The Tin-Can Island Port 2 Customs Command said it had generated N8.12 billion between January and December 2016. The Public Relations Officer of the command, Mr Godwin Andishu, gave the figure in a statement in Lagos.
Giving a breakdown of the figure, Andishu said N349.07 million was realised in January; N605.48 million in February; N245.15 million for March; while N461.87 million was recorded in April.
The command spokesman said that the highest revenue of N1.57 billion was realised in May; N661.33 million in June; N531.81 million in July, while N453.51 million was realised in August.
Andishu also said the command realised N835.94 million in September; N942.101million in October; N908.05 million in November; and N559.73 million in December. He described the total figure as impressive in spite of the low import activities at the ports, occasioned by foreign exchange scarcity.
