The Senate has accused the Nigeria Customs Services (NCS) and Nigerian Ports Authority (NPA) of inefficiency and negligence at the nation’s ports, which has allowed at least 228 vessels bearing goods to evade the payment of customs duties.

The Senate said corrupt practices at the ports continue to cause a substantial loss of much needed revenue to Nigeria.

It therefore directed its Committees on Customs, Excise and Tariff, and Marine Transport to investigate port regulations and practices of the regulators.
