Nigeria Auto Policy a Scam, Say Licensed Customs Agents

…Slams Federal Government over Inconsistency of Policies


The Association of Nigerian Licensed Customs Agent (ANLCA) has described   the Nigeria auto policy as a scam, as it does not encourage manufacturing.

The Acting National President, ANLCA, Dr. Kayode Farinto, who made this Known  on Friday, in a media statement, alleged that the policy in its present state only benefit marketers, who cannot manufacture any local content.

He claims: “The policy does not encourage manufacturing but people who cannot produce ordinary radiator, smiling home with our money under the guise of being local assemblers.

Farinto, who described the appointment of a new minister of Transportation at this time when the present government tenure is less than one year, as a setback, blamed the Federal Government for policy inconsistency policies and called for a review of the auto policy.

He said: “Just when we thought there is relief in the transportation ministry, the government decided to bring a new minister who will start learning again and commence visitation to acquaint himself with departments of the ministry in the next three months.

‘’ We are stagnant and not really moving forward with this retrogressing steps every time and it is encouraging Neocolonialism.

 ‘’The present Nigeria Customs Service (NCS) is moribund. So, the Federal Government in line with international best practices should orientate the management of Nigeria Customs Service (NCS), adding that, ‘’ the custom as it is now has continuously brought confusion to the trading community with its high-handedness.’’
