News Investigators/ The Patron of the Association of Nigerian Licensed Customs Agents (ANLCA), Henry Njoku says the purported dissolution of the National Executive Committee NECOM of the Association was a ruse, malicious, misleading and inconsistent with ANLCA supreme constitution..
Mr. Njoku said dissolution claims credited to one Dapo Olawumi who stated that Taiwo Mustapha a factional ANLCA board of Trustees Chairman has dissolved the NECOM was misleading.
In a News Release by Albert Peter made available to News Investigators on Sunday, Mr. Njoku faulted the “publication credited to Olawumi that the National Executive Committee NECOM of the Association of Nigerian Licensed Customs Agents ANLCA has been dissolved by Taiwo Mustapha who was alleged to be the Chairman of the Board of Trustees of ANLCA and acted in that capacity to purport to have dissolved the NECOM”
According to the ANLCA chieftain who is also chief executive officer of Harritex group of companies,:, “I wish to state that such publication is misleading and such dissolution is inconsistent with ANLCA’s supreme constitution and only reflects the wish of those who do not mean well for ANLCA, all well-meaning members of ANLCA should disregard the said unconstitutional act and remain calm.”
Speaking further, Njoku said that Taiwo Mustapha who has been specifically restrained by a Federal high Court sitting in Lagos in 2018 in suit no FHC/L/CS/1274 /2018 from parading himself as Chairman of Board of Trustees of ANLCA is neither a member of Board of Trustees of ANLCA nor the Chairman of Board of Trustees of ANLCA registered and recognized by Corporate Affairs Commission Abuja, and wondered where such power to dissolve ANLCA NECOM was gotten.
“Alhaji Taiwo Mustapha and his cohorts have no power under ANLCA’s supreme constitution to announce such dissolution and appointment as Taiwo Mustapha has been specifically restrained by the Federal High Court sitting in Lagos in suit no FHC/L/CS/1274 /2018 from parading himself as Chairman of Board of Trustees of ANLCA. “
In a related development, the Eastern Zonal executive committee of ANLCA has rejected in its entirety the purported dissolution of ANLCA National Executive Committee ably led by the Acting National president, Dr Farinto Collins.
This position was disclosed to Newsmen in Port Harcourt by the Zonal Secretary, Joshua Ahuama on behalf of the Zonal Chairman Uche Martins.
Recall that ANLCA which is the oldest Maritime association in Nigeria has been engulfed in a lingering crisis for many years which has defied every effort to resolve it.
