Association of Nigerian Licensed Customs Agents to embark on one-day warning strike on April 25, over introduction of 15 per cent National Automotive Council (NAC) levy.

The Association of Nigerian Licensed Customs Agents (ANLCA) says they will embark on a one-day warning strike on April 25, over the introduction of 15 per cent National Automotive Council (NAC) levy.
Taskforce Chairman of ANLCA, Alhaji Rilwan Amuni, said this in a circular obtained by newsmen on Friday in Lagos.
The levy was recently introduced by the Nigeria Customs Service (NCS) on used imported vehicles, a decision which didn’t go down well with clearing agents in the country’s maritime sector.
The agents argued that the NAC levy is mostly meant for new vehicles, questioning the rationale behind the introduction of the duty on used vehicles.
The circular said that the warning strike was a fall out of consultations among critical stakeholders.
