The Governing Board of the Council for the Regulation of Freight Forwarding in Nigeria (CRFFN) has approved the appointment of Mrs Chinyere Uronta , the Director, Regulations and Enforcement as the new acting Registrar of the Council.

The Board has therefore directed the Registrar, Mr Sam Nwakohu, whose tenure expires on January 31 to hand over to Mrs Uronta.

The CRFFN Board led by Rtd. Col. Tsanni Abubakar took the decision during its recent emergency meeting held in Abuja.
In a communique issued at the end of the meeting, the Chairman, Committee on Media and Publicity of the Board, Hon. Muftahu Ya”u said the Council during the meeting considered a letter from the Registrar, Nwakohu, which was a notification of the expiration of his tenure.
The communiqué has it that on receiving the letter, the Chairman Governing Council, Dr. Abubakar Tsanni had to set up an Adhoc Committee to advise members on the way forward.
However, the Committee recommended that the Registrar should hand over to Mrs Uronta pending the appointment of a new Registrar.
Part of the communiqué reads, “Following the completion of its assignment and submitting its report, the Council, therefore, convened today in Abuja to deliberate on next line of action in respect of the committee’s recommendations. The Adhoc committee made important recommendations with reference to the provisions of Public Service Rules as well as the Council’s Act.
“The committee, however, recommended that in order to avoid a vacuum after the expiration of the Registrar’s tenure, the Council shall start making arrangement for a handover of the Registrar’s office to the most senior management staff of the Council. Similarly, the committee also recommends that the Appointment, Promotion and Discipline committee of the Council be directed to start making preparations for reappointment or appointment of a substantive Registrar.
“Finally, the Council’s Chairman, soon after the adoption, approval and ratification of the committee’s recommendations by members of the council, directed the following: 1) Arrangements for the Registrar’s handover to Mrs. Chinyere Uromta, Director, Regulations and Enforcement on 31st of January, 2023. 2) That Committee on Appointment Promotion and Discipline go ahead to start preparations for reappointment/appointment of a new Registrar.”
