Furthermore, he said the revenue profile of the command increased by 68percent in 2021, compared to N518.4billion collected in 2020.
He also said the Apapa command was ready to achieve the 2022 revenue target.
“For us in Apapa Area Command, we have already fastened our seat towards the realization of this revenue target.
Speaking on the revenue collected for 2021, Malanta said despite COVID-19, gridlock, and other challenges, they were able to overshoot their target.
“This clearly shows that the revenue profile of the command has significantly increased by about 68% when compared with the collection of N518.4 billion in the year 2020.”
