The Nigeria Customs Service says the revenue recorded from January to June 2017 increased by N101 billion from the revenue generated in the same period in 2016.

The agency, which recorded N898 billion in revenues for 2016, lowered its target to N772 billion for 2017, but its current momentum shows it may record the highest revenue in its history by the end of 2017.

In a statement signed by Joseph Attah, public relations officer, the agency said it is determined to raise its 2017 revenue target of N772 billion.

“The service collected a total sum of N486.7 billion between January to June 2017 as against N385.7 billion collected in the same period last year,” the statement released on Thursday read.
