The Association of Nigerian Licensed Customs Agents (ANLCA) has revealed its intention to contest in the upcoming governing council elections of the Council for the Regulation of Freight Forwarding in Nigeria (CRFFN) and withdrawn its court case against the Council.
The Association made this known in a press release after a general joint meeting of the NECOM, BOT, Chapters Executives, Zonal officers and Customs Licensed Agencies MD/CEOs which held on Tuesday, last week at the National secretariat of ANLCA.
The meeting was called by ANLCA’s National President, Iju Tony Nwabunike to brief members on the outcome of the mandate he got unanimously from members a fortnight ago, to seek political solution to the onerous eligibility conditions rolled out by CRFFN for the elections into the governing council.
The resolutions from the meeting which was well attended by ANLCA members from all over the country include:
1- ANLCA will contest the CRFFN elections into the Governing Council which was postponed for six weeks, now to hold on the 29th of June 2018. Preceding the exercise, CRFFN will afford members of ANLCA the opportunity to register its members in the Eastern and Western Zones (Port Harcourt & Lagos respectively). It was further agreed that being inside to effect changes, is better than challenging the actions of CRFFN from outside.
2 – The National President was applauded for securing several waivers, as he promised, for the largely onerous eligibility conditions initially set out in the rules and regulations rolled out, especially as it concerns payment of outstanding dues payable by individual members. The clauses banning the participation of elected, appointed members of associations, and those that went to court against CRFFN & FMOT, in the elections, were totally removed.
3 – Members agreed that the first case challenging the lack of election to constitute a governing council of CRFFN, be withdrawn from court. The second case seeking the categorization of the corporate membership to be defined along professional lines is maintained.
4 – Some other grey areas, particularly perceived by members as injurious to the future interests of ANLCA, were referred to a joint meeting of the National Executive Committee (NECOM) and Board of Trustees, to resolve.
5 – NATIONAL COMMITTEES: The National President stated that by Friday- 18th May 2018, some committees and membership will be announced. A minute silence was observed for the repose of the life of the late wife of Pius Ujubuonu.
6 – On the IFFA issue raised in the course of the meeting, the National President pleaded for time, to enable him address the issue properly.
7 – APPOINTMENTS : The following members were appointed as follows- Comrade Aloy Anokwuru – SSA to the National President on Debt Recovery, Revenue Generation & membership mobilization, Chief Ifeanyi Okpalaas the Presidential Liaison Officer (PLO), East; Chief Eliagwu- SSA media(East) and Alhaji Bojuri Akinsola (Immediate past National Treasurer) as the SSA to the National President on Finance & Planning. All the appointments take immediate effect. Other appointments will be announced in due course.
8 – MEETING WITH ALL CHAPTERS CHAIRMEN: The National President – Iju Tony Nwabunike met with all the Chairmen of Chapters to, once again, solicit their unflinching support in the task of charting a new course in the administration of great ANLCA, to take it to enviable heights. They also, once again, pledge to cooperate with him, through the offices of the Zonal Coordinators, to give their moral and financial support, in the bid of NECOM to address the numerous operational challenges, currently being experienced by members across the chapters.
This was contained in a press release signed by the association’s National Publicity Secretary, Adumaza Joe Sanni.
