Segun Oladipupo    |   

The Association of Nigeria Licensed Customs Agents (ANLCA) said it has retrieved 23 blocked licenses during the Covid-19 pandemic.

The licenses were blocked by the management of the Nigeria Customs Services (NCS) over various infractions.

The foremost association of customs brokers said machineries were in motion to help retrieve about 30 more licences of members suffering similar fate.

Recall that the association reportedly helped to unblock about 
300 clearing licenses blocked by the service through the intervention of the Hon. Tony Iju- led National Executives.

Disclosing this to newsmen at a joint press briefing by the President, Vice president and Secretary of the group in Lagos last week, Secretary General of ANLCA, Alhaji Abdulazeez Babatunde Mukaila said that licenses recovery happened daily.

Mukaila explained that the association had intervened on behalf of members and willing members in ensuring that their practicing licenses were unblocked and retrieved despite the pandemic.

According to him, members who had issues with their customs licenses visit the National Secretariat on a daily basis, seeking for assistance on how to regain their impounded licenses.

He reiterated that Tony Iju Nwabunike- led association will engage the service once members are diligent and compliant with government  directive.

The ANLCA Scribe added that the association would always stand by its members whenever issues bothering on oppressions  arose.

“We have equally helped some of our willing members who are tired to be on the fringe line They have the experience but they don’t have the license but those people are now encouraged.

“We were able to recover 23 licenses this year despite COVID19, ranging from Abuja to Post Clearannce Audit PCA and we assured our members that once you are in right path of compliance, you can count on us. 

“Because we don’t want a situation whereby government agencies would want to muscle you up when you are doing your legitimate job,” he submitted.
