Freight Forwarders Threaten Court Action


The Central Working Committee of Freight Forwarders in Nigeria through their legal  adviser, Barrister Okechukwu Ofodile, have said that any moment from now, they would be  heading to the court.

He said the CRFFN, since inception two years ago, have been meeting without forming the  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 the  members, the founder of NAGAFF, National Association of Government Approved Freight  Forwarders and their consultant, Dr. Boniface Anile Bonam, said they were fully ready to  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. The  members’ money has not been properly accounted for and we are saying that they should  tell us what they have done with our monies.”

Boniface said the composition of the council’s members is unjustifiable and by its  constitution, all the segments of the freight forwarders are expected to be fully  represented.

He stated that it was a wrong for those in the council to believe that the council was a  parastatal or a government agency.
