Nwokeoji’s Presidency Will Reposition ANLCA, Says APFFLON

The Africa Association of Professional Freight Forwarders and Logistics of Nigeria, APFFLON has expressed optimism that the emergence of Mr. Emenike Nwokeoji as National President of the Association of Nigerian Licensed Customs Agents, ANLCA will reposition the association as the foremost freight-forwarding body in Nigeria.

MMS Plus recalls that the association has been rocked with a leadership crisis for more than two years now, but all that was laid to rest as Nwokeoji emerged president of the association at a keenly contested election held in Lagos.

Nwokeoji defeated former Acting President, Dr Kayode Farinto to emerge as the president.

Reacting to the victory in a congratulatory message personally signed by the National President of APFFLON, Otunba Frank Ogunojemite, he expressed delight over the successful conduct of the elections describing it as a welcome development.

Otunba Ogunojemite felicitated Mr. Emenike Nwokeoji and Prince Segun Odutan, saying that he was strongly of the belief that their emergence as National President and National Vice President respectively, would engender lasting peace in the association and also reposition it in its place as the foremost umbrella body for freight forwarders.

Ogunojemite in the message, described the duo of Nwokeoji and Odutan as seasoned Customs Brokers, who by dint of hard work and self-discipline, have distinguished themselves in the profession.

In the message, he commended the efforts and contributions of the immediate past Acting National President of ANLCA, Dr. Kayode Collins Farinto, describing him as a man of courage. He said that Farinto’s ability to stem the tide and brave all odds to the point of reconciliation to election is worthy of ovation.

Ogunojemite urged the new National Executive Committee led by Nwokeoji to shun leadership of vendetta and extend their hands of fellowship to others who did not make the team.

According to him, “We can now heave a sigh of relief having come to a point where the baton of leadership has been peacefully handed over to another team by way of election. We solicit strong cooperation and support for the new team as we pray for the successful repositioning of the association for greater glory.”

“I want to deeply appreciate the Customs Consultative Council, chaired by Alhaji Hakeem Olanrewaju, for the intervention and efforts made to see that peace and order returned to the association. We need a very enabling business environment, freight forwarders are anxiously eager to see a new crop of leaders who would speak and defend their interest and not those that would promulgate 6.6.1.1.1, betray the trust and confidence reposed in them”, he emphasized.
