Merit Awards Ceremony

Adegbuyi said this at the 2015 NIPOST Merit Awards Ceremony held at its headquarters in Abuja on Tuesday.


He said that the new NIPOST was being repositioned to effectively replicate the modern technology in postal services.


He said that technology was the order of the day, adding that  utilising it was the only way an organisation would meet its mandate in today’s world.

Universal Postal Union

“The Nigerian postal service is to embark on series of innovative programmes, deploy technologies and try to mobilise staff and motivate them in conjunction with our technical partners, the Universal Postal Union (UPU).

“Naturally, when you deploy innovative technology, it improves your operational efficiency. We are currently talking to experts on how to reduce current expenditure on the content of budget for the Nigerian postal service.

International Postal Service

“We are moving from analogue as UPU has recommended by the International Postal Service (IPS) to bear our procurement loss. We want to run NIPOST in a computerised manner.

“We will also very soon deploy technologies that will help us sell our stamps electronically and having a backing technology that will track all that we are selling,’’ he said.

Adegbuyi called on members of staff to make use of the technology at their disposal for better results in their schedules.

Speaking on the merit awards, he said that there was need to appreciate colleagues that had demonstrated commitment in their various fields of endeavour.

He noted that hard work had its reward and therefore called on others that did not receive any award to emulate the winners by proving their mettle.

“I want to congratulate all the award winners on behalf of myself and the staff of NIPOST and show our token appreciation to you for a job well done.

“I hope these will spur you to greater commitment to duty and performance; I also hope that this will encourage others to do their best in order to shine next time.

“Above all, even if management is not able to identify your good work, God, who knows and sees all things, will reward you appropriately,’’ he said.

He said that after 14 years of holding the award, it was time to review the process of selection to reinvigorate it and ensure that clear winners emerged without ambiguity.
