    Postcodes implementation to boost online trade, growth–By  Tolu Aiyegbusi, News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) 

    Postcodes implementation to boost online trade, growth–By  Tolu Aiyegbusi, News Agency of Nigeria   Postcodes Implementation to unlock online trade, growth By  Tolu Aiyegbusi, News Agency of Nigeria Reputed to be Africa’s largest economy, with over 200 million people, Nigeria is noted to have a poor addressing system that allows only few persons receive their parcels at home especially in remote areas.

    The Nigerian Postal Services (NIPOST), has been working to advance e-commerce and improve its postal system to catch up with the changing business environment and competition posed by technological advancement.

    NIPOST is now set to introduce a digital postcode system where parcels and mails are properly addressed with the right postcodes thereby raising home deliveries within the next few years.

    The postal agency said the new system, apart from being more accurate than traditional street addresses, was simpler than landmark-based directions, easier to remember and communicate with online.

    Nigeria’s Postmaster General, Dr Ismail Adewusi , said NIPOST was pleased to collaborate with the National Population Commission (NPC), to adopt a digital addressing solution with the huge potential to unlock opportunities.

    Adewusi added that the digitalised postcode system would speed up economic activities and improve the ease of doing business in Nigeria.

    He also said better addressing was key to NIPOST’s agenda, which aims to transform, innovate, and deliver more services to more people all over the country.

    According to him, “ NIPOST was embarking on an initiative to ensure that every street has a name and every house had a recognizable number to facilitate government operations for the community towards a digital economy.

    “ This will also simplify delivery of products and services from individuals and companies when the owner of the house orders.

    “ The intention is to reach out to the people everywhere, in every local government and remote areas of the country.

    “ Even when an individual has a problem like a fire incident, then help would be easy to implement, because of street names, house numbers and postcodes.

    ’’ With hundreds of parcels and couriers handled daily across the country, financial analysts say the e-commerce market is currently worth billions of dollars and there is still huge potential for growth.

    Mr. Oluwatoyin Dada, A financial engineer said with improvements in infrastructure and investments in innovation around payment systems and a reliable addressing system, Postal services have a critical role in building a strong economy.

    Dada added that NIPOST is equally focused on the future, and taking steps to modernise and grow their capacity and range of services in the e-commerce ecosystem.

    Dada also said that the use of postcodes would reduce online fraud as there were unfaithful people who abused lack of clear addresses to commit fraud since they could not be traced.

    Mr. Silvanus Tembe, who trades in clothes in Lagos is one of the many owners of online businesses that rely on day to day communication with customers in many parts of the city.

    He said he has been spending a lot of money and airtime to direct a delivery person when sending a product to a destination because most customers do not have clear addresses.

    “ Once postcodes are well established, a driver can deliver the product without much hassle to the home or office of the customer, hence less delivery costs,” he said.

    Ms Hauwa Goro , a seller of aromatherapy products said the postcode development would simplify delivery of her products because most of her customers want it delivered to them at home.

    “ Some of my customers addresses cannot be found easily making them cancel their orders and coming in person due to the nature of my products.

    “ Implementing postal codes at this time will be right, that means the businesses will grow more as deliveries will become easier.

    “ Delivery charges will drop, time will be saved and extra mobile costs will drop,” the businesswoman said.

    She said, ”if NIPOST were to rollout digital addresses countrywide, then this would for sure help the Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) and boost online businesses.

    ” The News Agency of Nigeria reports that postal code also known as postcode refers to a group of numbers or letters which are added to a postal address to assist the purpose of sorting mails and parcels.

    The new Nigerian Postal Codes are alphanumeric; web-based and can be used on Geographic Information Systems (GIS).

    The code of each region in Nigeria is captured in the postcode, while the second and third digits when combined with the first, make up the dispatch district for easy delivery of items.

    NIPOST partner Egyptian firm on logistics, job creation

    The Nigerian Postal Service, NIPOST, has signed a partnership with the Egyptian company, e-Gate Egypt, on the digital transformation of logistics and last-mile delivery chain services.

    Post Director General PMG NIPOST Dr. Ismail Adewusi said this in Abuja on Monday when e-gate Egypt CEO Essam Alsaghir visited NIPOST headquarters to consummate the partnership.

    Last-mile delivery is the movement of goods from the warehouse, the shelf, or the transportation hub to their final delivery destination or the customer's door, professionally known as "the last mile."

    Adewusi, who said the partnership would help address infrastructure gaps at the agency, added that it would also help job creation.

    According to the PMG`, the digital transformation of mail implies that from one end to the other, the customer can track the movement of his mail and his packages.

    “I think this is an area where we have really lacked some form of competitive advantage.

