Nigerian Central Bank increased its rate of computing customs duties in seaports, marking the fourth boom in ten (10) days!


For a 2nd time, CBN Increases the proportion for calculating Importation charges in the Forex trading marketplaces and seaports. This rise is the fourth (4th) time in history that it is happening within ten (10) Days!

This action follows a call from the Sea Empowerment Research Centre to prevent consistent growth in customs responsibility assessment prices, which can bring about better import obligations for importers and producers.

Economist Eugene Nweke indicates investigating the impact of those regulations on Nigeria’s economic difficulty and poverty. The CBN’s leader, government officer, Dr. Muda Yusuf, believes bringing the exchange charges down will help reduce inflation.

Bisiriyu Lasisi Fanu, the Previous chairman of ANLCA- ‘The Association of Nigeria Licensed Customs Agents’ in his response criticized the Nigerian Customs Board (CBN) for adjusting excessive duty change rates, arguing it’s going to fuel inflation and cut income margins.

Fanu also highlighted the issue of importing items primarily based on previous trade costs ( exchange rates), stating that the CBN can’t generate the distinctiveness to clear items from the port.

The CBN’s raising the exchange fare to N1,413.62 means a forty-three percent (43%) boost from what it was in the past. This uncalled-for rise is bringing problems to the Nation to the extent that wholesalers and other representatives are crazy.


Some bodies unhappy about this geometric rise in importation charges are; ‘The Centre for the Promotion of Private Enterprise’ (CPPE). From their end, the nearly forty-three percent rise (42.5%) is overwhelming for organizations. They cautioned that it’d boost price increases and drain vulnerable sectors of the economy.

This change in foreign exchange proportion for charges and what one will pay for importing goods to (N1,413.62) per dollar, which is a 4.18% markup from N951, according to critics’ will humble every aspect of the economy.

Currently, in Nigeria, interested parties are expressing worries over the future outcome of these alterations that will lead to hyperinflation and problems for the naval, business, and shipping sectors.

Critics argue that the authorities must set the criteria for raising import duty to improve the economy, offer more empowerment for neighborhood manufacturers, and cope with inflation.

Many see the CBN’s action as brave, especially the Nigerian management since it redirects the economy from import dependence to more neighborhood production.

Nigeria’s authorities’ current rules on importation and responsibilities might also have unintended outcomes, potentially impacting the Igbo people and their enterprise practices. The authorities’ ‘fireplace’ brigade method is the effect of putting clueless officers in strategic posts. However, the goodwill of the Igbo humans is going down slowly.

The CBN will determine the ache factor, and if N1500 does not stiffen imports, the naira might be near N2,000 to a dollar. Nigeria’s economy is experiencing demanding situations of insecurity and non-existent power delivery. This factor is contributing to her dependency on imports. Thus, the Nation will still experience more issues as the authorities’ increase import duties as their priority while removing price regulation of crucial assets to mitigate the transition.
