The National President of the Association of Nigerian Licensed Customs Agents (ANLCA), Mr. Tony Iju Nwabunike has warned against congestion in the nation’s seaports due to the consequences of post #endsars protest across the country.
The ANLCA boss said that the entire country is in a confused state, hence the need for the group to put its house in order before the congestion becomes an issue.
Nwabunike also disclosed that he has been meeting with Chapter Chairmen of the association across the nation via Zoom to harmonise the influx of cargoes and work out strategies to move against the looming congestion.
He explained the situation is a general one as every port in the country is affected by the situation.
“We enumerate these problems and moving into the various ports to ascertain the level of influx of cargoes into these ports so as to find ways of averting a port congestion crisis.
“We will definitely engage government on this matter, but now we cannot open discussion with government because the government is currently in total disarray as all the Ministers and the heads of government agencies have been directed to go to their villages.