    "The signing of this agreement will also help us contribute to the vision of President Muhammadu Buhari's administration of lifting 100 million people out of poverty in the next 10 years."

    He said that with the agreement, NIPOST could involve many young people, thus increasing job opportunities in the country.

    Mr. Alsaghir, explaining the importance of the agreement, said that the digital transformation of NIPOST's operations would fundamentally change the way postal services are delivered in Nigeria.

    “When the agreement is implemented, the entire mail delivery system will be automated through the controller's mobile app. Customers can track the movement of their packages through a mobile application.

    "Our partnership with NIPOST will provide our customers with new technology and mobile application for a safe, easy and fast way to reach their customers not only for the postal service but for other transactions," said Mr. Alsaghir.

    In addition, he said that the association would help generate money-making opportunities for many Nigerians, particularly young people.

    “It is an income-generating opportunity, where citizens' vehicles will be used. Now, every citizen with a vehicle will be a potential courier for the POS and the private company, ”he said.

    The framework agreement aims to enable the Pan African Postal Union, PAPU and stakeholders to explore and execute business opportunities for registered communications and digital postal services.

    FG to unveil NIPOST unbundling policies

    By Tolu Aiyegbusi

    The Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Dr. Isa Pantami, said the Federal Government would soon unveil policies to unbundle the Nigerian Postal Services (NIPOST).

    Pantami stated this on Tuesday in Abuja at the unveiling ceremony of NIPOST revenue stamp.

    The Minister described NIPOST as one of the most important institutions of government, adding that policies that would transform its operations and make it innovative would soon be unveiled.

    “ We have so many policies of transforming NIPOST in the pipeline and part of it will unbundle NIPOST.

    “We also have the ACT of NIPOST going into amendment.

    “ We have a plan with a property and development company, the company will bring together all the properties of NIPOST, develop them and make sure that the government generates revenue from them.

    “ All generated revenue will go into developing sectors like health, education, agriculture, security and other social developments,’’ he said.

    He disclosed that other aspects of NIPOST unbundling to take place before  end of the year include NIPOST transport and logistics, courier services and microfinance bank.

    Pantami who was hopeful of NIPOST becoming a world class outfit praised stakeholders for their unrelenting efforts in remodeling and recording modest achievements recently.

    The Postmaster General (PMG) of NIPOST, Dr Ismail Adewusi, earlier stated that over the years, Nigeria’s history had been documented through stamps.

    “ Through stamps, NIPOST has documented Nigeria’s history, educating and preserving our national heritage among others.

    “Stamps have served as objects of visual communication and dependable recorder of events for prosperity, ” he said.

    Going down memory lane, the PMG said revenue stamps were first issued when the Niger coast and southern Nigerian protectorates merged into the colony and protectorate of Nigeria in 1938.

    According to him, after the time of the merger, series of rare revenue stamps were produced.

    However, he urged the public to avail themselves the new revenue stamps for the authentication and validation of documents and denotation of duties or fees.

    “ We have about 25 million copies of the stamp unveiled today for sale at the rate of N50 each and it is available for sale in all our postal outfits nationwide.

    “ We are hopeful it will be sold out in the next two weeks and then we commence reproduction,’’ he said.

    In her remarks, the chairman, NIPOST Governing Board, Maimuna Abubakar, said the unveiling of stamps marked a milestone in the effort towards institutionalising a culture of excellence in NIPOST public service delivery.

    According to her, NIPOST is back to its legal position of administration of stamps and effectively contributing to the socio economic development of Nigeria.

    “ We are thankful with the signing into law of the amended Finance Act 2020 by President Muhammadu Buhari.

    “ There is no need over stating the obvious that NIPOST stamps have been unquestionably used since time immemorial as the only instrument for denoting duty and today’s event is a testament.

    “ I strongly believe that NIPOST can thrive on revenue generation, considering the massive network, infrastructure and opportunities around it,’’ she said. (NAN)

    Assist government achieve sustainable development goals — NIPOST boss tells district managers

    The Post Master General (PMG) of Nigerian Postal Services (NIPOST), Dr Ismail Adewusi, has urged District Postal Managers (DPMs) to help government drive sustainable development goals.

    Adewusi gave the charge while addressing the DPM’s at a 2-day interactive meeting between the PMG and DPM’s in Abuja.

    The PMG said that the DPMs should see themselves as agents of change of the new NIPOST and urged them to have a drive toward the expectation of postal service in Nigeria.

    He stressed the need for a new NIPOST that would provide quality service in line with best global practices, an agency that would help the government drive sustainable development goals.

    He noted that his first meeting with the DPMs since assumption of duty recently was to take stock of their performances since they embarked on a transformation agenda.

