The Federal Government has banned the importation of small generators popularly known as ‘I better pass my neighbour.’
Controller, Federation Operations Unit Zone A, Lagos of the Nigeria Customs Service (NCS), Mr Madugu Sanni Jubrin, made this known while speaking with newsmen in Lagos yesterday.
He said that the command confiscated 4,733 goods worth N52 million and arrested some suspected smugglers since he assumed duties one week ago.
According to him:
“The smaller generators have been banned by the Federal Government because it is causing air pollution and destruction of our lungs and breathing system. That is why they have banned it but people are still interested in smuggling them in, that is why we intercepted them”, he said.
