Aliance of Registered Freight Forwarders In Nigeria(ARFFIN) have received news of a supposed reshuffle of the Board of Trustees of Association of Nigerian Licensed Customs Agents(ANLCA)
Ordinarily, we are not supposed to be concerned with any internal operations of any freight forwarding association.
However, in view of our confirmation that the Board meeting in which the supposed reshuffle decision was taken was not legitimately convened, a situation that made the meeting and by extension, its decision, illegal. In view, also of the fact that reason given for the supposed reshuffle was based on ethnic sentiment, with its capacity to destabilize the current peace in the Freight Forwarding subsector and in view of the fact that ANLCA is the foremost freight forwarding association in Nigeria, we cannot fold our hands and watch an imminent destabilization of the subsector.
In the light of the above, we, the above Alliance reject the supposed reshuffle and urge all concerned to also reject the supposed reshuffle.
Finally, we are hereby using this medium to also advise the perpetrators of the illegal reshuffle to retrace their steps and embrace due processes in the interest of peace in the Freight Forwarding subsector.
Thank you all for your time.
