NAGAFF Chieftain Tackles Ex-President Over Tsanni’s Appointment As CRFFN Board Chairman


Tanko, Chairman, NAGAFF 100 Percent Compliance Team


An elected member of the governing board of the Council for the Regulation of Freight Forwarding in Nigeria (CRFFN), Alhaji Tanko Ibrahim, has disagreed with the former president of the National Association of Government Approved Freight Forwarders (NAGAFF), Eugene Nweke, over appointment of Abubakar Tsanni as board chairman of the council.


Recall that Nweke has disagreed with the former minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi, over alleged imposition of Tsanni as the Chairman of the Board.


But, in a chat with BUSINESSINSIDERNG, Tanko, who also doubles as the Chairman, 100 percent compliance team of NAGAFF, disclosed that such insinuation of imposition was a phantom imagination of people who were misinformed.


According to him, the emergence of Tsanni as chairman and Njoku as vice was done by consensus, adding that there were 32 members present when the minister came in to address them quickly because of his other exigencies of duty.


He, however, revealed that the decision to have the chairman and his vice as consensus candidates had already been reached before the meeting with Amaechi.


“We the NAGAFF people all agreed that we should support Abubakar Tsanni, there is therefore no iota of truth in the insinuation in a section of the media that there was imposition”.


“There are no issues here, it was an agreement by all of us. what we arrived at was what played out. Nobody opposed what the Minister said, that was exactly what happened, it was a popular decision before he left for another meeting as he told us earlier”, he said.


On the issue of inauguration of the newly elected board, Tanko said there was no inauguration, pointing out that they only called for a meeting, not inauguration.


“The meeting as I explained was for us to endorse or reject those appointments not for inauguration or swearing in as wrongly reported. It was only the Director, Legal Services of the Ministry of Transport, who told us that they will call us for the inauguration ceremony and swearing in soon, not the minister,” he stated.
