The founder of the National Association of Government Approved Freight Forwarders (NAGAFF), Dr Boniface Aniebonam, has said he advised the President of the Association of Nigerian Licensed Customs Agents (ANLCA), Tony Iju Nwabunike to take action against those disturbing his administration.
But, Aniebonam speaking recently at a public forum in Apapa, Lagos said he was the one that advised ANLCA President, Tony Iju to take decision which led to the purported expulsion of some Board of Trustees (BOT) members of the association.
“This is why my big brother, Iju Ozobulu, when he was being disturbed in ANLCA, I told him, Tony you have to take decision, you cannot satisfy everybody”
Since Tony Iju took decision in ANLCA, do you still hear noise? Some people were expelled,” he said
