NAGGAF, 100% COMPLIANCE TEAM POISED FOR A WAR WITH PORT HANDLERS
By Ebenezer William
National Association of Government Approved Freight Forwarders and 100% Complance Team have sent a note of warning to Terminal Operators to rescind their 650% increase in port terminal fees or face hard times.
This warning was made in a press release issued by NAGGAF through it’s Coordinator, Hon. Ibrahim Tanko while addressing newsmen.
Tanko asserted that the economic situation in the country was already harsh and life is fast becoming unbearable for Nigerians, to now unilaterally increase port fees is tantamount to paralysing the economy.
NAGGAF and 100% Complaince Team in an open letter to the powers that be stressed that a quick intervention into this seamless increase is seriously needed to avoid a total collapse of the system.
It would be recalled that Port Terminal Operators jerked up fees in the port which is causing a big setback in business for freight forwarders.
