The Nigeria Customs Service said it was directed by the Minister of Economy and Coordinating Minister of Finance, Mr Wale Edun, to suspend the 25 per cent penalty on improperly imported vehicles.

The service’s National Public Relations Officer of the service, Abdullahi Maiwada, announced this in a statement on Friday.

PUNCH Online reports that the Federal Government recently announced a 90-day window to regularise import duties on specific categories of vehicles.

The service, while announcing the development, said an import duty and a 25 per cent penalty shall be paid in tandem with the import guidelines, procedures, and documentation requirements for used vehicles under the Destination Inspection Scheme in Nigeria (2013) and the NCS Act 2023.

However, giving an update on the development, Maiwada added that the service has also been directed to be initiated within three months, a window for the regularisation of import duties on specific categories of vehicles.
