The Cross River State Command of the Nigeria Customs Service, NCS generated N5.8 billion in 2014, according to the Area Controller of Customs in charge of the Calabar Free Trade Zone, Cross River and Akwa Ibom States, Mr Oshomah Nicholas.

Speaking during a courtesy visit to the State Security Adviser, Mr Rekpene Bassey, the Area Controller said the command under the present Comptroller General was motivated to do even more.

He expressed appreciation for the cordial relationship that had existed between the command and the state government, urging that it be strengthened going forward.

“We would not have achieved this without the assistance of Cross River State government and we would be grateful if you would continue the same way you did with my predecessors,” he said.

State Security Adviser, Mr Rekpene Bassey, reassured the Command of the continuous support of the state government.

He said the state was large and the command needs to gear up to deal with the challenges of checking prohibited items, especially drugs and arms, coming in through the water and land borders.

He called on the Federal Government to continue to encourage the Service to do more especially as they generate so much revenue.
