Lagos Chamber Of Commerce & Industry Commends FG For Removal Of Customs Checkpoints From Highways

The Lagos Chamber of Commerce and Industry (LCCI) says the removal of customs checkpoints from highways was a reflection of the Federal Government’s commitment to promoting ease of doing business. The Director-General of LCCI, Mr Muda Yusuf, made the remark in a statement made available to newsmen in Lagos.

According to him, the directive will reduce extortion and disruptive activities to domestic trade, and end needless embarrassment to motorists for import duty receipts and revaluation of duty payments.

“The development is a clear demonstration of the responsiveness of the present administration to complaints of the Private Sector on business environment issues,” he said.

The director-general also called for an effective implementation framework for the policy geared toward improving the ease of doing business and restoring order in the way public institutions discharge their responsibilities.

He said that LCCI would collaborate with other private sector bodies to monitor and track implementation of the directive.

Yusuf noted that domestic trade generates the largest number of jobs in the economy, next to agriculture and also contributes 16 per cent of the country’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP).
