The tenure of Nwakoha had expired on Tuesday, January 31, 2023, and Uromta as ranking member of the CRFFN Management was appointed to replace him in acting capacity.
This is contained in a statement signed by the Chairman, Committee on Media and Publicity of the CRFFN, Alhaji Muftahu Ya’u, on Thursday, in Abuja, Nigeria’s Federal Capital Territory (FCT).
Uromta said at the hand-over ceremony that she thrust would focus on transparency and enhancing collaboration between the CRFFN and freight forwarders.
The CRFFN, according to her, will continue to prioritise training of freight forwarders to ensure they are at par with their counterparts in other parts of the world, enhancing professionalism and revenue generation for the country.
“We shall cut through the fog of mistrust and resort to intensive dialogue and reconciliation with all concerned parties including members of staff and the freight forwarders.
“We will endeavour to make wise choices and works transparently, flexibly and honestly as we take cognisance of the fact that members of staff are the Primary key to the actualisation of the Council’s success.
“Hence, we solicit for their cooperation in the bid to speedily reposition the council and the industry at large, bearing in mind that if we work together as one unit we would attain the desired progress.
“We shall be there as the management to guide and supervise our staff and other stakeholders’’, she said.
Uromta equally appreciated the CRFFN’S Governing Council under the leadership of the Chairman, retired Colonel Abubakar Tsanni, who she described as an indefatigable leader that had guided the Council on a path of progress and notable accomplishments.
She also expressed gratitude to Minister of Transportation Mu’azu Jaji Sambo and the Permanent Secretary of the Ministry, Dr, Magdalene Ajani, for prioritising the ideals of the CRFFN.
Earlier, the Chairman, Media Committee on the CRFFN Governing Council conveyed the commendation of the Governing Chairman on the emergence of Uromta as Acting Registrar.
“This event is for handing over the administrative affairs of CRFFN from the outgoing registrar, Nwakohu, whose tenure expired on January 31. He handed over to the most senior management staff of the Council, which is Uromta,’’ Ya’u said.
