“On Sunday, 1st December, 2019, there will be a Church Thanksgiving Service at Our Lady of Fatima Catholic Church, Aguda, Surulere. On Monday, we will pay a visit to General Hospital, Apapa to settle outstanding bills of some patients having difficulty in settling their bills”.
Ezisi noted that the event will be closed with an anniversary lecture to be delivered by the Chairman, Institute of Maritime Studies, University of Lagos, Prof. Iyiola Oni at Golden Tulip Hotel.
The former National President of NAGAFF, Mr. Eugene Nweke also noted the celebration is also to review several achievements the association has made in the past and also plan for the future.
“At 20, NAGAFF following the trend in the maritime environment has positioned itself, thinking beyond where we are coming from to where we will be going in another 20 years from now. You will all agree with me that NAGAFF at 20 is a milestone. We want to extend our Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) to outsiders. Before now, we conduct CSR with focus on NAGAFF members who have died and we extend support to their family members. Our CSR should be felt not just within but also outside.”
