West Africa Container Terminal Nigeria commends Customs over Onne scanner installation.
Written by News Room on February 14, 2022
The Managing Director of West Africa Container Terminal Nigeria (WACT), Naved Zafar, has commended the Nigeria Customs Service (NCS) for installing a new scanning machine at the Onne Port Complex, Rivers State.
According to reports, the scanner was acquired by the Federal Government in September 2021 and commissioned last Thursday by the Comptroller-General of Customs, Hameed Ali, who said it would facilitate trade and reduce the importation of illicit goods.
Zafar, at the commissioning ceremony alongside other dignitaries at the port, said the scanner would aid manifest verification, Customs tariff collection and identification of contraband.
He said WACT, which is the largest container terminal operator in the eastern ports, would offer necessary support to NCS to optimise the benefits of the scanning machine.
