Following the dissolution of its National Executive Council (NEC), the National Association of Government Approved Freight Forwarders (NAGAFF) has inaugurated a new 40- member Council that will pilot its affairs.
Chairman, Board of Trustees of NAGAFF, Chidiebere Enelamah while addressing journalists at the association headquarters in Apapa yesterday said the new NEC was set up to restructure, reform and enhance administrative competence.
He said the 40 officers will run their appointed positions for some time before an election would be conducted next year noting that the new administration will be a transitional one.
He advised the new officers to strive to serve and showcase themselves in their new positions with a view to repositioning the association.
President of the association, Eugene Nweke advised the new NEC and members of the association to shun corrupt practices noting that an anticorruption committee has been set up by the association to address any issue bordering on corruption.
Speaking on behalf of the officers, newly appointed Deputy President of the association, Oluwole Adeyemi pledged that all the executives would work hard in the discharge of their responsibilities.
He also promised that the newly appointed officers would work to increase the association’s membership, conduct training and retraining of their members and also work to improve on the issue of welfare especially on insurance for members.
Founder of NAGAFF, Boniface Aniebonam on his part said the association is expanding its spread having commenced full operations at Katsina border.
He urged members to always see freight forwarding as a profession and should therefore work towards upgrading themselves by undertaking trainings related to transport and logistics management.
