The Senior Special Assistant to the National President of the Association of Nigerian Licensed Customs Agents (ANLCA) on Government Warehouse, Mr. Olawale Cole, has called on President Bola Ahmed Tinubu to review import duties and levies on Tokunbo vehicles and general Cargoes.

Speaking in a statement issued on Tuesday, Olawale Cole, who also doubles as the Director of Planning and Strategies of the youth wing of the Tinubu-Shettima Independent Campaign Council (ICC) expressed optimism that the new administration of Tinubu/Shettima would take Nigeria to higher heights.

This, according to him, is a sequel to their records of stewardship while they held sway as governors in their respective States of Lagos and Borno by delivering real dividends of democracy.

Cole urged President Tinubu to urgently look into problems mitigating the growth of the maritime industry. He informed that the majority of Nigerian youths in the maritime sector, such as the Nigeria Customs Service (NCS), Freight Forwarding, and the Barge operating industry, are greatly affected by policy inconsistencies, among others.

He added that import duties and levy imposed on Tokunbo vehicles and General cargo has to be reviewed in order to increase the economy revenue generation and employment.
