Aniebonam Sends Goodwill Message
…… Advices Adeniyi to Remain Neutral on NAGAFF, ANLCA Rivalry
By Jerry Aguigbo
Founder National Association Of Government Approved Freight Forwarders, (NAGAFF) Dr Boniface O. Aniebonam has sent his Goodwill message to the Nigeria Customs Service,organisers of the on-going CGC’s Conference.
Dr Aniebonam while acknowledging receipt of the invite expressed
regrets that the less than 24hrs receipt of the invitation to attend the opening ceremony of the conference and subsequent events has made his attendance a herculean task.
He however, ceased the opportunity to advise the CGC, Compt. Wale Adeniyi to remain neutral on the age long rivalry between NAGAFF and the Association Of Nigerian Licensed Customs Agents (ANLCA).
In his words,
“My little advice shall be that you watch the avoidable rivalry between NAGAFF and ANLCA . Therefore you may wish to remain neutral in their affairs and concentrate in your statutory duty as the leader of the Nigeria customs service.”
While also hinting that
the legal battle at the supreme Court of Nigeria between his party, the new NIGERIA PEOPLES PARTY and All progressive congress, APC over the Governorship election of kano state, is indeed taking most of his time at the moment.
Also acknowledging the dint of hard work put in by the CGC to reposition the Service, Aniebonam says,
“Indeed your effort to reposition Nigeria customs service towards sustainable and more productive revenue collection organisation is being appreciated.
The task ahead in a corrupt society is indeed a great challenge. But I know with hard work and support of the greater numbers of the stakeholders shall be the tonic required to achieve objective.
Keep the good work going and it is my belief that God shall assist you and the management team to make Nigeria great once again. Nigeria customs service and her officers are the first officers of the federal Republic Nigeria,” he stated.
Continuing, he said,
“Under the circumstances a lot is desirous of the officers and men of the service to add value in our nation building and the economy in Particular.
It is my hope that thereafter this conference the CGC and the management team shall take responsibility to bring about professionalism in the business of customs administration and facilitation of international trade.
I wish you a successful conference while pledging the support and cooperation of NAGAFF during your tenure . God bless everyone.” He Concluded.
