Lack Of Scanners At Nigerian Ports Is Aiding Insecurity – House Of Reps

Nigeria’s House of Representatives has come out to say that the lack of scanners at the several ports is comprising Nigeria’s security.

The Chairman, House Technical Committee on Customs and Excise, Hon. Leke Abejide recently revealed this when he led other members of the committee on the oversight of Customs formations in Zone C of the Nigeria Customs Service with headquarters in Port Harcourt.

According to him, the poor development has actually exposed Nigeria to possible importation of illegal arms and ammunition into the country, and that cannot be condoned.

He added that the abandonment of scanners purchased for the Customs over the years, after removing them from the companies that installed and giving them to another company which lacked the technical capacity to handle the equipment, is quite laughable.

Muhammadu Buhari GCFR (born 17 December 1942) is a Nigerian politician currently serving as the President of Nigeria, in office since 2015. He is a retired major general in the Nigerian Army and previously served as the nation’s head of state from 31 December 1983 to 27 August 1985, after taking power in a military coup d’Γ©tat. The term Buharism is ascribed to the Buhari military government.

In December 2014, he emerged as the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress for the March 2015 general elections. Buhari won the election, defeating the incumbent President Goodluck Jonathan.

In February 2019, Buhari was re-elected President, defeating his closest rival Atiku Abubakar by over 3 million votes.
