Nigeria Customs Intercept Containers Of Jollof Rice, Egusi Soup & Porridge (PICS) |


The Tin-Can Island Command of the Nigeria Customs Service (NCS) has intercepted a 20ft container of ‘READY TO EAT FOODS’ like Egusi Soup, Jollof Rice, Ogbono, Yam Porridge and Beans Porridge imported from India.

The Customs Area Controller, Comptroller Bashar Yusuf, disclosed this in a statement made available to newsmen on Monday in Lagos by the Public Relations Officer of the Command, Mr Uche Ejesieme.

Yusuf spoke with stakeholders at the SDV/SCOA Terminal while handing over the container of imported prepared foods to officials of the National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC).

The controller described the scenario as an ‘aberration’, considering the fact that government granted zero duty for the importation of machinery for the packaging of agricultural products.

“Why should indigenous menu be imported into the country at a time when investors are much sought after to boost local industries,’’ the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) quotes Yusuf as saying.
