Renewed Hope: Nigerian Customs Service Takes New Decision as Nationwide Hardship Lingers

The Nigerian Customs Service (NCS) has revealed a plan to distribute seized food products across the country, according to a statement released by CSC Abdullahi Maiwada, the spokesperson for NCS, on Tuesday.

This initiative is part of a broader effort to mitigate the ongoing economic challenges and address critical food security issues, along with the rising costs of essential food items in Nigeria.

The NCS emphasized the importance of ensuring that these food items are safe for consumption before their distribution.

According to the statement “To alleviate the economic difficulties faced by Nigerians and enhance the availability of vital food items, the Nigeria Customs Service is set to oversee the direct release of food items confiscated by the Federal Government.

These items will undergo thorough certification by appropriate agencies to guarantee they are suitable for consumption and then distributed fairly across the country.”

“This distribution strategy aims to reach individuals most in need through an equitable system, with the NCS vowing to conduct the process with transparency, fairness, and a focus on public safety. “We are committed to managing this initiative carefully to make sure the benefits are delivered to those who need them the most,” Maiwada added.
