Customs Lift Ban On Importation Of Rice At Border Stations

The Comptroller-General of Customs, Col. Hameed Ali (rtd), has ordered the removal of rice from the import restriction list.
Ali also re-introduced the payment of import duty on all land borders across the federation.





Shedding more light on the new development, the customs spokesman, Mr Wale Adeniyi, in a statement said “Over the years importation has been restricted to the seaports because border authorities have found it difficult to effectively monitor and control importation of rice.

“When the decision to ban it (rice) was taken it was not an effective measure because smuggling of the product thrives with people using different means of conveyance including small trucks, bicycles and even animals – putting them on donkeys and some actually carry it on their heads.

“These new measures will be for customs to recognise their anti-smuggling operations in the border areas and ensure that all those importers through the borders bring their rice through approved routes and pay their extant duty.”
Recently, Hameed Ali said 99 per cent of rice smuggled through the land borders are not fit for human consumption.

  14. More like it wasn't a good idea to ban it because price of rice now skyrocketed. I just pray rice price falls down to its original 7500 or 10000 at most. It's been really difficult

    1. Coming down to that price seems like something that won't happen. Nothing goes up in Nigeria and come down. Besides they wills till complain of the high rate of dollar and the cost accumulated from bringing it like import duty and what not
