The Central Working Committee of Freight Forwarders in Nigeria through their legalÂ adviser, Barrister Okechukwu Ofodile, have said that any moment from now, they would beÂ heading to the court.
He said the CRFFN, since inception two years ago, have been meeting without forming theÂ required quorum and it is against the Act of the council.
In his own contributions to the non-compliance of the CRFFN in the composition of theÂ members, the founder of NAGAFF, National Association of Government Approved FreightÂ Forwarders and their consultant, Dr. Boniface Anile Bonam, said they were fully ready toÂ go to court for interpretation of certain aspects of the council act.
According to the consultant, “the council belongs to us and not the government. TheÂ members’ money has not been properly accounted for and we are saying that they shouldÂ tell us what they have done with our monies.”
Boniface said the composition of the councilâ€™s members is unjustifiable and by itsÂ constitution, all the segments of the freight forwarders are expected to be fullyÂ represented.
He stated that it was a wrong for those in the council to believe that the council was aÂ parastatal or a government agency.
