By Abiodun OBA

The Nigerian Customs Service (NCS) organised freight forwarders’ training is a confirmation of the advent of the renewed hope mantra of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu on freight forwarding practice in Nigeria.

The President, National Association of Government Approved Freight Forwarders (NAGAFF), Mr. Tochukwu Ezisi, posited while commending and expressing confidence in the leadership of the NCS at the closing ceremony of the weeklong training on emerging trends in customs clearance processes in Lagos.

Ezisi, expressed gratitude to the NCS for the executive training of NAGAFF members and other sister associations, noting that the training was long overdue.

NAGAFF President said, “I can’t remember when last freight forwarders got this kind of training from the NCS. The current CGC has renewed freight forwarders’ hope in the ability of Customs to act with a sense of social responsibility.

“The event, which was very informative, educative and interactive, give freight forwarders opportunity to discuss and address operational challenges with key players in the NCS.

“Some of the topics discussed include new cargo clearance procedures, cargo inspection, fast track, the new CEMA Act amongst others.

“The training gave deep insight into customs dispute resolution mechanisms and export processes. It also addressed reasons for delays in the operations of terminal operators and shipping companies which leads to demurrage.”

The Deputy Comptroller General, AG Saidu, appreciated the Comptroller General of Customs, Comptroller Bashir Adewale Adeniyi MFR, for giving the Service the guidance to organise the workshop and appreciated freight forwarders for showing up for the event.