    “The focus of this gathering is to review performance and operational procedure.

    “Exchange ideas on improving operational efficiency using the right working tools

    “Fashion out other businesses NIPOST can embark on,’’ he said.

    He disclosed that NIPOST under his watch would try and provide the right working tools to upgrade their ways of doing business due to the advent of information and communication technology (ICT).

    He added that the global economy was changing and this must be integrated in NIPOST and urged all the participants to be part of the transformation.

    He called on all the DPMs to embrace discipline, honesty and sincerity of purpose to improve the image of NIPOST which had been a butt of public criticism in times past due to sharp practices.

    Adewusi also lamented the poor conditions of service of NIPOST staff members and said an increase in its generated revenue could help address the issue if they could work hard in increasing its revenue.

    He said he was hopeful that at the end of the meeting NIPOST workers would see themselves as change agents who would help in restructuring the postal service in Nigeria.

    Similarly, the Chief Operating officer (COO) of NIPOST, Mrs Nwakama Lauretta, while addressing the DPMs expressed gladness at the gathering which afforded the opportunity to discuss issues of great importance.

    She urged the participants to come up with ways of blocking revenue leakages and other ways of partnership that could help boost NIPOST’s revenues.

    She also urged participants to reach out to existing subscribers and encourage them to renew their subscriptions regularly.

    “ Private Mail bags (PMB) and Post Office Boxes are one major source of revenue of NIPOST, the supervisors in mail offices should reach out to owners of PMB’s for evacuation and renewal of subscriptions regularly.

    She called on the poorly performing zones to work harder and directed those giving NIPOST a negative image to desist.

    “Go back to your district offices and work on improving service delivery.

    “Poor service delivery has given NIPOST a negative stigma and led to loss of revenue; acts of negligence from supervisors and offenders would no longer be tolerated.

    “It is sad to note that some of you have carried on business as usual and businesses that are very unusual; this ugly trend must stop,’’ she said.

    FG partners energy firm on deployment of solar energy

    The Nigerian Postal Service  (NIPOST)  says it is partnering Ukpa Hansa Energy Solutions Limited, an indigenous energy firm, to deploy solar energy across the country.

    The PostMaster General of the Federation, Dr Ismail Adewusi, disclosed this at the unveiling of the  solar products in Abuja, on Thursday.

    He said that the Federal Government was re-engineering and re-inventing NIPOST through collaboration with different stakeholders from the public and private sectors.

    According to him, government is also leveraging on technology to present an array of innovative products and services aimed at meeting the divergent needs of Nigerians.

    “In recent time, globalization, coupled with the growth in e-commerce aided with the advent of new communication technology, has forced many postal administrations to explore ways of expanding their frontiers.

    “This is done through collaboration with relevant stakeholders in order to meet the emerging challenges in the communication sector,’’ he said.

    Adewusi said this was what necessitated its renewed effort to use its extensive postal outlets to provide innovative and unique products and services to the Nigerian citizenry in collaboration with both public and private sector institutions.

    “The unveiling of Hansa Green Energy Solutions, product of Ukpa Hansa Energy Solutions Limited, today is a result of such collaboration through our Agency Service and our contributions toward the attainment of Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) of the Federal Government.

    “ Today, the Post is a key vehicle to achieving the United Nations 2020 Agenda for Sustainable Development Goals in all countries.

    “As part of the world postal network of over 660,000 post offices, NIPOST is placed in a vantage position with about 5000 postal outlets consisting of full-fledged post offices, postal agencies and post shops, with over 12000 employees across the country.

    “We are making available post office counters nationwide to Ukpa Hansa Energy Solutions Limited to markets its products to Nigerians.

    “This will help in the advocacy for clean energy by delivering energy solutions. From today, this service would be available in our post offices nationwide on demand by customers,” he said

    In his remarks, the Managing Director of Ukpa Hansa Energy Solutions Limited, Chief Ewie  Aimienwauu, said the partnership with NIPOST was designed to address the issue of epileptic electricity situation in the country.

    He said that the idea was to take electricity to the homes of people living in remote parts of the country without the opportunity of connecting to the national grid.

    Aimienwauu said that the deal would see NIPOST distribute the solar energy products at its offices and post offices across the length and breadth of the country.

    He said that with the partnership, solar energy solutions would be provided to homes at affordable rates.

    According to him, it will address the challenge of difficulty of low income households to enjoy stable electricity supply.

    “This partnership between NIPOST and Ukpa Hansa is one that will bring succor to Nigerians; give electricity to the remotest part of Nigeria where the hope for electricity from the national grid would not materialize, even in the next 10 years.

    “ With this solution, electricity would no longer be a problem,” he said.
