The Comptroller-General of Customs, Col. Hameed Ibrahim Ali (rtd) has approved a grace period of one month, between Monday,  March 13 to Wednesday April 12, 2017 for owners of all vehicles within the Country whose customs duty has not been paid, to do so.
Ali in a statement on Thursday by the Public Relations Officer, Nigerian Customs Service  (NSC), Joseph Attah,  advised all vehicle owners and dealers to pay their Customs Duties before deadline.
Consequently, he said, all motor dealers and private owners of such vehicles are advised to visit the nearest Customs Zonal Office to pay the appropriate Customs Duty on them.
The Customs boss listed  four Zonal Offices of the Nigeria Customs Service to include: Zone A Headquarters, No. 1 Harvey Road, Yaba, Lagos; Zone B Headquarters, Kabala Doki, Kaduna; Zone C Headquarters, Nigeria Ports Authority, Port Harcourt and Zone D Headquarters, Yelwa Tudu Road, Bauchi State.
Against this backdrop, Ali called on “all persons in possession of such vehicles to take advantage of the grace period to pay appropriate duties on them, as there will be an aggressive anti-smuggling operation to seize as well as prosecute owners of such smuggled vehicles after the deadline of Wednesday  April 12, 2017”.
“For the avoidance of doubt, all private car owners who are not sure of the authenticity of their vehicles customs documents can also approach the Zonal Offices to verify with a view to complying with the provision of the law”.
