Tinubu’s Directive to Customs on Returning Seized Food Items to Owners Amid Hardship

President Bola Tinubu has ordered the Nigeria Customs Service, NCS, to give back the food items they seized at the border communities to the rightful owners, with the requirement that the items should be sold in Nigerian markets.

The Controller-General of Customs, Adewale Adeniyi, disclosed this in Katsina on Saturday while meeting with people from border areas at Kongolam and Mai’Adua border stations.

He mentioned that Tinubu had made a decision to use his authority not based on legal guidelines, “but rather reflecting the deep sense of generosity he holds towards Nigeria.”

“In doing so, he has directed that those food items that were going out of the country that have been seized in various border areas should be returned to the owners on the condition that those goods would be sold in the Nigerian markets.

“So, we will be monitoring you to know if there is a violation of this. Those food items will be returned, and it is a directive that we will pass them back into the Nigerian markets,” Adeniyi said.
