According to Farinto, the annual general meeting  held in December 2013 at Owerri, Imo State, were attended by all ANLCA members where the election of the board members were conducted both virtually and physically.

He stated that nine  prominent  registered members of the association were elected into the board for a period of six  years single tenure as contained in the ANLCA's amended constitution

 Others are Ahalisa Ally, Abel Timothy Ayakunle and Chief Igwe Christian Odinaka.

He informed that ANLCA National Executive Committee, Board of Trustees  and other members  were able to get the Corporate Affairs Commission registration of the new ANLCA board members, on 7th of September, 2022.

Farinto declared that  with the new development, all stakeholders are advised to disregard any other group or individuals that are parading themselves as ANLCA board members.

" While we don't want to over flogged the issues in our association being perpetrated by expelled members of the association, we want to assure Maritime stakeholders, the general public and members that the ANLCA leadership  will follow the rule of law and stick to ANLCA constitution as a status symbol of all registered associations.

"ANLCA NECOM is also aware of the expelled members and their cohorts circulating letters of introduction to Stakeholders for recognition. While we are still investigating the matter, we want to state that such letters do not and cannot have the backing of the ANLCA NECOM, but we promised to bring the impersonators to book in due course," the acting president narrated.

He stated however, that in the spirit of reconciliation, NECOM is ready to discuss with all aggrieved members so  that they can move the association forward, charging all to put hands on deck and jettison any selfish interest for the overall interest of  members and the association.
