Don’t hoard food items, Customs CG tells traders


By Abiodun OBA


The Comptroller General of Customs, Adewale Adeniyi, has pleaded with Dawanu International Grain Market traders in Kano not to engage in hoarding food items.

Adeniyi emphasized that Customs would refrain from raiding their warehouses, highlighting the importance of dialogue and cooperation.

Addressing reporters during a walk visitation to the Gawanu market on Sunday, March 10, 2023, the Comptroller General stated, “We believe in dialoguing with you; we do not need to invade any market, not Gawanu, not any other market in Nigeria.

“However, we urge you not to hoard food items. We will have our intelligence monitoring our activities, reporting compliance to us.”

This statement reflects the Customs’ commitment to fostering cooperation and open communication with traders, encouraging compliance with regulations rather than resorting to forceful interventions.
