UPDATE: Customs To Distribute Seized Food Items To Nigerians

The Nigeria Customs Service (NCS) has revealed intentions to give away food goods that have been seized to Nigerians in light of the severe hardship that the country is now experiencing.

According to Bashir Adewale Adeniyi, Comptroller General of Customs, the food items will be given upon their certification as fit for human consumption.

Tuesday’s announcement from Customs National Public Relations Officer Abdullahi Maiwada saw Adeniyi reiterate his dedication to pushing President Bola Tinubu’s agenda for food security.

The statement, however, did not disclose when the planned distribution will commence.
