The Professional Carpenters and Furniture-makers Association (P.C.F.A.) had been operating under different names in the various local governments in Lagos State as far back as the 1930s.
However in the 1990s, Mr. Adekunle Adedeji of Alapere organized a graduation ceremony for one of his apprentices and invited the various Carpentry Masters in Ketu and Alapere to attend. It was during this meeting that the idea was floated to establish an association. This decision was based on the fact that the Carpentry Masters in the area were all friends and the defunct carpentry association in the area could not be traced. Hence on July 2nd 1991, the first state executive election and inauguration of the PCFA took place.
The P.C.F.A. operates a 3-tier government similar to the Federal Government of Nigeria i.e.:
- Zone (Community and Grass root): i.e. Mile 12, Ketu, Alapere, Owode, Ikosi, Shangisha etc
- Branch (Local Government Level): i.e. Kosofe
- State: the highest decision making body comprises of State executives, state elders and 3 representatives of each branch
PCFA operates in all local governments of Lagos State except Badagry. In addition the association has 5-30 zones per branch with each zone having between 20-100 members.
