Relations Officer of the NCS, the main agenda of the meeting was to explore ways to boost trade activities between the two countries.

The aim is to ensure smooth implementation of previously discussed recommendations between Nigeria and Benin in Cotonou.

Discussions in Cotonou primarily centered on enhancing collaboration in mutually beneficial areas and bolstering operational cooperation.

Adeniyi said, “The CG, during a visit to Cotonou in 2023, noted the progress being made in reducing clearance time and in the application of technology for operations at the port of Cotonou. He acknowledged the established framework for cooperation between the two nations’ respective customs administrations.

“This framework was established at a higher level with President Patrice Talon of Benin and President Bola Tinubu of Nigeria both expressing a desire to work together. It is upon this foundation that the customs of both countries are united in their efforts.’’
