NIPOST to partner with CBN for banking services

15 April 2014, 14:14

Abuja - The Nigeria Postal Service (NIPOST) is holding talks with the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) to establish a banking service facility.

Dauda Musa, the Nigeria Postal Service (NIPOST), FCT Area Manager, said that the initiative would help Nigerians to gain access to banking facilities through the post office.

"As we speak the process is still ongoing and this is part of the drive of boosting our business portfolio.

"We are also working in partnership with other agencies of government, apart from the CBN to avail Nigerians of our services,’’ he said.

He said that in 2013, the agency also carried out research activities in its drive to reposition the agency for better service delivery.

Dauda said that NIPOST also belongs to the Universal Postal Union (UPU), a world organisation which brings together all the postal organisations in the world.

"We represent Nigeria in that union, and the union is responsible for matters concerning letters, cargoes, and parcels,’’ he said.

Musa said that as a member of UPU, NIPOST had been assisting Nigerians to move letters, parcels and goods to different parts of the world, apart from within Nigeria.

He said that online organisations such as Kaymu, Jumia and Amazon, had been sending their goods to their customers both in Nigeria and abroad through NIPOST.

He urged Nigerians to use NIPOST services as it is being repositioned in line with the Internet communication.                                                                  

"The use of Internet or Global System for Mobile communications (GSM) is not discouraging but rather encouraging us to improve because one can actually buy things online through the GSM and pay and it will get to you.’’
