Also speaking, the newly inaugurated chairman of MMA, Olabode Akogun thanked the association and everyone who has contributed to the success of the association, charging the new executives to take on responsibility.
“I want to let the newly inaugurated executives know that we are not bossing our followers but actually executive servants who must be ready to serve the interest of the association,” he said.
He stressed that APFFLON has always been an advocate of ease of doing business both at the seaports and airports and assured that the chapter executives would continue to foster a better relationship with other associations and agencies at the ports.
