ANLCA President Lauds Powerful Pen Media Chapel on Special Congress
* Apapa gridlock is a major impediment on maritime trade – Says Hon Nwabunike
(Report by Udeme Clement):
The National President, Association of Nigeria Licensed Customs Agents (ANLCA), Hon Nwabunike Tony Iju, has openly commended the Powerful Pen Media Chapel, on the just concluded special Congress, which focused on Apapa gridlock and Skyrocketing Inflation in the country.
Hon Nwabunike made the commendation at ANLCA’s headquarters in Lagos, while receiving copies of the Powerful Pen Newspaper published by the Chapel.
He expressed great pleasure on the initiative of the Chapel owned by Maritime Journalists Association of Nigeria (MAJAN), in drawing relevant stakeholders in the port industry to deliberate on such an important issue.
His assertions, “The effort by MAJAN in organising such a successful programme, and most importantly focusing on Apapa traffic gridlock, which is affecting not only port operations, maritime trade but the entire economy of Nigeria, is highly commendable.
“In fact, the courage to chose such sensitive and critical issue is a very good initiative.
“The Maritime Industry is facing a lot of challenges and the truth must be told, like what MAJAN just did with the issue of this perennial gridlock on our ports access roads.”
Hon Nwabunike enthused, “It shows that your President is leading you well, with the right approach to toe the line of hard work and creativity.
“You see, I have known your President, Ray Ugochukwu for over 20 years and he is among theJournalists I respect so much in the maritime industry.
” He has a quiet and gentle personality but intellectually sound and highly knowledgeable”.
More so, the Powerful Pen Media Chapel is an affiliate of Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ), Lagos Chapter. The Chapel was formally inaugurated in 2019. Since then, it remains a force to reckon with in the industry.
