ANLCA: Eight-Member BoT Constituted

After five years of conflict between the two factions of the Association of Nigerian Licenced Customs Agents, ANLCA, an eight-member BoT has been constituted.

The BoT members were appointed at the Association of Nigerian Licenced Customs Agents' first annual meeting, which was held on Wednesday in Lagos.

According to Dr. Abubakar Tsanni, Chairman of the Council for the Regulation of Freight Forwarding in Nigeria, CRFFN, who oversaw the inauguration, the event was viewed as an act of God and that love had brought them together.

He added that after the five-hour discussion with the Mustapha-led BoT and the Farinto-led executives, Prince Taiye Oyeniyi freely decided to resign from his position as a member of the BoT of the association.

As a result of the modification, the association designated Prince Taiye Oyeniyi as a Patron of the association.

The eight (8) newly appointed BOT members are Alhaji Taiwo Mustapha, Dayo Azeez, Sir Ernest Elochukwu, Sir Dennis Okafor, Prince Ozo Chukwura, Alhaji Shamsideen Awopeju, Kingsley Offor, and Mr. Eniola Igbaruola.

According to Dr. Tsanni, the BOT Chairperson would be chosen after two weeks. He was appreciative of everyone who helped make the procedure possible.

Speaking during the occasion as well, Alhaji Taiwo Mustapha asked the association's enraged members to embrace peace.

“Whatever was brought to the table today was out of being magnanimous. It has been a situation of give and take. We must have the spirit of forgiveness. This ANLCA will be great again,”.

Earlier, the acting president, Farinto, urged all association members to accept the new arrangement but expressed the opinion that the BoT's authority in the ANLCA should be curtailed.

Despite the differences between the two parties, Farinto noted that there is no denying that the leaders of the other party have made significant contributions to the expansion of the association.
