The Association of Nigerian Licensed Customs Agents (ANLCA) now has a new electoral committee known as Association Electoral Committee (ASECO).

The association was inaugurated by the Council for the Regulation of Freight Forwarding in Nigeria (CRFFN) on Thursday in the association’s office at Amuwo Odoin, Lagos.
The CRFFN Chairman, Alhaji Tsanni Abubakar, inaugurated the Committee which is made up of Chief Alloy Anakwuru as the Chairman of the Committee.
Other members of the ASECO include Mr. Mustapha Yakub (Secretary), Mr. Samuel Obe, Elochukwu Obiora, Lekan Babalola and Tope Fatimehin as members.

Tsanni during the occasion advised members of the association to build upon the peace in the association, adding that only ANLCA members who are registered with CRFFN will be allowed to vote during the election.

According to him, “One important issue is that whoever will contest, vote or be in the Electoral Committee must be a registered member of CRFFN either as an individual or corporate body. I came today because I wanted to know whether the association has truly reconciled or not, because I still received some complaints from some members who say that they have still not settled.

“Let’s stay in peace because if care isn’t taken another fight might erupt. We have to standup and ensure that we maintain peace because some people benefitted from the crisis and they will want it to happen again. I encourage members of the association to be liberal and appreciate God for the resources they have been blessed with.”

The ANLCA Acting National President, Dr. Kayode Farinto on his part said that a lot of ANLCA leaders have attained a level where should be able to sort out their challenges at the ports easily, as against younger freight forwarders who suffer due to the ANLCA crisis.

He said, “A lot of us are Chairmen and CEOs; we can find a way to get things done at the ports. I thank God that we have been able to find a way to have peace. This peace is total and we should all forget about our selfish interest. This is a healing period because we have decided to swallow everything that has to do with our ego in the interest of our profession and the collective good of the sector. It’s time to start moving forward and this healing period should be time to rebuild ANLCA and have a new ANLCA.”

The Acting Registrar of the CRFFN, Mrs Chinyere Uromta and prominent members of the association attended the event.

It would be recalled that the five years crisis in ANLCA was settled about two weeks ago through the intervention of the CRFFN.

This was following the Annual General Meeting (AGM) sponsored by CRFFN during which gladiators from the two warring groups were practically coerced to embrace peace.
As part of the peace process, Alhaji Taiwo Mustapha on Thursday emerged the Chairman of ANLCA Board of Trustees (BOT), while Chief Ozor Chukwura and Chief Kingsley Offor emerged Vice Chairman and Secretary of the BOT, respectively.
Mustapha had said on the occasion, “In the interest of ANLCA, the industry, our businesses and families, I plead with everyone to allow peace to reign. It is high-time we see ourselves as one.”

“In the election that will come up, as BOT Chairman, I want to assure you that no money will exchange hands. What we are concerned about is merit. As long as you have the certificates you will have an opportunity to contest, it is pure on merit and competent”.
