The Comptroller Olusola Alade administration is not leaving any stone unturned in ensuring that the Ogun 2 Command’s revenue target for the year is achieved and even surpassed.
He has conveniently posted a half year financial feat of N12,830,493,630.06, representing January to June.

When juxtaposed with that of same period of last year which stood at N8,505,038,818.30 generated between January and June 2023, representing a differential of N4,326,454,811.76 which is a 51 percent improvement.
Alade described revenue generation as the Command’s core mandate apart from trade facilitation and protection of National security.

This attainment is evidence of the diligence, professionalism and commitment of our officers and men who worked tirelessly to ensure that we met and exceeded the revenue targets given to our command. It is also indicative of our steadfast commitment to the growth of our National economy.

In addition, our activities in the free trade zones have improved and these brought greater success which is evident in our monthly revenue collections from April to June. In April we raked in three billion, four hundred and eighty-six million, nine hundred and sixty-one thousand, one hundred eighty-six-naira, seventy-one kobo (N 3,486,961,186.71) in May we made two billion, eight hundred and one million, eight hundred and thirty-three thousand, seven hundred and forty kobo. (N2,801,833,739.40) while in June our revenue collection leaped to three billion, six hundred and sixty-four million, seven hundred and seventy-six thousand, four hundred and ninety-nine-naira, seven kobo (N3,664,776,499.07).

The command will continue to put in place necessary measures to improve on the collections with adequate support from other units of the service. We shall maintain success through synergy and continued dialogue, by engaging and sensitizing the local and trader communities while discharging our statutory responsibilities of enforcing compliance with government fiscal policies.

It is important to stress that the success recorded in our revenue drive in the last three (3) months can be attributed to the following:

Good motivation from the Management of the Service which has boosted the morale of officers and kept them in high spirits at all times.

Continuous deployment of intelligence and reconnaissance by our monitoring unit which led to the discovery of some factories which we have now put under excise control. These factories which are now under different stages of registration include:

Sygen pharmaceutical Limited

Sprout and Kingsberg Nigeria Limited

Southern Nigeria Limited

Abraham & Sarah Beverages Nigeria Limited

Oyinloye Honey Double Crown

Oluyemi Akintan Nigeria Enterprises

Lorna Nigeria Limited

Makindez Multi-business Ventures

Digo Herbal Remedy Limited

Broadway Food & Beverages Limited
Beezun Flavoured Drinks.
Nellyvan Global Limited (Bonded terminal)
All the eleven (11) factories and one (1) bonded terminal, were discovered by the command under the months of my assumption of office, as Customs Area Controller, Ogun ll Command.
At this point, I must commend the dedication of my officers and men, and the cooperation of other units especially Customs Intelligence Unit and Customs Police Unit in their prompt actions. It has really contributed to the success of the command.
Our achievement is in line with the policy drive of the Comptroller General of Customs Bashir Adewale Adeniyi (MFR) who is operating under the principle of consolidation, collaboration and innovation. His visionary leadership and enabling support have been crucial in heightening our potentialities and has driven these spectacular results.
In conclusion, let me thank and further solicit the cooperation of various factories on timely payment of appropriate Excise Duty and other charges payable. We appreciate the traders that are doing well and urge them to do more and also we encourage the newly discovered factories to be rest assured that the Command remains faithful in its commitment to fulfilling our mandate under the Nigerian Customs Service Act (NCS, Act 2023).
My sincere appreciation goes to the CGC and Nigeria Customs Service Management for creating the enabling environment for our achievements.
May I at this point once again appreciate our critical stakeholders, for their continuous collaborative efforts and synergy with the Command in carrying out our statutory mandate in the state.
Thank you for listening. God bless you and the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
