He urged the president-elect whom he referred to as an uncommon economic builder to pay more attention to the growth of the maritime economy, especially the freight and customs brokerage industry which according to him contributes a huge chunk to the federation account and the GDP as a whole.

According to Shittu, the Tinubu presidency would achieve much more if he paid closer attention at recalibrating the revenue components and giving the freight industry the proper autonomy and encouragement to improve on deliverables.

In a statement signed and made available to our reporter, Shittu said, “I consider it a privilege to join hundreds of millions of Nigerians home and abroad and well wishers in congratulating you on your victory at the 2023 presidential election.

“Your victory didn’t come on a platter of gold, in your characteristic manner, you prepared and fought well for it, alongside likeminded progressives through painstaking strategy, commitment and years of political bridge building.

“With your antecedent as an uncommon economic builder combined with your fine leadership acumen, we are hopeful that you will pay more than a passing interest on the maritime economy, which represents a bull walk of the national economy; in view of the changing fortunes of our crude staying economic power.

“As a customs broker l enjoin you most respectfully to consider giving the freight industry the right encouragement for operators to improve on revenue collection. Hitherto revenue brokers have been left with the feelings that they don’t matter despite being the real revenue collectors in all customs trade.

“As progressive players, revenue collectors can achieve much more if your administration offers them the right encouragement through the remodeling of retrogressive policies and retooling of the benefits dynamics; plus purposeful and mutually responsible stakeholders’ engagement that has assumed a master-servant status.

“The customs brokerage and freight industry looks forward to working harmoniously with your administration to raise the bar in maritime revenue generation through a purposeful, mutually beneficial relationship.”

“Congratulations once more as we wish you safe and strong; and wish your administration resounding successes in all fronts.”
