Aspiring members of the Association of Nigerian Licensed Customs Agents (ANLCA) Board of Trustees (BoT) should better be wary of the association’s Tin Can Chapter Chairman, Prince Kayode Oyinlola, as he has threatened to prevent the entry of incompetent members into the highest advisory body of the association.
An election that will usher in a new set of ANLCA Board members has been scheduled to hold February 13, 2014.
Oyinlola, during an exclusive chat with SHIPS & PORTS DAILY, said that the BoT is an integral part of ANLCA and therefore should not be toyed with.
He said: “I will really participate seriously in that election because the Board is very important in the life of ANLCA. We must not allow board members who are going to bring us down. In fact, we will not allow them to enter.”
From Oyinlola’s deduction, most of the aspirants are only interested to sit on the board just to be part of the repositioned ANLCA.
“I can tell you that the lawyer of one of these new aspirants had his lawyer write to ANLCA to stop collecting money from his company but he is back now to say he wants to contest ANLCA board membership. I see most of them as trying to belong to the new face of ANLCA, the progressed ANLCA. They now see that it is not the ANLCA they left that is now on so they now want to belong. If they have any ulterior motive I don’t know but we are waiting for that election,” he said.
The ANLCA chieftain had also rated the performance of the outgoing BoT members high.
