Olomu insisted that the challenges of low trade influx and swings in transaction rates did not deter its resolve in ensuring that revenue is maximised.

He also gave a rundown of export activities, including the volume of crude oil lifted within the period of review.

The briefing also presented an opportunity for the customs to highlight some of its construction projects aimed at a better and quality service delivery to the nation.
