The acting PRO, Joseph Attah in a statement Wednesday morning said the review followed the unnecessary tension generated as a result of misconception and misrepresentation of the Service planned motor duty payment.

"The leadership of the National Assembly and the Comptroller-General of Customs, Col. Hameed Ali (Rtd) met with a view to resolving the impasse. They both agreed that the proposed motor duty payment, though in line with the provision of Customs and Excise Management Act (CEMA) Cap C.45, LFN 2004 should be put on hold while the Senate Committee on Customs & Excise interfaces with the NCS for further discussions," the statement announced.

It said the payment of duty on vehicles or indeed any dutiable imported item remains a civic responsibility of every patriotic Nigerian, but the NCS Management has directed that the present exercise.

The Service expressed readiness to engage the Senate Committee on further discussions to bring them on board to understand the importance of the exercise to national security and economy.
