The   Founder of National Association of Government Approved Freight Forwarders (NAGAFF), Dr. Boniface Aniebonam has advised those vying for leadership positions  to go about it with decorum,  eschew desperation , hatred and bitterness.

Dr Aniebonam who doubles as the Founder of New Nigeria Peoples’Party (NNPP) gave the advice at the National Headquarters of NAGAFF in Lagos on the occasion of campaign rally organised by the  Vice Chairmanship contestant for Apapa chapter, of NAGAFF, Fwdr. Emeka Obinali(alias Omena-cash)  .

He enjoined th members of the Association contesting in the forthcoming chapter elections in the Western Zone  to keep to the rules of engagement, work together as children of God and keep the flag of the Association flying high, adding,
“Never allow yourself to be intimidated, defend your territory, I am here for you after God,” he stated.


Speaking also , the NAGAFF Electoral Commission (NECOM), Chairman,Engr. Chukwunonso Ejikeme used the forum to commend  ñewly matriculated students of NAGAFF Academy who are contesting in the election for the initiative  which according to him will  enhance their operations as freight forwarders.

Engr. Ejikeme  noted that NAGAFF is injecting  professionalism in leadership hence no member of the association would be allowed to contest any leadership position in NAGAFF without obtaining training  relevant to the  profession.

He however announced that chapter executive elections in Western Zone which was earlier scheduled for 5th  August, 2022 will now commence as from 8th August, 2022 with Apapa chapter taking the lead.

Adding his  voice, the  Acting Secretary General of  NAGAFF , Fwdr. Francis Omotosho commended Dr. Aniebonam for providing a platform for freight forwarders to improve themselves and advised the members to make use of the opportunity.

Speaking earlier,the Candidate vying for the Vice Chairmanship position, Apapa Chapter of NAGAFF,  Forwarder, Emeka Obinali  vowed to tow the path of the Founder of  NAGAFF, Dr. Boniface Aniebonam in taking NAGAFF to enviable height.

“We know  what is happening  in our Country today.  Customs  is  planning to go digital   and we in NAGAFF,  Apapa EXCOS will ensure our members comply with Customs in terms of single window, whereby we will have access to it, where our complaints would be met  for easy facilitation of cargo of  which the Nigerian Customs have promised before now,” he added.

He further said, “apart from that, so many people have been complaining  about dropping of container in APMT, when we come on board, by God’s grace all this things will stop. Also, many have been complaining about stealing of their cargos, carrying cargos for sampling illegally, we are to make sure that all these things stop.

“Founder has also provided a platform for freight forwarders to go to school . No time is late for anyone to go to school and we leaders that are coming from 100% Compliance Team, we are in NAGAFF Academy. Most of us are graduates but we have to be enlightened on the particular trade we are involved in. They will teach you things you don’t know about the job so that you can defend the job you are doing.

“I was among those who matriculated on Friday. And I saw what was there and I am very happy. By his grace , I have  already bought 5 forms for mt workers  because I want them to go to school too and that is what  am bringing on board for not only for NAGAFF Members but for all freight forwarders.”

On  sensitisation of members against importation of hard drugs and it’s consequences, Obinali who is also an Ambassador of NDLEA  said he would organise seminars in partnership with NDLEA  to educate them on the effects as well as  checkmate illegality in the system.
