    NIPOST has been transformed to improved technology driven service delivery – Official

    Mr Umar Musa, Area Postal Manager (APM), Lagos Island Territory said the Nigeria Postal Service (NIPOST) had been transformed to a one-stop shop driven by technology to improve service delivery.

    Musa, in an interview with the Nigeria News Agency in Lagos, said that the organisation had transformed to become a veritable provider of efficient courier service in the country.

    “I think the whole thing is the effort of the present Post Master General.

    “His determination is to transform NIPOST to a service that is competitive with any of its counterparts across the globe.

    “We are giving anybody in this system a run for their money.

    “We are seeing gradually how the post can be used as a platform for trade facilitation and for Micro Small Scale and Medium Enterprise (MSMEs),’’ Musa said.

    According to him, NIPOST can become a key player in the anti-corruption fight of the Federal Government and can also be transformed into a major source of generating revenue for the country.

    “I think what the public is going to see in the next few months is an organisation that is being transformed in line with the transformation agenda of Mr president,’’ he said.

    Mrs Simbiat Lawal, the Senior Assistant, Post-Master General, Corporate Commission Department also said that NIPOST was not restricted to only letters but also engaged in philately, a collection of stamps for business.

    Lawal said that the organisation also posts cash as part of its current innovation used to replace money order and postal order which had been taken over by events.

    She said that NIPOST had also invented the parcel post which allows a customer to carry heavy luggage at a reasonable and affordable amount of money.

    “People think that the post office is about letter writing but that is not all we are about.

    NPOST is all about philately, post cash, kitchen utensils, school table and doors, chairs that can be used as event centres.

    “We also build trucks that can carry goods; if you come to the NIPOST workshop we will construct it for you.

    “If you go to other courier service companies you will be charged heavily, why not come to NIPOST as we have our network across the globe,’’ Lawal said.

    FG inaugurates 4 special anti-corruption postage stamps

    The Federal Government on Monday inaugurated four special anti-corruption postage stamps created by the Nigerian Postal Service (NIPOST), to reinforce its resolve to wage total war corruption.

    Inaugurating the stamps at the NIPOST Headquarters in Abuja, President Muhammadu Buhari, represented by the Secretary to the Federal Government, Mr Babachir Lawal, said that the war against corruption was a collective one.

    Buhari commended the agency for undertaking the task to create more awareness in the anti-corruption crusade by issuing the set of stamps.

    “The Federal Government is conscious of the vital role postage stamps play as powerful public relations tool; government recognises that by the features they bear, they serve as ambassadors for their countries.

    “They supply information about countries’ cultures, histories, fauna, tourism, geography, artifacts and products and the most effective medium of immortalising important national events and monuments.

    “Therefore, we are prepared to support measures that will bring about a virile and efficient postal system in Nigeria.

    NIPOST Management is hereby challenged to be resilient and effective in the delivery of its services and products, so as to key into the present administration’s `Change Agenda’.

    Buhari urged all Nigerians, corporate organisations and all other critical stakeholders to embrace the use of adhesive/electronic postage stamps as a means of authenticating transactions of N1,000 and above.

    NIPOST is now positioned to be one of the highest non-oil revenue generating agencies of government; the time cannot be better than now to look for other sources of revenue for national development.

    “I enjoin Nigerians to maximize the advantage inherent in the usage of this set of four special anti-corruption stamps with the message `Say no to bribe, fraud, bunkering and theft.

    “As a nation, if we truly desire to survive, it is imperative that we fight and get rid of this monster called corruption before it will kill us.”

    Also speaking at the event, the Minister of Communications, Mr Adebayo Shittu, said the inauguration of the anti-corruption stamps was apt.

    According to him, it is a reflection of the zeal of the people to eliminate corrupt practices from the polity.

    “The issuance of these postage stamps in support of the anti-corruption crusade, underscores the role of NIPOST in the socio-economic development of Nigeria.

    “The postage stamps will constantly remind the populace of the evils of corruption and the need to eliminate the scourge.

    “Government resolve to reform NIPOST is to strengthen the capacity of the institution to establish more outlets in unserved areas and also serve as shared services platform.

    “This is to ensure that essential and efficient e-services will be delivered to the citizenry. Government is aware of the need to replicate modernised post offices with commercial orientation,’’ Shittu said.

    He, therefore urged all Nigerians to take advantage of the stamps to make a statement against corruption.

    Earlier in his  address of welcome, the Postmaster-General, Mr Bisi Adegbuyi, said NIPOST would not relent in its efforts to support and project all laudable government projects and programmes.

    Adegbuyi added that the aim of issuing the stamps was to carry the fight against corruption to the doorsteps of Nigerians and also deposit its landmark in the annals of global history.

    The high point of the event was the presentation of the emblem of the four stamps to the president.

    NAN reports that a Dance and Drama Community Development Service group of the National Youth Service Corps Batch A, presented a drama depicting how the stamp can be used to curb corruption.

    NIPOST stresses importance of letter writing

    The Senior Assistant, Postmaster General and Head, Corporate Affairs, Nigerian Postal Service  (NIPOST), Mrs Simbiat Lawal, says the post office is a unifying body connecting every aspect of the society through letter writing.

