President of the Association of Nigerian Licensed Customs Agent, ANLCA, Prince OlayiwolaÂ Shittu has stated that the situation of ANLCA was a challenge as they have so manyÂ problems on the ground.
He said there was a vacuum of 18 months before he came into office when theÂ administrative officer was in charge of affairs of ANLCA leading to certain problems.
Shittu said he believed in doing the right thing at the right time, adding â€œI donâ€™t giveÂ bribe, I donâ€™t take bribe.â€
According to the ANLCA president, the only source of fund available to the organisationÂ is the contributions from members.
He blamed the past leadership of the association for the present problems facing ANLCAÂ because they failed to utilised the money they realised to uplift the association.
Shittu said he was one of the pioneers of a national identity for freight forwarding inÂ Nigeria.
â€œIn 2000, I sponsored a bill titled â€˜Council for the Regulation of Clearing andÂ Farwarding in Nigeriaâ€™. It lacked a follow up and so died a natural death.
He said â€œI have never collected any special money from FRFFN except sitting allowance ofÂ between N20,000 and N30,000Â and I have never travelled abroad on the platform of CRFFNÂ member, neither was I given an official car.â€
