The Association of Nigerian Licensed Customs Agents (ANLCA) has been invited by the house of representatives committee on the Nigeria Customs Service and Excise. This is sequel to the first invitation which was honoured with the vice president of the association, Dr. Kayode Farinto earlier in the week meeting with the members of the committee and presenting their position on the allegation made against the association by the management team of the Nigeria Customs Service.
Col. Hameed Ali (Rtd), the CG of Customs.
It should be recalled that the management team of the NCS had alleged that the ANLCA has been hindering the process of the Customs engaging in 100% examination of cargoes within the Ports and terminals and this allegation has strained the relationship between the two different entities.
The letter of invitation which was signed by Hon. Leke Abejide, the chairman of house committee on Customs and Excise reads in part “The ongoing misunderstanding between two critical stakeholders in the Nigerian Ports has been brought to the notice of the committee and knowing fully the importance of these critical stakeholders in the area of revenue generation which is equally critical to the Federal Government of Nigeria, the committee deemed it expedient to mediate and resolve the issue amicably without media war”.
The two parties are scheduled to meet with the committee on Thursday, the 14th of October inside the meeting room 447, 4th floor of the house of representatives.
