The Association of Nigerian Licensed Customs Agents (ANLCA) has postponed the planned strike over the 15 per cent National Automotive Council (NAC) levy due to the upcoming long holidays.
Taskforce Chairman of ANLCA, Alhaji Rilwan Amuni, said this in a circular obtained by newsmen Monday 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.
It would be recalled that ANLCA had on Friday announced plans to embark on a one-day warning strike.
According to reports, the circular said that the ‘warning strike’ had been put on hold due to upcoming long holidays to mark Workers’ Day and Sallah celebrations.
