The Dispute Resolution Centre of the Abuja Chamber of Commerce and Industry (ACCI) is now a national Centre for all Chamber movements in Nigeria.
This development follows the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding(MoU) between ACCI and NACCIMA, a statement by the ACCI, Media/Strategy Officer, Olayemi John-Mensah disclosed.
The first deputy president ACCI and Chairman, ACCI DRC, Chief Emeka Obegbolu signed on behalf of ACCI while the president, NACCIMA, Hajia Saratu Iya Aliyu signed for NACCIMA.
Going by this MoU, the ACCI DRC is to now serve as Dispute Resolution Centre for all Nigerian Chambers of Commerce and Industry.
It will be recalled that NACCIMA at its last council meeting adopted two centres of AACI as national centres. The centres are the DRC and the Policy Advocacy Centre. While the DRC MoU has been signed, work is ongoing to finalise MoU on the policy Centre.
In a related development, ACCI added another cap to its feathers as the umbrella body for Chamber movement in Nigeria, as NACCIMA Tuesday conferred a special award on the foremost Chamber.
Other top management leaders and organisations were also honoured at the events.
ACCI was granted the award of excellence for its innovative chambers development and exceptional contributions to the growth of commerce and industry in Nigeria.
