The Nigerian Shippers’ Council (NSC), on Friday called on clearing agents protesting against the Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) Valuation Policy recently introduced by the Nigeria Customs Service (NCS) on imported vehicles to suspend strike and return to work.
Speaking to leadership of the Association of Nigerian Licensed Customs Agents (ANLCA) and National Association of Government Approved Freight Forwarders (NAGAFF), the Executive Secretary of Shippers’ Council, Hon. Emmanuel Jime said shutting down the port has implication on the economic development of the country.
He, however, assured the clearing agents that suspending the strike will allow for further engagement with the management of the Customs Service.
The agents however condemned the management of the service for not engaging them five day after the strike commenced.
