Unless certain sections of the Customs and Excise Management Act are included in the on-going plans to amend the law it may be in conflict with the Act which established the Council for the Regulation of Freight Forwarding in Nigeria (CRFFN), so says the National Association of Government Approved Freight Forwarders (NAGAFF).
Raising alarm in Lagos last week while fielding questions from members of the Maritime Reporters’ Association of Nigeria (MARAN), the founder of NAGAFF, Dr Boniface Aniebonam stated that some sections of the CRFFN law should be strengthened.
Dr Aniebonam argued that “the concept of the Council for the Regulation of Freight Forwarding in Nigeria was specifically to address the issue of professionalism through capacity building and training and some measure of independence just like any other professional body”, but expressed belief that some sections of CEMA would be amended to allow the CRFFN act to function effectively.
