Kano Emir Urges Customs, Traders to Collaborate, Avoid Unnecessary Goods Impoundment

By Mustapha Salisu

His Highness the Emir of Kano, Alhaji Aminu Ado Bayero, has advocated for a more collaborative approach between the Nigeria Customs Service (NCS) and traders, urging them to refrain from impounding goods unless a clear violation of the law occurs.

The Emir expressed his satisfaction with the discontinuation of seizing goods from traders during a meeting with Zonal Coordinator Zone B of the NCS, ACG Ify Queen Ogbudu, at his palace on Wednesday.

In a statement issued by the Press Secretary to the Emir, Abubakar Balarabe Kofar Naisa, Emir Bayero highlighted the positive shift in the customs officials’ practices, formerly seizing goods unlawfully from various markets.

Emphasizing cooperation, he encouraged customs officials to engage with traders, raising awareness about approved goods for import to foster market development.

Zonal Coordinator ACG Ify Queen Ogbudu, responsible for Kano, Kaduna, Jigawa, and Katsina, visited the Emir to convey the President’s directive for the Commission to release food items to alleviate the economic challenges facing Nigeria.

In a separate event, His Majesty received a delegation led by Mr. Lee Zhong from China and the Provost of the National College of Agriculture in Kano State, Dr. Muhammad Yusha’u Gwaram, showcasing the Emir’s engagement on both national and international fronts at his palace.
