We Will Redefine the Nigerian Postal Service for the Modern Age –NIPOST Boss
The newly appointed Postmaster General of the Federation/CEO, Nigerian Postal Service (NIPOST), Ms. Tola Odeyemi has disclosed that NIPOST under her watch will continue to evolve, offer innovative solutions, meet customers changing needs in a modern age and build an organisation that can stand the test of time.
She made this known at the NIPOST Special Day held recently at the 35th Lagos International Trade Fair with the theme “Connecting Businesses, Creating Value” where she was represented by the State Postal Manager, Lagos Island, Barrister Emmanuel Ajaero.
The Special Day was an avenue for the agency to engage with consumers and other stakeholders in the postal service ecosystem.
She explained that the theme of the trade fair aligns with the agency’s vision, “We place a high value on connecting businesses, as it reminds us of our essential responsibilities.
“As we collectively embark on this journey to continue to be the leading postal agency globally, it is through innovative solutions, strategic partnerships, and the dedication of our human capital that we will redefine the Nigerian Postal Service for the modern age. Together, we will build a NIPOST that Nigerians can trust-a NIPOST that connects Nigerians irrespective of what they do.”
She added that the postal service plays a key role in connecting businesses and creating value in today’s digital world and for that, they leverage modern technologies to ease their operation. She pointed out that they also offer customers reliable and cost-effective means of transmitting essential documents, goods, e-commence items, mail, and other business-related materials.
“Today, in the digital age, customers have the privilege of ordering items from anywhere in the world, right from the comfort of their homes or offices, and having these items delivered to their preferred destinations using our postal system. The postal service is, therefore, a powerful catalyst for economic and social development, opening new avenues and efficiencies for businesses and individuals alike.”
Reeling out some of the services that the company offers, she said “Our commitment to evolving and adapting is evident in the range of services we offer, including Address verification, the Digital Postcode system, Mail delivery, and significantly, financial services. These services are integral components of our transformation journey as we strive to meet the ever-evolving needs of the public and align ourselves with the demands of a rapidly changing world.”
The President of the Lagos Chamber of Commerce and Industry (LCCI), Dr. Michael Olawale-Cole commended NIPOST for its resilience, innovation, and ensuring that postal service is still today a vibrate sector in the country.
