He said, “In a bid to expand the frontiers of NIPOST products and services, an agreement was signed with eGATE of Egypt on digital transformation. With this agreement, job opportunities will be created. It will also help to address the infrastructure gap in the organization, as well as reposition NIPOST on the path of full digitization.”
“The objective is to produce large stocks of marketable products using NIPOST’s warehousing, logistics and financial services. This initiative we, as an organization, seek to explore to contribute to the economic development of the country, while also expanding our revenue base.”
“In last two years, some of our post offices have been transformed into smart post offices. These include Eruwa, Awe, Omu-Aran, Gombe, Osogbo, Ogbomoso, Ado Ekiti, and Enugu post offices. We want to transform the post offices into hubs, a one-stop-shop, where citizens can access a number of e-government services, like applying for driver’s licence, international passport and National Identification Number registration, etc.” He added.
