LADOL Hosts Nigeria Customs Staff College to Operational Tour

The Lagos Deep Offshore Logistics Company (LADOL) has received students of the Nigeria Customs Staff College to an operational study tour in it’s Free Zone.

The Managing Director of LADOL Dr. Amy Jadesimi said that the success of LADOL and the ability of the Zone to strategically support a wide range of industries is due to the Nigeria Export Processing Zone Authority (NEPZA) platform.

Jadesimi stressed that, “since the Zone was designated in 2006 NEPZA had provided an enabling environment, which we understand the Federal Government is now replicating across the country. 

According to her, LADOL, as is the case with all NEPZA Free Zones, operates within the ambit of established rules and regulations of the Authority.

NEPZA also brings other agencies into the Free Zone, including Nigerian Customs Service, Nigeria Ports Authority, Nigeria Immigration Service and other relevant government agencies.

In her words, “When Free Zones are established, each Free Zone has a gazette. So, there are gazetted rules and regulations. There is a LADOL Free Zone Gazette, but the Gazette is created by NEPZA, approved by them, and handed down to the zone.

“There is a very strict frame work in place and the Free Zone Management company is responsible for ensuring that the NEPZA rules and regulations as per the Gazette are adhered to in the Zone. There is also a NEPZA office in each Zone where the Management Company reports to NEPZA”, she iterated.

Dr. Amy added that as part of the regulations, all of the zone enterprises and the management company are restricted from having direct contact with any government agency.

“For the zone to interact with government agencies, we have to go through NEPZA. This means that NEPZA brings Cutoms into the zone and the management company is responsible for making sure that Customs is accommodated in the location directed.”

Assistant Manager NEPZA LADOL Free Zone, Vivian Sheriff Ighomaro, who made a presentation to the students explained that Free Zones in Nigeria are the modality nations are using today to drive rapid economic growth.

“A Free Trade Zone is an industrial area within a geographical location of a country for fiscal exceptions and other activities. Commercial export activities are encouraged in that area and it is a country within a country and the Customs activities in the Free Zones are based on NEPZA Law and the particular Zone’s regulations”

“A Free Zone is a specialised area usually in an enclave demacated where we have enabling business regulations and rules to ensure the drive for economic development and growth is achieved,” she said.

Commenting on the activities of NEPZA, Ighomaro emphasized it is a Federal Government Agency that was established by Act 63 of 1992, NEPZA  has the responsibility to license, promote, and establish Free Trade Zones across Nigeria.”

Speaking on the visit Capt. Abduraheem said  “It was a warm reception, a lot of enlightening, lectures and presentations were given and a lot of questions we had have all been answered. I am sure the students will find all the information given beneficial in their research work and of course in their careers as they go forward.”
