Uche Elendu

By Jennifer Okundia

33 year old Nollywood actress and business woman Uche Elendu called out the Nigerian Comptroller General of Customs to look into the duties placed on Importation.

The brand influencer and actor decried the frustration entrepreneurs have to go through just to clear their goods at the hands of custom officers who would stop at nothing to extort individuals.

She further stated that charges placed on items shouldn’t exceed the cost of sales and urged the federal government to come to their aid to avoid Nigerians going into fraud to earn a living
