Stakeholders have said that airfreight industry can serve as catalyst in the diversification of the nation’s oil-dependent economy. 

Speaking at a one-day National Airfreight Summit in Ilorin recently, the Executive Secretary of the Nigerian Shippers’ Council, Mr. Hassan Bello, said that the business had the potential to become a means of expanding the nation’s non-oil export market to earn greater revenue for the government. 

“The airfreight sector holds great potentials for expansion of the nation’s export base in perishable, time-sensitive and high value goods. If properly developed, the sector has the potentials of boosting revenue base of government at all levels in the face of declining earnings from the oil sector.

Also speaking, the President, Kwara State Shippers Association, Alhaji Abdulkadir Alanamu, said that hinterland cargo/freight business must be promoted if the nation must develop progressively as those of developed economies.
