According to the Statement, the Port Harcourt Area Controller of the NIS, Comptroller M. B. Boyi, announced the revenue target, when Usman Imanm, Port Harcourt Zonal head of the EFCC, visited him.
The statements which says the NCS sought collaboration with the EFCC to assist it in realizing the 2020 revenue target handed to it by the Federal Government, quoted M. B. Boya as saying: “While the Federal Government gave the Service a revenue target of N1.5 trillion for 2020, the agency has a more ambitious projection of N2 trillion. Last year, government gave us a revenue target of N1 trillion, but we delivered N1.3 trillion. “This year, N1.5 trillion is the target.
