NCS to inspect auto assemblers’ operations
The Nigerian Customs Service (NCS) has concluded plans to carry out an inspection exercise of all automobile manufacturing and assembly plants currently operating in Nigeria.
The exercise, The Guardian learnt, might lead to the delisting of any licensed assembler that is not doing what it claims to have been doing.
According to the Director-General of the Manufacturers Association of Nigeria (MAN), Segun Ajayi-Kadir, licensed auto assemblers have been advised to get ready to receive the NCS inspection team and avoid being delisted and stripped of their Bonafide Assembler status.
To this end, the association requested concerned auto assemblers and manufacturers to immediately forward to MAN, their updated records to be forwarded to NCS.
The email from MAN read in part: “Member companies in this sub-sector are requested to update their records with the Branch where they are located. This is to enable MAN to collate the authentic lists of Bonafide Assemblers currently in operation and forward same to NCS for use on the inspection exercise and enable MAN to follow up on the exercise in the interest of our members.”
