By Jerry Aguigbo
The leadership of the Maritime Workers Union of Nigeria (MWUN) under the leadership of Comrade (Prince) Dr. Adewale Adeyanju fnli HFCPSP, has congratulated the newly elected executives of the Association of Nigerian Licensed Customs Agents ( ANLCA ) whose election took place recently in Lagos.
As the new ANLCA Executives paid a courtesy visit to the MWUN President – General and his national executives at the Union’s National Secretariat at Osho Drive, Olodi-Apapa, Lagos.
Speaking at the event,
Comrade Adeyanju, who also doubles as the Deputy President of Nigeria Labour Congress received his guests with accolades, noting that the ANLCA Association elections which initially was severally marred with so many issues bordering on factional divisions amongst others, have finally become history and the Association now has wonderful Executives in place. This, according to the MWUN PG is to say that the recent elections have brought about what we now have and see today as new ANCLA leaders.
He commended 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 the Association.
In his words,”We as members of the Maritime Workers Union are happy with you and hope to keep our doors open for mutual cooperation and for a possible collaboration which will strengthen both organisations to positively impact our nation’s economy in the maritime industry.
The leadership of ANLCA reciprocated in same gesture by saying that the newly elected leadership will assure that both bodies will synergise in order to achieve one common goal of growing the country’s economy through all the seaports. They also described Comrade Adeyanju as a man of peace, whose leadership acumen in the sector cannot be over-emphasised; hence, the visit to the Maritime Workers Union was very paramount to the new leadership.
Prince Adeyanju who was full of praises for both losers and winners of the just concluded ANLCA elections said there’s need to carry everyone along in the scheme of things as if there was no loser, no winner; he therefore sued that all hands must be on deck for a better administration of the Association.
The number uno of the Maritime Labour Industry admonished the new leadership to work in one direction of purpose, while congratulating the new leaders. He also promised the new leaders that he is poised to reciprocate their gesture in earnest.
