The Founder/National President Oodua Descendant Freight Forwarders Association (ODFFA) ODFFA Hon. Prince Olusegun Ademola Adefioye has urged freight forwarders in the country to be honest in with the declaration at all times.
Addressing journalists in Lagos today, Adefioye reiterated the determination of OODFA to ensure that members are abreast with the day freight forwarding practice in the world.
He also used the occasion to announce the celebration of the fifth Anniversary of Oodua Freight Forwarders Day of the Oodua Descendant Freight Forwarders Association (ODFFA) which is scheduled for Thursday, May 27, 2021, at Welcome Event Centre, Airport Road, Oshodi, Lagos.
The Oodua Descendant Freight Forwarders Association (ODFFA) is a socio-cultural platform founded five years ago to promote the interest and growth of all Yoruba sons and daughters who practice freight forwarding in the maritime and aviation industry in Nigeria. It is also founded to celebrate and reward professional excellence. And since our inception, ODFFA has organized conferences and workshops/seminars to educate and sensitize members and even non-members on their rights and privileges and modern freight forwarding practice.
Adefioye said the Oodua Freight Forwarders Day is an annual event and this is the fifth edition by ODFFA to celebrate and reward professional excellence among Yoruba freight forwarders. And to reward non-professionals who have contributed to the growth of the profession and Yoruba development in Nigeria. We want to inform you that no fewer than three non-Yoruba freight forwarders have been given awards.
Apart from rewarding, the Day provides an opportunity for us as an association to appraise our growth as Yoruba in the freight forwarding profession in Nigeria and look for a way to improve.
The event which is billed to be a cultural celebration has a lot of personalities shortlisted to be honoured with merit award.
The Guest Speaker of the Day is Fwrd Francis Omotosho, the Registrar of NAGAFF Academy. He will speak on a topic that has to do with Yoruba and their growth in the freight forwarding profession as the day won’t be an award presentation alone.
