48 hours cargo clearance achievable, says NAGAFF founder


LAGOS – Chief Boniface Aniebonam, the founder, National Association of Government Approved Freight Forwarders (NAGAFF), on Thursday said that 48 hours cargo clearance was achievable if port operators complied with clearing procedures.
Aniebonam spoke during the swearing-in and reception for NAGAFF after being declared the winner of the 2014 maritime league held in Lagos.
He urged the newly elected chapel executives of the association to encourage all members to always engage in genuine declaration to reduce time of doing business in Nigerian ports.
“If you want to be friends with the government, you have to obey the rules of the land because laws are made to be obeyed.
“This is not the time to blame anybody but it is time to cooperate with the government and to lift the maritime industry to a greater height,” Aniebonam said.
He advised all the members of the association to be mindful of disseminating irrelevant information through the media to the public.
Also speaking, Chief Eugene Nweke, President of NAGAFF, said that the association had a successful election few months ago.
Nweke advised the six chapters of NAGAFF within the maritime industry to promote the objectives and functions of the association.
“NAGAFF is one of the associations which takes professionalism as top priority.
“That is why we engage in continuous professional training as mandated by the Council for the Regulation of Freight Forwarding in Nigeria,” he said.
Nweke said that no fewer than 65 per cent of the NAGAFF members were presently undergoing training at reputable maritime institutions. (NAN)
