The leadership of the Maritime Workers Union of Nigeria (MWUN) has deepened its partnership with the Association of Nigeria Licensed Customs Agents (ANLCA) in a bid to optimize port operations in the country.
Both organizations strengthened this partnership when the President-General of MWUN, Prince Adewale Adeyanju hosted the newly elected ANLCA National Executives at the MWUN headquarters, yesterday.
The Head of MWUN Media, Comrade John Kennedy Ikemefuna, disclosed this via a press statement disseminated yesterday.
“Comrade Adeyanju, who is also the Deputy President of Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) received his guests with accolades, noting that the ANCLA elections have been initially marred by issues bordering on factional divisions amongst others, but today all that have become history and the Association now have wonderful executives in place. This is to say that the recent elections have brought about what we now have and see today as new ANCLA leaders.”
“In this vein, I want to commend both the past and the present executives for this latest uninterrupted election and pray this administration will usher in the much awaited peace to reign supreme in ANCLA,” the MWUN President General said.
He also assured that the Maritime Workers Union will happily work with the ANLCA leadership for mutual cooperation and collaboration which will strengthen both organisations to positively impact the nation’s economy via the maritime industry.
Adeyanju also praised losers and winners of the just concluded ANCLA elections for accepting the results in good faith, stressing that there’s need to carry everyone along in the scheme of things and all hands must be on deck for a better administration of the Association.
The leadership of ANCLA reciprocated the same gesture by saying that the newly elected leadership will synergize with MWUN in order to achieve one common goal of growing the country’s economy through all the seaports.
ANCLA President, Chief Emenike Nwokeoji also described Comrade Adeyanju as a man of peace, whose leadership acumen in the sector has been exceptional and exemplary.
