The Nigerian Customs Service (NCS), on Friday, denied making any accusation of corruption in the implementation of waivers, a Federal Government policy.
This was contained in a statement signed by Mr Adewale Adeniyi, Public Relations Officer of Customs in Lagos State.
According to him, this was to correct the reports by some media organisations that the customs opposed the Minister of Finance, Mrs Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, , on the issue.
“Contrary to the impression created by the publications, no official of the customs had made any pronouncement or issued any document to any media house on the issue.
“We align ourselves with the industrial policy of the Federal Government being implemented by the Coordinating Minister for Economy (CME),’’ Adeniyi said.
Adeniyi said that the customs was aware of the efforts of the minister in transforming the economy of the country.
