The Association of Nigeria Licensed Customs Agents (ANLCA) has adopted a single term tenure for all its executives right from the chapters level down to the Board of Trustees.
Speaking on Wednesday during a section for amendment of the constitution, during the Annual General Meeting (AGM) of the association with the team “ANLCA New Normal and The Future” ,the members of the association moved motion for one single tenure for all elective positions suggesting a straight four years tenure for executives at chapters level, five years tenure for the National Executive Committee while the BoT will retain its six years tenure but for a single term.
Raising the motion, Mr. Peter Ojo Akintoye ,CEO DanMeyaki Investment Limited,suggested that a single term tenure should be adopted for all the executives at all levels.
Supporting the motion, former chairman of the board,Chief Henry Njoku also aligned with the suggestion, this is even as majority of the members supported the motion while calling that the motion be adopted into the constitution.
The association members also moved that the BoT should not be given the perogative to appoint the Association Electoral Committee (ASECO).
Some of the members argued that the NECOM should be in charge of appointing the ASECO while others states that the ASECO should be independent.
On his part, the formal BoT chairman, Chief Henry Njoku suggested that the appointment of the BoT should remain with the board, suggesting that giving all powers to the NEC may cause havoc, stating that there is need to balance powers
One of the members however allayed fears that making ASECO the Independent could lead to the committee bringing in different kind of rules in other to disqualify a candidate they don’t allign with.
It was however agreed that the ASECO should be independent and be given guidelines to which they can work with by the NECOM
