Customs re-imposes ban on rice importation

ricepix-newABUJA— The Nigeria Customs Service has re-introduced the restriction order on importation of rice through land borders across the country. Comptroller-General of Customs, Col. Hameed Ali (retd), gave the approval for the reversal of an earlier policy in October 2015 which allowed rice imports through the land borders, once appropriate duty and charges were paid. At a review session held with Comptrollers of Border Commands and Federal Operation Units in Abuja, yesterday, the service noted that dwindling revenue from rice imports through the land borders did not match the volume of rice landed in ports of neighbouring countries. The Customs in a statement by Wale Adeniyi, Public Relations Officer, said: “Rather, reports from border commands indicated an upsurge in the tempo of rice smuggling. Implementation of the restriction order got off to a smooth start, with a high level of compliance in October 2015. “However, revenue started dwindling from January 2016, with importers blaming access to forex as major impediments. “During the five-month period when the importation was allowed, October 2015 to March 17, 2016, a total of 24.992 metric tons of rice valued at N2,335,131,093  were imported through the land borders.” “During the period, total revenue generated amounted to N1,685,112,810, which is considerably lower than the revenue projected to be generated with the removal of import restrictions. “However, an upsurge in the number of the seizures has been reported across the land borders since January 2016. ‘’In the first two months of the 2016, a total of 9,238 bags were seized, with Duty Paid Value of   N64,666,000 made by the Customs anti-smuggling patrol teams of   Federal operations and border commands. The Comptroller-General of Customs noted that his officers and men could not be totally exonerated from the abuse associated with the implementation of the order on rice, saying his office had been inundated with reports of collusion between them and rice importers.

Anti-Saraki Senators back down, rally round embattled Senate President

Some All Progressives Congress senators who opposed the election of Bukola Saraki as Senate President, held a rare meeting Tuesday with Mr. Saraki’s key supporters from the same party, casting aside differences that for months polarised the ruling party’s senate caucus.
The meeting between the anti-Saraki group’s so-called Unity Forum and pro-Saraki’s Like Minds, had in attendance 10 senators – five from each of the two camps. It took place at the Asokoro residence of Aliyu Wammako, a former Sokoto State governor.
Mr. Wamakko confirmed to PREMIUM TIMES that the talks held.
The two sides had for months opposed the other, with some members of Unity Group pushing for Mr. Saraki’s removal.
The two groups emerged in the run up to the election of the Senate’s principal officers.
Mr. Saraki won the top seat in defiance of his party, APC’s decision to support his challenger, Ahmed Lawan.
Unity Forum’s most outspoken member, Kabiru Marafa, recently called for Mr. Saraki’s resignation in view of the senate president’s ongoing trial for alleged false declaration of assets.
Tuesday’s meeting had in attendance Mr. Lawan, Mr. Marafa, Gbenga Ashafa, and Suleiman Hukunyi as part of the group’s team.
One the other side, the Like Minds were represented by Danjuma Goje, Mr. Wammako, Sani Yerima, Kabiru Gaya and Adamu Aliero.
Speaking exclusively to PREMIUM TIMES at the end of the meeting which ended around 6.50 PM, Mr. Wammako said the meeting was held to end the crisis that hit the APC caucus following Mr. Saraki’s emergence as senate president.
He said it was high time the Senators belonging to the ruling party agreed to work together in the interest of Nigeria and to support President Muhammadu Buhari.
“Effectively the meeting has brought an end to crisis in the Senate between APC Senators who now support the Senate President, Bukola Saraki,” Mr. Wamako said.
This development came ahead of Mr. Saraki’s day at the Code of Conduct Tribunal on Thursday when the tribunal is expected to rule on his motion for the dismissal of the case against him on grounds of procedural error.
Another Senator, a member of the Unity Forum, who attended the meeting but asked that his identity be protected, said the meeting had three outcomes and that both sides agreed “to have a united APC caucus”.
The Senator said the first outcome was a decision that the composition of Senate committees be reviewed to conform with the Standing Rules of the Senate.
He said an upward review of the number of the committees must follow due process as prescribed by Section 60 of the Senate Rules.
The second point, he said, was that committees should also be reconstituted to “favour APC Senators”.
He said it was finally agreed that the APC caucus henceforth be “loyal to our party and be committed to its objectives”.
“The number three point is the supremacy of our party, loyalty to our leaders and support for President Muhammadu Buhari,” he said.
He said the “the meeting was held in the interest our party and Nigeria”.
Asked if the meeting was held to settle the longstanding Saraki row, he said, “It is beyond Saraki”. But he added that “there is no crisis between us again”.
“This man (Saraki) is in court and anything can happen.
“So APC Senators must come together and unite; otherwise, if anything happens to Saraki in the court PDP Senators who are very united may take over the Senate.
“And that would be a very great disservice to our party, the President and Nigerians who voted for change.
“So, we are now uniting like PDP Senators and are settling our differences,” the Senator said.
