“PAAR still enjoys our confidence”- Customs Brokers

Prince Olayiwola Shittu

…As ANLCA dissociates itself from PAAR Critics

The Association of Nigerian Licensed Customs Agents (ANLCA) has reiterated its strong belief in the reality of the Custom’s latest innovation, the Pre-Arrival Assessment Report (PAAR) as a very viable international tool of trade, stressing that the association till date, was yet to find any strong deficiency, aside from correctable human element issues, in the platform.

The umbrella body of Nigeria’s freight forwarders made the statement, against the backdrop of what it described as insinuation from “mischief makers”, wishing to use the ANLCA as a pivot to buttress erroneous position that PAAR cannot work.

“ANLCA has never condemned PAAR since its inception; and we are not doing so, even now”, the ANLCA National President, Prince Olayiwola Shittu, told the Maritime First, adding that the umbrella body was already working with a team, on the need to intimate the Nigeria Customs Service, the observed areas of human element lapses, which should be timely corrected, to enable the Service dismay the insignificant fractions of arm-chair critics, who from inception, had never seen anything good about PAAR.

“ANLCA believes in PAAR, as any other international tool of trade facilitation. ANLCA is under-studying the human element in PAAR’s implementation; the result of which we will soon forward to the Customs high Command, in order to fine tune the efficiency of its implementation.

“We hereby absolve the ANLCA from the untruth being spread around by detractors, who never see anything good in anything they cannot benefit, illegally”, Shittu stated further, even as expressed concern that his association would not be able to go to Kenya, for the purpose of receiving the AME Best Customs Brokers-in-Africa Award; which incidentally the group was earning, for the second time. The World Health Organization (WHO) recently raised the alarm on Kenya, as a likely bus stop for the dreaded Ebola Virus Decease (EVD), thereby making the zone, a no-go area, for the Nigerian Customs brokers.

“The presentation for the award was slated for this month, in Kenya. And we have made adequate preparation to attend and receive the award; but we won’t again”, he indicated, explaining that the group has now begun a plan to see, if the award ceremony could be re-scheduled for South Africa, to enable the association attend and collect its cherished award.

It would be recalled that there was only the ANLCA, existing as an umbrella body and protection platform for Nigerian Customs brokers, before internal wrangling resulted in a few break-away factions.

  6. TEEMCO LLC, an oilfield engineering company based in the Oklahoma City suburb of Edmond, thrust themselves into the spotlight over the last year, signing huge endorsement deals with the Oklahoma City Thunder, The University of Oklahoma, Oklahoma State University, and local CBS television affiliate KWTV, among others.TEEMCO made another big splash when they announced plans to purchase and renovate the historic Gold Dome building in central Oklahoma City, with their CEO Greg Lorson comparing the building’s positive electromagnetic energy to golf bracelets and revealing plans that included massive aquariums and the world’s largest salt crystal lamp.But as these audacious deals were being signed and promoted, TEEMCO and it’s chief executive were mired in legal and financial issues, and the troubles appear to be quickly escalating.

  9. A lot of of whatever you claim is supprisingly accurate and it makes me wonder the reason why I had not looked at this with this light before. Your piece truly did turn the light on for me as far as this specific subject goes. Nonetheless at this time there is 1 issue I am not really too comfortable with so while I attempt to reconcile that with the actual main theme of the position, let me observe just what all the rest of the subscribers have to say.Well done.

  10. Hello! Someone in my Facebook group shared this site with us so I came to give it a look. I’m definitely loving the information. I’m bookmarking and will be tweeting this to my followers! Fantastic blog and outstanding design.

  11. Wow that was strange. I just wrote an incredibly long comment but after I clicked submit my comment didn’t appear. Grrrr… well I’m not writing all that over again. Anyways, just wanted to say great blog!

  12. With havin so much content do you ever run into any issues of plagorism or copyright infringement? My site has a lot of exclusive content I’ve either written myself or outsourced but it looks like a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my permission. Do you know any solutions to help reduce content from being stolen? I’d genuinely appreciate it.

  13. Excellent website you have here but I was curious if you knew of any message boards that cover the same topics discussed here? I’d really like to be a part of community where I can get suggestions from other knowledgeable people that share the same interest. If you have any recommendations, please let me know. Thanks!

  14. My developer is trying to convince me to move to .net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the costs. But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using WordPress on a number of websites for about a year and am nervous about switching to another platform. I have heard good things about blogengine.net. Is there a way I can transfer all my wordpress content into it? Any help would be really appreciated!

  15. I have not checked in here for some time as I thought it was getting boring, but the last few posts are great quality so I guess I will add you back to my everyday bloglist. You deserve it my friend 🙂

  16. Hi would you mind letting me know which web host you’re working with? I’ve loaded your blog in 3 different browsers and I must say this blog loads a lot faster then most. Can you recommend a good internet hosting provider at a reasonable price? Thank you, I appreciate it!

  17. Have you ever thought about including a little bit more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is fundamental and all. But just imagine if you added some great pictures or video clips to give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with pics and video clips, this site could definitely be one of the most beneficial in its niche. Amazing blog!

  18. Howdy! This is kind of off topic but I need some guidance from an established blog. Is it very hard to set up your own blog? I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty fast. I’m thinking about creating my own but I’m not sure where to start. Do you have any ideas or suggestions? Cheers

  19. Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.
