He further 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 with 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.
