Caretaker Committee Chairman of the Tin Can Island Port Chapter of the National Association of Government Approved Freight Forwarders (NAGAFF), Chief Azubike Ekweozor, has indicated interest in contesting for the position of substantive chairman of the chapter.
Ekweozor, speaking exclusively to SHIPS & PORTS DAILY during the flag off of his campaign at the port said his performance in the little time he has spent as the caretaker committee chairman of the chapter has beat the performance of other chapter chairmen and that has made members of Tin Can NAGAFF and stakeholders around the port environment persuade him to vie for the position to become the substantive chairman.
“With the level transformation that has happened in Tin Can chapter of the association since my takeover of the association in September 2013, I know that the people will not regret voting me into power as the chairman.
“Before I came as the caretaker chairman, the chapter was messed up by the dissolved executive, when I came, I repositioned the association, stabilise things because I knew I was called upon to rescue a dying mission. So immediately I resumed office, I introduced human relationship in the association and also let people know that the relationship between agents and customs officers should be like that of a husband and wife.
“Even ANLCA members are happy with my administration and have also advised me to contest as a substantive chairman because of the cordial relationship we enjoyed in the port,” he said.
