NIPOST IS COMING BACK, THIS TIME WITH 5 NEW UNITS


The rise of the internet, and with it the dearth of letter writing has relegated the once vibrant postal service industry to the background.



Many industrialized countries, however, instead of sitting back and accepting defeat, restructured their postal agencies to accommodate the changing times.


Although observers might consider it quite late in the game, the Nigeria Postal Service, NIPOST, has finally been restructured to make its service delivery more efficient and run on leaner resources.

 The new structure which is with immediate effect also restructured the postal organization into six business commercial units including e-commerce department in order to take advantage of emerging business trends.

 These units include: Mails, Counter Services, EMS/Purcle Services; Properties and Workshops, e-Commerce and Logistics, and Financial Services.

It has collapsed its 38-territory structure and in its place put a seven-zone structure in place. Under the new arrangement, each of the six geopolitical zones of the country constitutes a zone in NIPOST.

Lagos stands as a zone because of the volume of business that is handled in the area which formerly had two territories.

The Postmaster-General of the Federation, Mr. Bisi Adegbuyi, who announced the new development in a circular, said zonal managers and managers of the business units would be given revenue targets, that they are expected to make as well as create new services and seek how to deeper always existing ones.


According to Mr. Adegbuyi, “the restructuring is in line with the principle of delegation and devolution of powers to enable NIPOST run in a more efficient manner to engender operational efficiency, better service delivery, diversification and inclusive growth process by all the members of staff of the organization”.
