FG Commissions NIPOST’s Ten Operational Mail Vehicles To Boost Economy
The federal government has commissioned Nigerian Postal Service’s Ten Operational Mail Vehicles to boost service delivery for Nigerians and the country’s economy.
Unveiling the Vehicles in Abuja on Thursday, the Minister of Communication and Digital Economy, Prof Isa Pantami, said this has indicated that NIPOST is on the part of the transformation.
“The trucks were purchased through the internally generated revenue of NIPOST, not with Federal Government’s allocation”, he stated.
Earlier, in his remarks, Rt. Hon Adeyemi Sunday Adepoju, The Postmaster General of the federation and CEO of the Nigerian Postal Service, NIPOST, said the development would significantly impact the Country’s digital economy.
He explained that vehicles were launched for NIPOST to compete favourably in the Nation’s electronic communication, e-commerce, logistics, and courier industry.
Adepoju added that NIPOST, under his watch, would continue to initiate innovations geared towards improved service delivery and restoration of public confidence in the ability of the organization to meet their expectations.
“Today, we are witnessing another practical demonstration of that commitment with the commissioning of 10 brand new JAC TRUCKS of 3/4 tons each for the coverage of National Mail Routes.
“The Hon. Minister, distinguished guests, ladies and gentlemen, the commissioning of these vehicles today is a build-up to those remarkable and indeed a significant milestone in the efforts of the current NIPOST management under my watch to reposition the organization to meet the needs of the contemporary customer and improve the socio-economic life of the people of this great Country.
Effective and efficient National Mail Routes will help put Nigeria on a proper pedestal within global postal administrations”, he stated.
