The Council for the Regulation of Freight Forwarding in Nigeria (CRFFN) has encouraged members of the warring factions of the Association of Nigeria Licensed Customs Agents (ANLCA) to resolve all lingering leadership issues at the association’s upcoming Annual General Meeting (AGM).
CRFFN’s Acting Registrar, Mrs. Chinyere Uromta revealed this in a press statement today, even as she urged the members of ANLCA not to engage in actions that will truncate the efforts being made to convene an AGM to resolve all issues in the association.
The Council also warned members of the association against seeking court injunction to stop the AGM adding that doing so would be a clear violation of the CRFFN Act.
Part of the CRFFN statement read: “As a Regulator, we have directed the Acting National President of ANLCA to call for the Annual General Meeting of the Directors of the Association which will be monitored and supervised by the Chairman of the Governing Council of CRFFN, Alhaji Abubakar Tsanni and the Council’s Ag. Registrar in order to have a lasting solution to the crisis.”
“We warn that any member of the Association that attempts to thwart or disrupt this effort of having an AGM to resolve all issues. By way of seeking court injunction is violating the Council’s Act and shall face the consequences in line with section 21 sub 3(a) and would be equally made to face a Tribunal by virtue of Section 22 sub 1(a -c).”
According to the statement, the Chairman of the Governing Council of CRFFN, Tsanni has also appealed to all factions to set aside their differences and come for the Annual General Meeting in order to discuss and find lasting solutions to all issues.
