The Association of Nigerian Licensed Customs Agents (ANLCA) will now hold it’s elections on the 6th and 7th of September in Lagos,.

“The meeting was attended by the following CCC representative and the  ANLCA Leaders: Aare Hakeem Olarenwaju Rff – CCC Chairman; DCG Austen Warikoru – CCC Nominated Presiding Officer; Dr Eugene Nweke – CCC Secretary; HRH Eze Amb. Damian Obianigwe – Special Invited Guest; Alhaji Taiwo Mustapha – BOT Chairman; Chief Sir Ernest Elochukwu – BOT Member; Prince Ozo Chukwura – BOT V/Chairman; Mr Eniola Igbariola – BOT Member; Chief Emenike Nwokeoji – Presidential Aspirant; Prince Segun Oduntan – Vice Presidential Aspirant; Mr Farinto Kayode – Presidential Aspirant; Chief Dennis Okwu – Vice Presidential Aspirant; Alhaji Mukiala Abdulazeez – Sole Administrator; Nze Aloy Igwe – ASECO Chairman; Mr Obe Samuel Oluwole – ASECO Member; Mr Lekan Babalola – ASECO Member; Mr Elochukwu Obiora Emmanuel – ASECO Member; Mr Fatimehin Tope – ASECO Member and Mr Mustapha Yakubu – ASECO Member.
“The CCC dispassionately looked at the goals before it and requested leaders to embrace same. Afterwards, it carefully and exhaustively looked at the submissions and issues raised by all the concerned parties in attendance and resolve as thus:
“The corporate image, members (practitioners) of ANLCA and the Professionals should be the core interest of every leader in attendance.
“In the light of this, it was then mutually agreed that, on this negotiation table for the election harmonization process, every one is urged to make sacrifices and be committed to protecting the corporate image of the ANLCA and preserve the professional interest.
“That, while considering any workable options towards arriving at a generally acceptable election modality, that the adopted  ANLCA Supreme Constitution, must not loose its essence, wherefore any election options or modalities,  must be in compliance with the stipulations of the Constitution 2013. Wherefore, for emphasis sake, all flexible considerations must not mean a deliberate intent to undermine the Constitution but rather a path to finding peace for a common good.
“That, the total considerate and acceptable electorates to be enlisted to make the voters lists is 93 members, which includes: the Chapter Executives = 61; BOT members = 8 and Aspirants = 24. This list is subject to ratification following the constitutional enabled process as shall be published by ASECO.
“Specifically, it agreed that, ASECO shall first publish a provisional voters list and give grace for reverifications and reactions by the concerned party, and thereafter, it can go ahead to publish the final voters list.
“All eligible voters must be subjected to screening by ASECO. In the same manner, the Aspirants across camps are at liberty to rescreen the published voters list with consideration to eligibility of such enlisted licenses.
“That, at the end of this process, the BOT, ADMIN and ASECO should write their reports, just as the CCC shall also write its own reports of the meeting outcome.
“That, in order to ensure that, an ample time is given for ASECO not to undertake a hurried election or make hasty mistakes, an extension of time beyond the 31st August, was considered. Considerably, two (2) weeks additional days was approved for ASECO to tidy up with the election.
“That the date finally agreed for ASECO to conduct the election commencing, two (2) weeks from today and that is 6th and 7th of September, 2023.
“That, the election should be held in Lagos for ease of logistics.
“That, the BOT should use its position to raise and fund the financial shortfall of #5million required by the ASECO to execute the election.
“That, the Admin should assist the ASECO with necessary information needed for positive outcome.”
