CRFFN, Agents Blame Customs For Border Closure

The Council for the Regulation of Freight Forwarding in Nigeria (CRFFN) and customs agents in the country attributed the decision of the federal government to shut Nigeria’s land borders to incompetence by the Nigeria Customs Service (NCS) in carrying out its statutory duties at the borders.

They stated this at a one-day interactive session tagged, “Federal Government Land Border Closure: Freight Forwarders Perspective,” organized by the CRFFN Governing Council Committee on Monitoring, Enforcement and Compliance held in Lagos. The CRFFN, however, appealed to the federal government to open land borders to legitimate goods.
