… Felicitates with Muslims on Eid-El Kabir celebration
The Association of Nigerian Licensed Customs Agents (ANLCA) has noted that the freight forwarders have contributed immensely to the realisation of over N500 billion half year revenue collections by Nigeria Customs Service (NCS) and ensured goods arrive importers warehouses after exiting the ports through seamless logistics.
The National President who stated this in a statement in Lagos said that 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 stands them out as economic caregivers.
Nwabunike observed that the freight forwarders had more roles to play in helping Nigeria to attain her expected Gross Domestic Product (GDP) of 250 Billion US Dollars by the end of 2020.
In a message to Muslim faithful this year on the occasion of Eid El Kabir celebrations, he commended them for their sacrifices, a development he said symbolised total obedience to the creator’s directives as well as acceptable standards as exemplified by Prophet Ibrahim who moved to sacrifice his son without querying Allah until an alternative sacrifice was provided.
Nwabunike noted that Muslims havd shown love for their country especially in the maritime, aviation, general transport and total logistics industries through their selfless commitment to an import dependent economy by being out there working as essential service providers even in the face of lockdown in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic.
He commended them for keeping the economy moving and contributing to government revenue as well as helping to sustain employment and keeping the cycle of commerce moving while abiding by safety precautions as advised by Nigeria Center for Disease Control (NCDC).
