By Mcanthony Onuoha
The heart desire of every human is to belong to a society where there is no reason whatsoever to strip anyone of dignity or push them off the broad street of freedom.
According to Fwrd. Mrs. Pat Agboje, the MD/CEO, PEFAG GLOBAL SERVICES NIGERIA LIMITED, the above axiom is the prime reason why National Association of Government Approved Freight Forwarders (NAGAFF) is not just an association but a home for Freight Forwarders as well as a model for professional associations. NAGAFF, as an organized body is recommended for those who are very keen on self reinvention and actualization. A good number of people have aligned professionally by tapping into the vision of the Founder, Dr. Boniface Aniebonam who saw the need of establishing NAGAFF Academy where “Clearing Agents” are transformed into seasoned Freight Forwarders. Not only that, NAGAFF is just One Big Family and that is why there has been steady progress in every of its departments from Headquarters to Chapter level”.
Fwdr. Mrs. Pat Agboje is a dedicated member of NAGAFF Muritala Muhammed International Airport ( MMIA) Chapter.
Mrs Agboje, at a point had to leave the Association for reasons best known to her, and joined some agreived members to form another association. She came back to NAGAFF a couple of months ago when she realized that there is “no place like home”.
In a telephone chat with the Prestige Blended Magazine Online, Mrs Pat Agboje commended the peaceful conduct of the just concluded Chapter elections. In her words, “the just concluded elections at Chapter level is an attestation to the fact that the association is guided by enviable professional template, kudos to the President of NAGAFF, Chief Tochukwu Ezisi and the Electoral Umpire and his team.”
“I want to eulogize our indefatigable National Women Leader, my mentor and role model, Deaconess Kate Oghagbon for her doggedness and motherly disposition. She has really engendered love and unity among NAGAFF women. We shall continue to appreciate her efforts while asking God Almighty to grant her the grace for longevity in good health, happiness and all round prosperity.”
“NAGAFF Women are known for their industry, professionalism, courage and community spirit, I make bold to say that our women maintain high level of self discipline in their professional field.”
” At MMIA Chapter, our women Coordinator , Mrs Agnes Anuhi is also amazing, she has very well at the Chapter, she plays a key role in keeping the women together and also contributes immensely to the success of the Chapter leadership.l must also commend the Chapter Chairman, Fwdr. Chief Udoka, for his efforts in providing leadership as l also congratulate him on his reelected for a second term. I urge him to do the best he can to reposition the Chapter for greater glory.”
” I want to also appreciate Chairman Emeritus of NAGAFF, MMIA Chapter, our leader, Dr. Segun Musa, the BoT Chairman of NAGAFF, Elder Chidiebere Enalama, and our Deputy National President(DNP), Mr. Simeon Nwonu, the National Coordinator, NAGAFF 100% Compliance Team, Alhaji Ibrahim Tanko, the National Treasure, Fwdr Ms. Melody Best Obehi, National Executive Officers of NAGAFF, and every member of our great Association both at National and Chapter levels.”
“I urge everyone to be good ambassador wherever duty calls, we must always do our best to protect the image of the association and comply with trade rules and import guidelines.”
” I advise women to be more active in the industry, it is time for them to courageously showcase their ingenuity, the time some professional fields were described as “male dominated ” is gone, women have taken their destinies in their hands, and quite a good number of us out there are doing exploits, we call the shots in our areas of specialty. So l urge every woman to be strong and of good courage.”
” finally, l will not fail to appreciate our amiable Founder, Chief Dr. Boniface Aniebonam who tenaciously pursued and actualized his vision for freight forwarders, NAGAFF is indeed a lasting legacy, the compendium of professional icons will not comprehensive without his name being colourfully and prominently written, may God Almighty protect him and grant him long life in good health.”
