The Nigerian Postal Service (NIPOST) on Friday said it is still in the business of delivery of goods and services in spite of availability of the Internet technology into the country.
Mr Simon Adoyi, the Area Postal Manager, Niger Territory, made this known at the 2015 World Post Day in Minna.
He said that the Internet era had enhanced its performance “as NIPOST has remained a vehicle for the delivery of developmental ingredients to the world.’’
Adoyi said that in spite of stiff competition, globalisation, market liberalisation and rapid development of the Internet, NIPOST has been able to make its mark.
“Despite all odds, the post had been able to make its mark in the sands of time; from receiving of letters and parcels.
“It had been able to touch the lives of all categories of people all over the world.’’
The manager said that the strategy for identifying customer as reason for being in business had been paramount in the mind of postal authorities all over the world, hence the interconnection of networks and tighter grip of the market.
According to him, the postal sector will strengthen the provision of universal services in the next several years.
The NIPOST official said that the Nigerian postal service was developing a reform programme tailored toward repositioning the organisation for better service delivery.
He said “the programme involves the gamut of restructuring how we used to do business, the type of business we do, customer relations, staff welfare and a host of other issues geared toward placing NIPOST in better position for the Nigerian project.’’ (NAN)
