… God is visiting ANLCA – Farinto

As part of peace process, one of the seven suspended members of the Association of Nigeria Licensed Customs Agents (ANLCA), Mr. Temitope Akindele has tendered his apology to the National Executive Committee (NEC) of the association.

Akindele, a former Secretary and Vice Chairman of the Murtala Mohammed International Airport chapter of the association said he tendered the apology as a result of spiritual direction to seek peace with everyone.

He noted that the move was the beginning of reconciliation and total peace in ANCLA adding that nothing had ever wrong and spoilt that can never be amended.

“Like I said, it is going to be give and take. Give this you take this. Nobody has ever lost anything in ANLCA. We will all come together irrespective of status in the association. The whole chapter in the federation will come back and speak out; this is how we want the association to grow. That is the reason why somebody has to champion this course”, he said.

He assured that the letter of apology he tendered was to begin reconciliation peace, saying that nobody has left the association and everybody had to come to the table and resolve the crisis in the association.

Speaking in a press briefing in Lagos on Tuesday, the National Vice President of the association, Dr. Kayode Farinto disclosed that ANLCA has accepted his apology adding that those who think they can bring down the association should have a rethink.

Farinto opined that “What kills a man is ego, which is what is affecting ANCLA”, adding that “a lot of thing is happening in the industry and ANCLA’s members are suffering as a result of infighting.”

While pointing out that God was visiting the association, the National Vice President submitted that “this is just the beginning of a big thing that is happening in the association.”

He said the association would extend a letter of invitation to Mr. Temitope Akindele and all the leaders of the association present for National Executive Committee Members (NECOM) meeting on Thursdays, September 2, 2021.

It would be recalled that the association suspended seven members over gross indiscipline and anti-association activities that caused the association pains.
