The National Executive Committee (NECOM) of the National Association of Government Approved Freight Forwarders (NAGAFF) has been dissolved. The National President of NAGAFF, Chief Increase Uche who made the announcement at an emergency meeting of the National Officers on Tuesday, August 29, 2017, said the dissolution was in line with the Constitution of the association.
According to a statement by the Secretary of the Board of Trustees, Dipo Olayoku, “Chief Uche expressed the appreciation of the Founder, Dr. Boniface Okechukwu Aniebonam and the BOT to the erstwhile National Officers for their selfless service to the Association, and wished them success in their future endeavours”.
He urged them to continue in their dedication to the cause of NAGAFF, and serve it in any capacity they might be called upon, adding that there will always be need to tap into their wealth of experience in the service of the association.
It was reported that members of the dissolved National Officers took turns to thank the Founder and the BOT, and pledged their continued loyalty to NAGAFF, while thanking the Association for the opportunity offered them to serve the great association at the highest level of administration.
Meanwhile, the National President has lifted the ban on electioneering campaign towards the 2018 elections into the Chapter Executives. Chief Uche urged whoever is interested in occupying any position in the Chapter Executives to go into the field to canvass for votes.
He however advised contestants to play by the rules and put the interest
of NAGAFF into account as they go about the campaigns. It would be recalled that the current Chapter Executives came into office in April 2014, after the March 2014 elections which brought into office for a 4-year tenure. According to the Constitution of NAGAFF, a member of the Chapter Exco is entitled to serve only two (2) terms of 4-years each.
It is mandatory that Electorates and Contestants must be bonifide members of
NAGAFF and Council for the Regulation of Freight Forwarding in Nigeria (CRFFN). Accordingly, all members must update their membership of NAGAFF and CRFFN.
