HeadlinesNews Tony Uju’s tenure ends April 2023, Farinto declares By maritimemag January 12, 2022 ShareTweet 0 Abiola Seun The National Vice-President, Association of Nigerian Licensed Customs Agents (ANLCA), Kayode Farinto yesterday said the tenure of the National Executive Committee (NECOM) of the association ends on 18th April 2023. The NECOM of ANLCA include the members of the executive Committee that includes the president, Tony Uju; National Vice-President, Kayode Farinto, Secretary, AbulAzeez Mukaila among others. Farinto in a chat with newsmen yesterday said the tenure of the association’s NECOM doesn’t end in February 2022 as said by the supposed registered Board of Trustee (BoT) members of the association. He further alleged that the tenure of Taiwo Mustapha as BoT chairman of the association has expired and since he has been expelled, cannot hold any position or conduct election on behalf of the association. The association’s Vice-President, however, described as laughable report that he criticised Customs because they blocked all loopholes he used in moving uncustoms goods into the country. Farinto, however, tagged the Western Zone’s coordinator of the association, John Ofobike, the chairman of registered BoT of the association, Mustapha and other members of the group as Customs apologists, campboys and fronts. He said, “I have been a member of ANLCA for over 20 years and I just heard about Bode Mustapha just six years ago after bribing his way through with N500,000 now he’s rubbing shoulder with me. “He is a Customs’ apologist and cannot assassinate my character. He and members of his group are not members of the association anymore because they have been expelled. In the association, I am his senior hence, he shouldn’t rub shoulder with me.” Speaking on tenure expiration, Farinto said the tenure of the executive members of the association expires 18th April, 2023. He also said the new BoT members of the association is headed by the Executive Vice- Chairman, Sifax group, Taiwo Afolabi, and Ozo Chukwura as the Vice- Chairman. “The constitution of ANLCA has been amended and we agreed at the meeting that we should have a single term of five years for National Executive Committee (NECOM), BoT and for all chapter chairmen. “We agreed that the constitutional amendment begins from the tenure of Hon. Tony Iju hence, the present executive tenure ends on 18th April, 2023. “Also, Mustapha cannot conduct election in ANLCA, if I may ask, he wants to conduct election as what? because, he has been expelled from the association and ceased to be a member,” he stated. © 2022, maritimemag.
