The Niger Government says it will partner the Nigerian Postal Service (NIPOST) to revitalise the organisation for more efficiency.

Gov. Sani Bello of Niger disclosed this in Minna on Wednesday when he received Mr Asiwaju Bisi, NIPOST new Post Master General.

He promised that the state government would patronis NIPOST whenever it restructured its decayed facilities in the state in order to improve it’s revenue and service delivery.

“You have enough structures and manpower in the state that have not been in use for a long time. The structures are being wasted.

“As a state, we will patronise you if the service you give is good. We will partner with you to upgrade the decayed facilities located in the state.

“The state has a lot of value to add to the operation.

“We can come up with a concept to look at the restructuring and invest in the areas that will bring about more revenue for both us,” he said.

Bello urged the Post Master General to liaise with the state Ministries of Trade, Commerce and Investment as well as Information, Culture and Tourism to strategise a viable working partnership.

Earlier, Bisi had appealed to the state government to assist the service by upgrading the decayed facilities in Bida and Rijau Local Government areas.

He said that President Muhammadu Buhari had mandated him to turn the service to a reliable business organisation with sound principles of corporate governance.

Bisi appealed to the state government to patronise the services of the organisation to encourage others to follow suit.

“I appeal to the state government to consider appointing Express Mail Service (EMS) as it’s official parcel courier company.

“When you do this, other organisations will key in,” he said. (NAN)
