As NAGAFF appoints ambassadors

Dr. Boniface Aniebonam, Founder of the National Association of Government Approved Freight Forwarders (NAGAFF), has disclosed that 1500 budding Nigerian youths have been empowered in freight forwarding by the association toward growing future freighters for the nation.

Dr. Boniface Aniebonam who said the youths are doing relatively well in the freight forwarding business said youth empowerment is one of the strategies adopted by NAGAFF to add value to the growth of the nation’s maritime industry and the national economy.

Aniebonam stated this in Apapa, Lagos, last week, when the association presented the ambassadorial certificates to some youths it appointed as its ambassadors. He noted that the selected youths are into music, entertainment, sports and freight forwarding.

According to him, ‘’we have taken freight forwarding to the next level as we have trained over 1500 youths in freight forwarding who are doing well in the business and adding value to the growth of the nation. At NAGAFF, we are interested in young ones, grow them to be useful for themselves and the nation.’’

He advised them to respect the law of the land and charged them to play their parts to make the nation great, sounding a note of warning to them be of good behaviours or lose the ambassadorial appointment.

Earlier in his presentation of the ambassadors, Elder Simeon Nwaonu, Deputy National President, NAGAFF Headquarters, said NAGAFF as an association recognizes, builds and supports talents to grow, saying that the appointed ambassadors must encourage others to engage in meaningful ventures.

According to Nwaonu, ‘’NAGAFF is revolutionary in thinking, character and determination and thus champions the peaceful co-existence of Nigerians through empowerment of the youths as Dr. Boniface Aniebonam is concerned about the wellbeing of youths contributing to the growth of the society.’’

Nwaonu noted that the association would not hesitate to withdraw the ambassadorial certificates from the ambassadors if found not acting in line with the rules and objectives of the office.

The certificates were presented to the ambassadors by Mr. Chidiebere Emenalo, Chairman, NAGAFF Board of Trustees, who advised them to be of good behaviour.

The ambassadors are: Prince Ndubuisi, Ikechukwu Ezegha, Sunday Bassey, Emmanuel Ohanusi Chinozo, Cryil Uzoma Deala, Adeoye Abiodun and Mohammed Abdullahi.

Speaking on behalf of the ambassadors, Prince Ndubuisi thanked NAGAFF for counting them worthy of its ambassadors and promised to be of good behaviour and promote the association in positive lights.
