The newly-appointed Postmaster General (PMG) of the Federation/CEO, Nigerian Postal Service (NIPOST), Dr Ismail Adewusi, has promised to plug all revenue leakages in the organisation for effective service delivery.
Adewusi made the promise while addressing the staff members when he assumed duty at the Corporate Headquarters of NIPOST in Abuja, a statement issued by NIPOST’s General Manager, communications, Mr Franklyn Alao, said on Thursday.
According to Alao the new PMG held a maiden Management and staff meeting with members of the organisation on Dec. 31, where he made known his intention to properly harness the resources available to NIPOST.
He also promised to create an impact in the first 100 days of his assumption of office.
He stated that the PMG harped on the directives of the federal government and promised to find solutions to the problems associated with the use of Point of Sale (POS) machines in transactions.
”It is important to implement the Minister of Communications and Digital Economy’s directives on the use of POS for all transactions across Post Offices in Nigeria in order to block revenue leakages, ” he said.
He promised to address the enormous challenges of infrastructural decay and low staff morale due to poor staff welfare bedeviling the organisation.
The statement noted that the PMG was appointed on Dec. 24, 2019 by President Muhammadu Buhari to replace Mr Bisi Adegbuyi, who had served the organisation since August 2016.
Alao said that members of staff took turns to assure the Postmaster General of maximum cooperation and promised to put all hands on deck in moving NIPOST forward.
NAN reports that Adewusi is a trained Economist from Keio University, Tokyo. He is a former banker and a former finance commissioner in Lagos state.
