Sequel to resolve of members of the Association of Nigerian Licensed Customs Agents (ANLCA) to eschew crisis and chart a new course, two groups, the Muritala  Mohammed International Airport  Chapter of ANLCA and Oganiru -Igbo, an organized body of Igbo extraction of Customs Brokers from the Airport have passed a Vote of Confidence on the leadership of Tony Nwabunike and his entire Executive members.

The groups expressed the Vote of Confidence during a solidarity visit to the National President of the Association, Hon. Iju Tony Nwabunike at the ANLCA, NECOM House to show their support.
In an address presented by the Airport Chapter of the Association during the visit,  they stated  some demands and assurances  which includes, “The License owners of Muritala Mohammed International Airport Chapter is solemnly behind the present NECOM and we pledged  our loyalty to Mr President and Exco. 
” That we want election to be taken in our chapter  before  the expired date of the Interim Government. That we  want the status quo of the Interim Government to remain as it is. We   want ASECO to give us   viable time table for the election and also give us  the assurance that the  time table will be followed accordingly.”

They  also demands that, NECOM  representative/ official should visit them at least twice a year and that the NECOM should appoint a representative from their chapter as intermediary between them and NECOM  to  avert information gap among other demands. Over 35 members signed the statement.
On their part, the Oganiru-Igbo stated in their address to the ANLCA, NECOM that  they are  a Pan -Igbo  Think Tank /Interest Group  for the upliftment, renaissance, promotion and protection of Igbo interest in the Freight and Forwarding industry in Nigeria.According to them, they  paid the solidarity visit to the ANLCA National President, Hon. Iju Tony Nwabunike to  align itself with the tremendous and selfless services he has conceptualized and nurtured to fruition in ANLCA.
Some of their demands and appeals includes, ” That we stand in solidarity with you on the myriad of orchestrated Court cases/ litigations against your person and your presidency of ANLCA.
That all Men/ Women of goodwill and voice of reason in the Clearing and Forwarding business are resoundingly in agreement that your second term ambition will be pursued with such vigour unprecedented in the annals of electioneering. 
That we implore our aggrieved compatriots to find it expedient to dialogue with our own brothers and sisters viewed as not in tandem with their own ideas/ ideologies” And that they urged all gladiators laying political and economical landmines through frivolous litigations  to cease fire and return to the trajectory of vision  and reason , as there will not be even a pyhric  victory for them anywhere, the group  said.
Responding, the ANLCA National President, thanked them for their show of solidarity and love and promised them that all their demands and appeals are  genuine and that NECOM, under his  leadership is proud of them.
Nwabunike further promised that his leadership in ANLCA is to build a strong institution and appeal for all to shun  hatred and crisis in the Association, but to work for peace and  progress  for a greater ANLCA.
