The impasse that has remained the lot of the election into the board of the Council for the Regulation of Freight Forwarding in Nigeria (CRFFN) seems not to have an end in sight. This is because the decision by the Ministry of Transportation to recognise individual participation in the proposed election rather than give the registered associations the right to field their members for the election as against the collective agreement of these associations does not go down well with the concerned associations.
The founder of NAGAFF, Dr. Boniface Okey Aniebonam in a press conference at the NAGAFF secretariat in Apapa yesterday lambasted the action of the Ministry in recognising the individuals above the associations in a bid to organise the election and said that it is tantamount to having the election rigged before it takes place.
Dr. Aniebonam contended that the CRFFN is not a parasternal of the Transportation Ministry and that even though the case to prove that is still in the court, but as law abiding citizens, NAGAFF is playing along with the status quo while the court case subsists.
He said that it is rather curious that the Ministry is more interested in recognising individuals over associations in spite of all discussions between the Ministry and all the registered associations. He said that he does not expect NAGAFF, ANLCA, ARFFN or any of the other registered associations to take part in the oncoming election because of the fact that they had had some level of consultations and agreement as far as the election is concerned.
