Nigeria Customs Server Problem Didn’t Stall Transactions

The Nigeria Customs Service over the weekend said its server problem did not cause any major delay in importers and freight forwarders transactions as earlier reported.

Speaking on the issue, Uche Ejesieme, Customs Public Relations Officer for Tincan Island Port in Lagos, described the scanner issue as one not under the service purview.

Ejesieme said Webb Fontaine and Interswitch were contracted to handle that aspect of the service operations.

At Apapa, Tincan Port, Ports Terminal Multiservices Limited (PTML), and Kirikiri Lighter Terminal (KLT) Commands of Customs, port users were seen working normally in line with the various COVID-19 prevention protocols and guidelines without complaints about server breakdown.

 

He added that slight hitches experienced in the course of processing transactions only resulted in minor delays as engineers working for the service providers were on ground to address the issue. Ejesieme also said alternative channels were provided to ensure that the brief hitch never stretched long. He confirmed that the NCS has more than one method of data transmission.

“Once in a while, as it’s possible with any human endeavor or arrangements, to experience slight challenges. Sometimes, it could be due to the weather condition for one or two hours, but the good thing about it is that engineers are on ground to quickly attend to any technical complaints identified at the CPC…”

They are like resident officers in our CPC always ready to swing into action to rectify technical issues whenever they are called upon.

“ It has not delayed transactions to the extent that jobs could not be exited. For instance in Tincan Port here, if the server is down in Port and Cargo Terminal, you can come to CPC to release the consignment. If you have issues in SCOA terminal, you can come to TICT to release.

“So we have multiple options to facilitate trade. We have never had reason to wait for days to release consignments. We have other platforms and alternatives we use in handling such issues,” he said.

Nkeiru Nwala , Customs PRO at Apapa Port who described the Nigeria Customs Server breakdowns as minor issues that were attended to within a short period.

Dr. Eugene Nweke a freight forwarder and immediate past National President of Association of Government Approved Freight Forwarders (NAGAFF) attributed the minor failure to weather conditions.

According to him, no system is perfect and issues associated with weather conditions are acts of God that shouldn’t be blamed on anyone.

Nweke said if the complaints were serious enough to disrupt transactions, freight forwarders and licensed customs agents would have protested at the ports.
