No plans to handover NIPOST to foreigners – Shittu




The Minister of Communications, Barr. Adebayo Shittu has denied insunations making a round that he wants to handover the Nigerian Postal Service (NIPOST) to unknown foreigners, ITRealms reports.


Refuting this allegation through his Special Assistant on Media, Mr. Victor Oluwadamilare, the Minister said ordinarily, they would have ignored the innuendoes surrounding NIPOST, as there is no iota of truth in the said story, except for the likelihood of Nigerians being misled on genuine intentions of the government to reposition and revitalise NIPOST.


Oluwadamilare in putting the records straight, said the Government of the day has no plan whatsoever to either “privatize NIPOST nor hand it over to foreigners to manage.”


In a related development, Shittu said he is determined to succeed in office and deliver on all his promises, hence he streamlined the appointments of his aides. 


They are Messrs Abdullah Adeyanju Binuyo – Special Assistant (Technical); David A. Awotunde – Special Assistant (Admin); Victor Oluwadamilare – Special Assistant (Media) and Hon. Razak Bayo Olubodun – Personal Assistant. 


According to Oluwadamilare, this development which is with immediate effect, is in line with the Federal Government guidelines on the appointment of aides by Ministers.
