The Nigeria Customs Service has announced the suspension of its new policy on payment of import duties on vehicles.
Customs gave car owners one month to pay duties for their vehicles, vowing to prosecute defaulters.
The plan sparked controversy as many Nigerians complained about paying for cars that had already found their ways into the country.
The Customs Service initially defied a Senate demand the policy be put on hold, resulting in a standoff between both sides.
But a statement released today by Customs spokesperson, Joseph Attach, said the plan has been “put on hold” after a meeting between Customs and the leadership of the National Assembly.
