RT. HON. CHIBUIKE ROTIMI AMAECHI, HON. MINISTER FOR TRANSPORT.
The new Board members were elected in March 2022, after a protracted impasse triggered by the proposed 6:6:1:1:1 representation formula. However, the formula was set aside by the Supervisory ministry as the election was made open to allow for independent candidacy.
Meanwhile, the National President of APFFLON, Otunba Frank Ogunojemite, in the message, expressed optimism that the newly inaugurated CRFFN Governing Board members would not rubbish the essence of the Board, tasking them on selfless and responsive representation.

Furthermore, Ogunojemite advised the new members to professionally and dispassionately chart a new course for Freight Forwarding Subsector while using the available opportunity to unify freight forwarders regardless of the associations they belong to. He went ahead to felicitate the newly inaugurated members on their election into the Board
On POF, Ogunojemite advised that the Act establishing CRFFN be reviewed since there was no provision for Practitioners Operation Fee (POF) in the Act. He thereby urged the Supervisory Ministry to make sure its directives are in line with the provisions of the Act in other to avert crises in the subsector.
