Truck owners, Custom agents suspend strike at Lagos ports

After days of activities disruption by the truck drivers and custom agents, the association has finally called off its strike after a meeting held yesterday, May 17 2017 at the Headquarters of the National Association of Government Approved Freight Forwarders (NAGAFF) Apapa, Lagos.

In  a statement released by the Association of Nigeria Licensed Customs Agents,(ANLCA) states that   “the decision to call off the strike was in consideration of the pleas by government representatives and other well-meaning Nigerians that the strike will  be suspended while  the government would be in a position to address issues that led to the strike”

The agents commended the Executive Secretary of Nigerian Shippers’ Council (NSC), Hassan Bello and Managing Director of the Nigerian Ports Authority (NPA), Ms. Hadiza Bala Usman, for their efforts in addressing the issues that led to the strike and also their members for their support during the exercise and urged them to remain calm in order to protect their interests

They, however, gave the government a fresh 21-day ultimatum to address all the issues in contention so as to avert another round of withdrawal of services.
