The Nigerian Postal Service (NIPOST) has revealed plans to collaborate with the Nigeria Railway Corporation (NRC) on the movement of cargo and other postal services to boost Nigeria’s economy.
The Postmaster General of the Federation, NIPOST, Dr. Ismail Adebayo Adewusi, who revealed this when he met with the managing director, NRC, Engr. Fidet Okhiria in Abuja recently, said that the collaboration is geared towards taking advantage of the Nigerian Railway Corporation (NRC) extensive rail networks on the movement of cargo and mail items across Nigeria.
According to him, time was when both bodies enjoyed a robust relationship and, now, they needed to get back to it.
“One of those areas is the presence of our postal services along railway outlets across Nigeria. We believe that with your expanded rail network we want to have physical presence in most of your locations, so that we can operate as agency to provide services in those areas.
This collaboration between NIPOST and NRC will shorten our delivery time and enhance our quality of service.
In response, Okhiria expressed willingness to partner with NIPOST for the benefit of Nigeria’s economic growth.
“NRC is willing to partner and collaborate with NIPOST. The proposal and request tabled will be put into black and white,” he revealed.
