The Postmaster General of the Nigerian Postal Service, Adeyemi Adepoju, has said a repositioning of the organisation is ongoing to drive efficient and affordable mail delivery and curb the challenges in the logistics sector, especially for small businesses.

Adepoju said this at the launch of the 10 new logistics vehicles acquired by NIPOST to boost its mail and logistics operations held at the National Mail Distribution Centre Abuja.

This was contained in a statement on Tuesday titled ‘NIPOST pledges improved mail and logistics services: flags off new vehicles’.

It read in part, “The Postmaster General of the Federation/CEO Nigerian Postal Service, Rt. Honourable Adeyemi Sunday Adepoju said the organization is being repositioned to provide an effective and efficient mail delivery at an affordable cost to mitigate the challenges associated with logistics, especially for the Small and Medium Scale Enterprises in the country.”

The statement noted that the new vehicles were acquired to support the repositioning of NIPOST to meet the socio-economic and contemporary needs of its customers.

“He noted that, effective and efficient National Mail routes system will help in putting Nigeria in a proper pedestal within the comity of global postal administrations. The flag off of the new trucks is a practical demonstration of the managements’ commitment to improve logistics, e-commerce, courier and mail delivery services across the nation,” the statement added.

The NIPOST boss further commended the policy of the new administration of President Bola Tinubu, which he said would encourage the development of the digital economy.

The statement also said, “In today’s world, logistics industry is experiencing a transformation like never before. The demand for fast deliveries has skyrocketed, the speed of delivery has reached unprecedented levels.

“Most businesses depend on transportation of their goods across local and international locations to fulfil their values and supply chain in order to stay connected to their customers.”

President Bola Tinubu had affirmed during his swearing-in ceremony that his administration would not continue to pay subsidy on petroleum products.

He said the Federal Government was struggling to fund subsidies, noting that it was no longer justifiable to continue.