    Lawal told the Nigeria News Agency on Monday in Abuja that the postal service is an agency of government that engenders nation-building by  engaging citizens, especially children in letter writing.

    According to her, even more developed countries still encourage the act of letter writing because of its capacity to develop individual’s intellectual capacity.

    “ We want to be able to ignite them. We want to educate them and enlighten them on reasons why they still need to write letters.

    “Even in the Western world where internet is almost everywhere, letters are still written; how much more in our country here.

    “We must not allow ourselves to just be consumers of technology without thinking.

    “I want to let the people know why they still need to write letters because the post is here to build the nation; to connect every single aspect of the society, no matter how remote.

    “This is done by person to person; and letter writing is what we call letter post. So we must not let the spirit die; we must not let letter writing and posting die,’’

    She said that letter writing brings countries together and through it, people share emotions and experiences that would have been otherwise hidden.

    Lawal urged parents and guardians to encourage their wards and children to write letters, adding that teachers alone should not be left with this text if children’s intellectual capacity must be built.

    “Recently a 15-year Taiwanese won the letter writing competition organised by the United Nations. We are hoping that one day, a Nigerian child too will win such prize.

    “This competition had given this child the opportunity to be on the world map.

    “So also other children that had won the competition in the past. They are exposed to other cultures and people and become more informed as this is made possible by the postal service.

    “There is no way this will happen if you do not practice how to write letters. There is no way you will write letters for the first time in an exam hall, if you have not been writing it.

    “Letters can be kept for life and when you do that, you keep somebody’s emotion for life. So post is very relevant as it brings about this connectivity,’’ she said.

    NAN reports that the Universal Postal Union (UPU), the parent body of postal services across the world, organises International Letter-Writing Competition among children annually.

    It aims to improve literacy through the art of letter-writing, targeted at children and young people.

    The annual competition encourages participants to express their creativity and refine their language skills.

    Speaking on other aspects of the postal service, Lawal said that the agency would introduce new products like the bulk post which had to do with organisations that handled a lot of bulk documents like the Stock Exchange.

    “Bulk post is meant for people and organisations who generate a lot of letters from their office, which they need to deliver to other people around the world.

    “For example, Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), their work has to do with a lot of dividend warrants, certificates and all of that that is bulky.

    “The post makes it convenient to dispatch.

    “Other products include: Special Delivery Service, Post Cash, Haulage and Logistic,’’ she said.

    He talked about the introduction of the National Mail Route Scheme (a partnership scheme between NIPOST and private transporters).

    “All these are meant and tailored at meeting and satisfying contemporary customers’ tastes and demands.’’

    ICT, not a threat to NIPOST—-Official

    Mrs Simbiat Lawal,   Senior Assistant Postmaster-General, Nigerian Postal Service(NIPOST), says  Information Communication Technology (ICT) is not a threat to the organisation but complements its functions.

     

    Lawal, who is in charge of NIPOST Corporate Communications, stated this on Wednesday in Abuja in an interview with the Nigeria News Agency .

    She said that ICT was helping NIPOST to be more dynamic in its operations, adding that NIPOST was leveraging on the opportunities provided by ICT to boost its services.

     

    “To us, ICT is not a threat, it is re-engineering the post to better serve the people, considering the fact that society is fast changing and dynamic.

     

    “As it is, every service required by our customers and stakeholders must be dynamic and we must change to meet their demands.

    “Therefore, we will not just drop letters at the doorsteps of our customers whether they are at home or not, but go beyond dropping letters and parcels.

    “Even if you say you are in the moon, with the help of ICT we can get there to deliver your parcels.’’

     

    Lawal, however, said that the Universal Postal Union (UPU) had mandated postal services across the globe to introduce new products that would further enhance their worth and value if they must remain relevant.

     

    She added that UPU had also charged postal services to be innovative and to look for products and services that were in demand.

    Lawal said that NIPOST had integrated the social media to enhance its communication links and service delivery.

    “Every nook and cranny of the country harbours the postal service; hence we must include all the communities to get the best of communication to.’’

    She also said that the agency was collaborating with some organisations to enhance its internet services with a view to deliver on its mandate of ensuring speedy service at the lowest cost.

     

    NAN recalls that Mr Bashar Hossain, UPU Director-General at the commemoration of the World Post Day, had admonished postal administrations across the globe to be innovative and open to change.

    He said that the collaboration would be done through best approaches, business models and technologies to forge flourishing inclusive ecosystem.

    According to him, “Nigeria has adopted a theme: “Smart Communities; the key to a digital Nigeria’’.

    “The session will bring together expert speakers and an influential global audience drawn from governments’ key ICT players, international organisations, high growth SMEs, consultants, academia, the media, among others.’’

    According to Ojobo, the theme of the ITU conference,  “Collaboration in the Digital Economy’’ will signpost collaborative regulation, connected to cards to smart sustainable cities, fostering SME innovation, new roles for satellite industry and digital financial services.

    “This year’s theme will feature compelling formats ranging from top-level chief executive officers/ministerial round tables to open dialogues between government and small and medium business leaders and interactive debates.
