Nigeria Customs Service website review

Nigeria Customs Service website
Nigeria Customs Service website

I came across the Nigeria Customs Service website a few weeks ago and I think it is worth mentioning as I consider it the most professional website of a Nigerian government agency. It is commonplace to see websites of Nigerian government agencies shabbily done. The official portal of the Federal Government of Nigeria is a mess today. Since that of the  this is well done, it deserves a mention. I give it an appraisal for several reasons:

  1. Domain Name: It uses the perfect domain name which is
    This not only shows at first glance that it is a Nigerian government agency website, it also short and memorable.
  2. Look, feel and layout: Though the website width does not fit perfectly into a 800×600 pixels computer screen, its font face, font sizes, font colours, are simple and clean.
  3. Navigation & Links: Not only are the navigation links well-arranged, the drop-down menu at the top makes accessing every web page easy and straight-forward. Although the Site Map is not functional, the Site Index gives an alphabetical overview of the key pages in the website.

Not surprisingly, the website is developed by a Swiss-based company Webb Fontaine Holding S.A based in Geneva.

  1. It is good to read that the Nigeria Customs have a website design in line with other government agencies in the Western world. I think they need to move a step forward in the service they provide to the public in the areas of clearings good in our ports. They need to emulate from the develop countries on good clearance. The bureaucracy involved in clearing good in our ports is a disgrace. If you want to know more please get a good Journalist to investigate and let the public read how our system works from when goods arrives in our ports to when it gets to the customers house or warehouse.

  2. Hi Mr. Ajao,$

    Thanks so very much for appreciating our Service’s website. It is good that we have someone out there giving credit to a good project. We, as officers of the Service, are being constantly informed, through it, about government fiscal policy measures/issues and the public could get all that is necessary to guide their trading conducts and/or look for their right.

    We will also appreciate criticisms on content and construction please.

  3. It’s a good thing they have a website, and it passes the standard mark, but it’s sad that they had to contract it out to other countries and yet it could have been done here in Nigeria

  4. Does anyone know how to find out when the Nigerian Customs Agency holds auctions or what they have coming up for auction? I’m looking for a very specific reason, but can’t find anything or get anyone from customs to return emails. Any help would be appreciated. It would be a great service for them to put notices of auctions on their website, which I also think is very good…

  5. Nigeria custom website is commended at least for making it possible and easy for the public to access the organization’s activities however it is never easy to get some information when needed. So, all the activities of the org should be allowed to flow for all. Thanks.

  6. I want to no when the Nigerian Customs will start recruiting their offices either this year or next and what are the specific area they like.

  7. when are you going to start the new recruitment for the year 2009 because i love the nigeria custom and thier mode of operation so iwant to know when the new recrutment for year 2009 will start

  8. Nigeria Customs have come a long way, but thier Site needs to carry updates from the Headquarters on daily basis. The Public Relations Dept should be updating the public on daily basis so that Importers and other Port Users will be abreast of changes in Govt Policies.
