    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.

    NCC, NIPOST to sign MOU on e-services

    The Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) and the Nigerian Postal Service (NIPOST) have agreed to sign a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) on an e-fulfillment centre for e-services, e-commerce, e-governance and e-agriculture.

    The two organisations agreed on this during a courtesy visit by the NIPOST management to the NCC’s headquarters on Wednesday in Abuja.

    The Post Master General (PMG) Mr Ismail Adewuyi, informed that the reason for the visit was for NIPOST to seek partnership, interventions and to also tap from the synergies that existed between the two agencies.

    Adewuyi appealed for collaborative efforts in the area of expanding broadband penetration, particularly in the rural communities, where the NIPOST had existing presence in order to improve and ease their duties.

    He explained that the vision for the Federal Government to NIPOST was to ensure that the agency continued to play universal service obligation, which was a mandate of the universal postal union.

    He said that NIPOST was looking at setting up a transport and logistics company that would serve the purpose of moving mails, parcels and to leverage on its properties within the country in order to add value and to ensure that the agency contributed to the nation.

    The PMG further said that one of the major areas NIPOST wanted to optimise was the post office bank, which he said was a big business, adding that it was an active government financial inclusion strategy that would boost the economy of the country.

    “In Nigeria we are still largely under banked especially in the rural communities where we have post office reach. We want to take many out of poverty.

    “We want to contract the excess capacity we have and service the people at large in the country.

    “In the world at large we now have many postal services not only sending mails but auxiliary services around the globe.

    “We want to find a way to tap into the symbiotic relationship that we all have in common as a parastatal agency under the ministry of Communications and Digital Economy.

    “For us, our agency is going through a lot of transformation at this point so there cannot be any better time to seek for this kind of partnership than now,” he said.

    In his response, the Executive Vice Chairman of the NCC, Prof. Umar Danbatta, mentioned an area of common interest between the two agencies, which had to do with the issue of the

    Unstructured Supplementary Service Data

    (USSD).

    He said that the commission was making efforts to reach amicable resolution between the banks and the telecommunications operating companies.

    He noted that the commission signed an MOU with the CBN in order to reduce the number of Nigerians excluded from joint financial services to only 20 per cent.

    Danbatta called for more awareness of campaign to educate Nigerians about the new NIPOST and also called for continuous collaboration among agencies under communications.

    He expressed concern about the difficulties that NIPOST went through and commended the PMG and the management board for bringing innovations to the agency.

    “We hope we can raise the financial inclusion penetration to 80 per cent. It is about 60 per cent at the moment.

    “On the USSD issue, we need to get permission from the Minister who issued that important pronouncement on behalf of the government that the USSD service should be suspended.

    “We have written to the Minister making a very strong and convincing statement to revisit so that financial inclusion penetration is not retarded through the sanction,” he said.

    Bangladesh high commission seeks partnership with NIPOST

    The High Commissioner of Peoples’ Republic of Bangladesh, Mr Shameen Ahsan, says his country is interested in partnering Nigerian Postal Services (NIPOST) on the production of  commemorative stamps.

    Ahsan made this known when he paid a courtesy visit to NIPOST headquarters, on Monday, in Abuja.

    He said his visit to the post and parcel office was basically to explore the possibility of unveiling commemorative stamps to mark the 100th year birthday of its former leader, Sheik Mujibur Rahman.

    A commemorative stamp is a postage stamp often issued on a significant date, such as an anniversary to honour or commemorate a place, event, person or object.

    It is often issued for a limited time to commemorate person or an event of national importance.

    It’s usually printed once in large quantities and is allowed to go out of circulation as its supply is used up.

    The envoy said the commemorative stamp that ought to be issued by the NIPOST was to commemorate with the centenary birth of the Rahman who was referred to as “father of the Bangladeshi nation’’ in Bangladesh.

    He stated that he was also on a visit to explore every means of cooperation and how diplomatic relations could be strengthened between his country and Nigeria.

    “The 100thyear birthday of Rahman, popularly referred to as “father of the Bengali nation’’ is celebrated annually on March 17 at home and abroad.

    “We are here to see how NIPOST can help reel out stamps to commemorate the birthday of Sheik Mujibur Rahman who was born on March 17, 1920.

    “Bangladesh which is self-sufficient in food and garment production also prides itself in being a malaria-free country.

    “ NIPOST and the commission have a year to plan on the production of the commemorative stamps,” Ahssan said.

    According to him, Bangladesh is one of best in the world when it comes to women inclusive and empowerment initiatives and that by employing women it makes the best of the workforce.

    “Our internal power generation is commendable as there is a steady increase in the megawatts we produce, ‘’ he added.

    He also said that Nigeria and Bangladesh had some things in common such as the population of both countries and steady growth rate.

    In his response, the Post Master General (PMG), Dr Ismail Adewusi, said the post was always ready to work with any establishment who needed its services.

    Adewusi said that the post had successfully issued commemorative stamps in the past.

    He added that commemorative stamps were usually issued at ceremonies connected with the subjects or for purpose it was issued.

    He also said engagements such as that further strengthened the bilateral relations between countries which the federal government was passionate about.

    “Since there is a time frame, we are willing to liaise with the high commission and work.

    “This will also help in moving bilateral relations forward and move both nations towards the path of economic prosperity,’’ he said.

    NAN reports that March 17 of each year is a national holiday in Bangladesh to celebrate the birthday of Rahman.

    Rahman, served as the first president of Bangladesh, later as first Prime Minister from April 17, 1971 until his death on Aug. 15, 1975.

    He is considered to be the driving force behind the independence of Bangladesh.
