The Federal Executive Council (FEC) on Wednesday approved N2.338 billion for purchase of operational vehicles for anti-smuggling task force and staff accommodation.

This was disclosed by the Minister of Finance, Kemi Adeosun, at the end of FEC meeting chaired by President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

According to her, the approvals were given based on two memos she presented on behalf of the Nigeria Customs Service (NCS).

She said N1.2 billion was approved for acquiring bedroom units at Lifecamp in Abuja for NCS and N1.128 billion for 50 operational vehicles for anti-smuggling task force.
