The Association of Nigeria Licensed Customs Agents (ANLCA) has resolved to contest elections into the Governing Council of the Council for Regulation of Freight Forwarding in Nigeria (CRFFN) as it agreed to withdraw the legal case it instituted challenging CRFFN for failing to hold election to constitute its governing council.
The association also said that it would continue the second legal case against CRFFN seeking the categorization of the corporate membership of the Council to be defined along professional lines.
It would be recalled that the CRFFN elections were scheduled for May before it was hurriedly postponed. The new date is now June 29, 2018.
This development was contained in a press statement made available to PortNews in Lagos by Mr. Joe Sanni, National Publicity Secretary of ANLCA, noting that the ANLCA decision to participate in the elections was part of the outcomes of the National Executive Council meeting of the association presided over by its President, Mr. Tony Iju Nwabunike, in Lagos.
The association noted that the postponement would give ANLCA ample opportunity to register its members in the Eastern and Western Zones (Port Harcourt & Lagos respectively).
According to Joe Sanni, ‘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.’
