Mr. Sam Nwakohu, the registrar of the CRFFN at the meeting.
Story by Dili Utomi.
The total amount of energy dissipated in the cource of organising the election into the board of the Council for the Registration of Freight Forwarding in Nigeria (CRFFN) seems to have affected some of the outcomes of the election at the ongoing election, but then again, like someone said,this seems to be the season of the women, what with the celebration of the International Women’s Day yesterday and the revisiting of the hitherto discarded bills meant to give women more say in the political realms of Nigeria.
The election into the board of the CRFFN is still going on as at the time of writing this report and a very surprising result has been turned out at the Abuja centre of the election. Princess Chi Eze, a female freight forwarder with the National Association of Government Approved Freight Forwarders (NAGAFF) has set a national record in the election as she won with a total vote of 224 out 427 votes with Muktar Yau hcoming a distant second with 91 votes. This is by far the highest number of vote for any individual in all the three centres of the election and makes her a record setter.
At the Lagos centre of the election holding at the Apapa GRA centre, a candidate of the Association of Nigeria Licensed Customs Agents (ANLC) and the vice president of the association, Dr. Kayode Farinto is one of the 5 winners so also are the national president of NAGAFF, Tochukwu Ezisi, Ndubuisi Ejikeme, Ifeanyi Ekemezie and Ibrahim Tanko of the same Association. The airport chapter of the Western Zone of the election is won by Timothy Awogbeni of the African Professional Freight Forwarding and Logistics Association of Nigeria (APFFLON)
At the Eastern Zone chapter election taking place in Port Harcourt, Henry Njoku and Kingsley Offor of the ANLCA won while Increase Uche of APFFLON returned unopposed for the Airport chapter of the Eastern Zone.
As at press time, 5 slots of the total of 15 seats into the board, 2 from the Eastern Zone and 3 from the Northern Zone are yet unknown as the total results have not been released. It is highly interesting to note that Princess Chi Eze has the record for the total number of votes garnered of all the candidates all over the country. This someone says is a real boost to the girl power in the month that celebrates women.
