BY VICTOR BUORO, ABUJA – The National President of Importers Association of Nigeria (IMAN), Hon. Kingsley Chikezie, has called on the members of the association to consolidate on their position as agents of economic development in the country.

Speaking during a general meeting of IMAN recently, in Abuja, Chikezie noted that the motto of the association, ‘National Growth Through Commerce’, should be seen as a call to national duty.

The national president then urged members “to make integrity their watch word”, saying that a Board of Trustees (BOT) member of the association, Obong Patrick Udoh, “is a shining example” in this regard.

In an interview with journalists on the sideline of the meeting, Chikezie, assured that IMAN Special Taskforce is more than ever committed to, among other things, stop importation of contraband goods into the country.

In this vein, he stated that Importers Association of Nigeria is working with both local and international stakeholders with a view to achieving the mandate of the taskforce.

He expressed satisfaction over the impressive turnout of members during the meeting, and urged them to share the knowledge gained with members in local chapters across Nigeria.

In his remarks at the event, a frontline member of the association, DIG Sani Mohammed (retired), pledged his unrelenting support and that of other leaders of IMAN to move the association to greater heights.
