The Registrar, Council for the Regulation of Freight Forwarding in Nigeria (CRFFN), Barr. Samuel Nwakohu has said that the former Executive Secretary/CEO of the Nigerian Shippers’ Council (NSC), Barr. Hassan Bello will continue to be remembered for his services to freight forwarding, logistics and supply chain in Nigeria.
The Registrar who made this assertion today during the reception held in honour of the former NSC boss by the National Association of Government Approved Freight Forwarders (NAGAFF) in Lagos noted that Hassan Bello as a legal officer at the Nigerian Shippers’ Council played very strategic roles towards the emergence of the freight forwarding regulatory body – the Council for the Regulation of Freight Forwarding in Nigeria (CRFFN).
According to him, “When he eventually emerged as the Executive Secretary/CEO of the Nigerian Shippers’ Council, he continued to support the freight forwarding cause throughout his tenure to the extent that he was the rallying point of many freight forwarders.”
Represented by the Head, Education and Training, CRFFN, Barr. Alban Igwe, the CRFFN boss observed that Hassan Bello understood the critical role of freight forwarding to shippers and national economy and in particular the role of freight forwarding in improving the logistics performance index and ultimately, national competitiveness.
“He is a good team player and maintained a very cordial relationship with CRFFN throughout his tenure. It is important to note that at the heat of the Covid-19 restrictions, Nigerian Shippers’ Council under his leadership provided the rallying ground for the Maritime Task Force which he voluntarily yielded the Chairmanship to my good self with the sole aim of providing maximum support to freight forwarders towards uninterrupted forwarding services.
“The Council for the Regulation of Freight Forwarding in Nigeria (CRFFN) felicitates with Barr. Hassan Bello on this auspicious occasion of his celebration by the National Association of Government Approved Freight Forwarders (NAGAFF) and by extension, the entire freight forwarding community. This celebration underscores the importance of the celebrant to freight forwarders.
“On behalf of the freight forwarding community and the Council for the Regulation of Freight Forwarding in Nigeria, I wish him a brighter future and many more celebrations”, he concluded.
