President Muhammadu Buhari has approved the development of Electronic Based Customs known as E-Customs for the Nigeria Customs Service.
The Comptroller General of Customs, Colonel Hameed Ali, retired, disclosed this at the graduation of Senior Course 3 of Nigeria Customs Command and Staff College, Gwagwalada, Abuja.
Ali said the deployment of technology would go a long way in enhancing the activities of the service.
He explained that E-Customs would change the manner the Nigeria Customs Service operates.
According to him, when fully deployed, the entire processes including local administration, clearing of goods and services will be done electronically.
The customs boss also disclosed that the Nigeria Customs Service board had approved the change in name of the institution from Command and Staff College to Training and Doctrine Command.
