The National Association of Government Approved Freight Forwarders (NAGAFF) has called for the support of all Nigerians to the ease of doing business policy of the federal government.
The association which made this call through its National President, Chief Increase Uche said the need for every Nigerian to support the policy was what drove them to the office of the Coordinator Zone A of the Nigeria Customs Service (NCS) so as to partner with the service on the issue as it relates to international trade facilitation and customs formalities.
Uche noted that the recent ranking of Nigeria by the World Bank as having moved from 169th in 2016 to 145th in 2017 in the ease of doing business ranking was a clear case of the genuine intention of the federal government aimed at creating an enabling regulatory environment which had started yielding fruits.
“This is not a mean feat. It is therefore a challenge to all of us to support this laudable initiative and this is one of the reasons we cherish this opportunity to meet with you sir, today.
“Like I said before now, this visit has become necessary based on the current issue in connection with the Presidential Executive directive on ease of doing business and the need for relevant parties in transport and logistics and value chain to collaborate with the Nigeria Customs Service which is also a strategic partner in this project.
“NAGAFF after a critical analysis of the executive order from PEBEC under the Presidency muted the idea of reaching out to critical agencies of government with a view to cross fertilizing ideas on ways to ensure that the policy sees the light of the day.
“NAGAFF is at home with the federal government initiative which is simply someday removing all barriers and impediments militating against creating an enabling environment that will facilitate trade and attract investments into the country. We wish to reiterate our support for the success of the executive order”, Uche said.
