The National President of Association of Nigeria Licensed Customs Agents (ANLCA), Hon. Tony Iju has commended Customs Brokers and freight forwarders in the Nigerian maritime industry for their professionalism and excellent performance during the lockdown arising from covid 19 pandemic.
 
He gave the commendation in his Sallah message to the muslim professionals for the year 2020 Eid-El Kabir celebration.
 
He however enjoined all Customs brokers and freight forwarders to be alert as they have significant roles to play in helping Nigeria attain her expected Gross Domestic Product (GDP) of US $250 Billion by the end of 2020. 
 
“Our professionalism and excellence in the face of logistics constraints like bad roads suspended rail services for cargo movement, unfriendly and exploitative practices by shipping companies and terminal operators truly stand us out as economic caregivers.
 
“We have roles to play in helping Nigeria attain her expected Gross Domestic Product (GDP) of 250 Billion US Dollars by the end of 2020. Let’s keep our eyes on the ball.
 
“You have kept the economy moving, contributing to government revenue, helping to sustain employment and keeping the cycle of commerce moving while abiding by safety precautions as advised by National Center for Disease Control (NCDC).
 
“As customs brokers and freight forwarders, we contributed immensely to the realisation of over N500b half year revenue collection by Nigeria Customs Service (NCS) and ensured goods arrived importers warehouses after exiting our ports through seamless logistics.
 
 Hon. Iju further lauded them for keeping faith and showing love for Nigeria and the maritime, aviation, general transport and total logistics industries through selfless commitment to the nation’s import-dependent economy by being out there working as essential service providers even in the face of lockdown in the wake of the Covid19 pandemic.
 
“Your sacrifices which symbolise total obedience to our Creator’s directives, have become  acceptable standards as exemplified by Prophet Ibrahim who moved to sacrifice his son without querying Allah until an alternative sacrifice was provided.
 
“Most of you have shown love for our country and the maritime, aviation, general transport and total logistics industries through selfless commitment to our Importation dependent economy by being out there working as essential service providers even in the face of lockdown in the wake of the Covid19 pandemic.
 
“You have kept the economy moving, contributing to government revenue, helping to sustain employment and keeping the cycle of commerce moving while abiding by safety precautions as advised by National Center for Disease Control (NCDC).
 
“As customs brokers and freight forwarders , we contributed immensely to the realisation of over N500b half year revenue collection by Nigeria Customs Service (NCS) and ensured goods arrived importers warehouses after exiting our ports through seamless logistics.
 
“While joining the world to celebrate this feast of sacrifice and selfless giving, let’s not lose our guard against the Corona Virus that has altered our global economy, religious orders and social lifestyles”, he admonished the forwarders.
