Nigerian Postal Service (NIPOST) is 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 said this when he met with the Managing Director, NRC, Engr Fidet Okhiria in Abuja recently.

Dr. Adebayo said that the collaboration is geared towards taking advantage of the Nigerian Railway Corporation’s (NRC) extensive rail networks for the movement of cargo and mail items across Nigeria.

According to him “NIPOST had a robust relationship with Nigerian Railway Corporation which we needed to go back to.

“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 a physical presence in most of your locations, so that we can operate as an agency to provide services in those areas.

This collaboration between NIPOST and NRC will shorten our delivery time and enhance our quality of service” Dr. Adebayo said.

In response, the Managing Director/CEO NRC, Engr. Okhiria expressed willingness to partner with NIPOST for the benefit of Nigeria’s economic growth.

“NRC is willing to partner and collaborate with NIPOST and that the proposal and request tabled will be put into black and white”, Engr. Okhiria said.
