ANLCA promises To Partner Imo State On Inland Dry Port Development

The Association of Nigeria Licensed Customs Agents ( ANLCA) has promised to give free Consultancy Services and other support to the Imo State government for the quick development of Inland Dry Port and Inland  Container Terminal as well as  the Oguta Lake dredging to the Atlantic Ocean.

It would be recalled that the Imo State Governor,  Senator Hope Uzodima has said that the Federal government has approved the dredging of the Oguta Lake to the Atlantic Ocean to kick-start  maritme activities in the state.

The ANLCA leadership led by  its Acting National President, Dr Kayode Farinto and Patron Chief Henry Njoku among other  chieftains of the association, on Monday, paid a courtesy visit to the Imo State Governor,  Senator Hope Uzodinma in Government House , Owerri.

Speaking at the  courtesy visit by the association, Acting National President of ANLCA, Dr Kayode Farinto said the association has been following activities of the governor and summed that has been working tirelessly.

He  commended the governor for his infrastructural deveelopment in the areas of education, health, roads etc of the state, despite the security and other challenges being witnessed in the state.

Farinto said ANLCA, which  has been in existence since 1954, with friends  in various government agencies, never had a Grand Patron.

Justifying the selection of the governor as Patron two years ago, the Acting National President said “we looked at the work you did as Chairman, Senate Committee on Customs and you also assisted us too. You recovered stolen money to the Federation Account, thank you sir for that good job”.

The ANLCA Acting National President who said he drew his strength from the Imo State Governor as a dogged fighter, also informed him that the National President of ANLCA, Hon. Tony Nwabunike , who is also his very good friend, sent his warm greetings  as he is on a study  leave in the United States.

He said the association decided not to  bother him on courtesy visit, but to allow him concentrate on issues of governance, assuring  the governor that the association hopes to come later in the year to celebrate his second term in office.
