    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.

    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.
