BEARS: Tardy APFFLON!
African Association of Professional Freight Forwarders and Logistics in Nigeria (APFFLON) entertained journalists as well as its members with a delicacy of tardiness last week.
The event was an inauguration ceremony for four chapters of the association and the programme was scheduled to commence by 10am, yet it didn’t commence until 1:19pm.
According to the APFFLON President, Otunba Frank Ogunojemite the delay was to allow the inaugurated members who pleaded for more time to get to the venue as they were converging from diverse locations in Lagos State.
While the APFFLON boss passionately apologized to guests and newsmen, the truth is that all guests were preinformed about the event and if an offer of N10million cheque was to be collected by those who arrived before 10am, no one would have arrived late.
It is pertinent that APFFLON works towards correcting this scourge of tardiness.
