“Instead use your professional knowledge and competences to maximize collection of the much needed revenue to support government’s development initiatives,” he said.
He said by so doing the National Executive would do everything possible to defend and protect members from any unjustifiable victimization and harassment.
Mr. Asomaning gave the warning at the inauguration and induction into office of the executives of the Tema Branch of CUBAG, the swearing-in of the members of the National Executive Committee and Council and the promulgation of the revised CUBAG Constitution, 2016.
He said the national executive would not defend members who fraudulently misconducted themselves.
He urged the members to be abreast with technicalities inherent in customs laws, procedures and practices for them to be efficient and effective in their application of trade and commerce.
“The good customs broker must therefore have deep knowledge combined with co-operation, confidence, patience, firmness, fairness, courtesy, honesty, integrity to administer his or her duties,” he said.
Mr. Emmanuel Valentine Gadzekpo, Chairman, Tema Branch of CUBAG, called on members to jump on to the bandwagon to help uplift the image of the association.
He appealed to them to consolidate, protect and cherish the good structures put in place by the founding members.
“Let us acknowledge the sweat, tears, traumatic experiences they went through at the early stages of the formation of CUBAG. Let us not relent in our efforts to safeguard their achievements so that our quest for excellence does not fall apart,” Mr. Gadzekpo urged.
He gave the assurance that the new executive members would work hard to make CUBAG more vibrant.
