Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Dr Isa Ali Ibrahim (Pantami) has directed the Post Master General, to with immediate effect, suspend all existing cash payment plans within its establishments nationwide.
In addition, the Post Master General is to ensure that all its offices revert to Point of Sales (PoS) and bank teller transactions immediately.
The Minister said the directive is neccessited by the news of some unscrupulous elements taking undue advantage of the cash payment system under the Nigeria Postal Services (NIPOST), to engage in corrupt practices.
Pantami further encouraged the general public and all customers of NIPOST to insist on Point of Sales (PoS) or bank teller transactions, when conducting business with NIPOST, adding that “this directive is a temporary measure in the interim to tackle corruption, as we are currently working on fully automating the systems as a permanent solution to the challenge.”
Meanwhile, the Minister has also directed the Post Master General to immediately implement strategies that will bring an end to unnecessary delays, in its service delivery to customers, warning that the current trend of delays in postal services will not be condoned by the office of the Honourable Minister under whose purview, the supervision of NIPOST falls.
“The administration of President Muhammadu Buhari, and the Honourable Minister of Communications and Digital Economy are committed to protecting the rights of all Nigerians and will not tolerate any acts of corruption under its watch,” Pantami said.
