Furthermore, note that aside from the salary, Nigeria customs officers also benefited from allowances.

However, many are just attracted to the job, because of the huge salary attached to it, and not because of the job itself, which is why it’s not all customs officers that are eligible for the allowances.  The allowances cover.

  • House rent
  • Food
  • Hospitality
  • Transport
  • Clothing
  • House maintenance

The rent allowance is given, because the government understands that most of these officers will have to leave their comfort place, to work wherever they are being transferred to.

However, aside from the salary and allowances, Nigerian customs officers also make money from illegal practices, like collecting money from those who want to import goods into the country. Nigeria’s government has put a strict ban on this.
