The Chairman, Association of Nigerian Licensed Customs Agents (ANLCA) Onne Chapter, Chief Kingsley Offor, has solicited for support of members and other stakeholders for effective service delivery and smooth cargo clearance at ports.
Speaking with The Nation of his re-election bid, he said ANLCA’s vision was to enhance members’ welfare.
Offor gave kudos to the Board of Trustees and the leadership of the association for their commitment to promoting truth and enhancing unity and justice among members.
“I call on ANLCA faithful to remain focused and steadfast to the association’s tenets to ensure that adequate synergies and partnerships with stakeholders at the port aimed at enthroning a conducive working environment and seamless cargo clearance were upheld.
ANLCA Onne chapter, findings revealed, has achieved tremendous impacts in promoting members’ welfare, such as provision of 36-seater coaster bus, medical care for all members and on the job training of members in line with global challenges.
Ofor urged other members to come on board to serve ANLCA “because it’s a self-serving mission to protect the interest of all members and the growth of the association”.
ANLCA, he said, will continue to develop and sustain a conducive working relationship with the Nigeria Customs Service (NCS), Standards Organisation of Nigeria (SON), NAFDAC and other stakeholders.
“If elected, I will retain my open and all-inclusive policy for all members irrespective of their status because ANLCA is one united and individual body,’’ he said.
While assuring that ANLCA members would continue to work in line with global best practices, Offor urged government agencies at the port to re-strategise and fast-track compliance on cargo clearance to facilitate trade, enforce the Easy of Doing Business policy and enhance revenue generation to the Federal Government.
