NIPOST: No more cash payments orders Pantami - ITREALMS

ITREALMS:
The Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Dr. Isa Ali Ibrahim (Pantami) has ordered with immediate effect the stoppage of every cash payments in the Nigeria Postal Service (NIPOST) office nationwide, reports ITREALMS.
This order, ITREALMS gathered, follows series of corrupt tendencies discovered by the Minister’s office at NIPOST, decrying that it has led to some unscrupulous elements, taking undue advantage of the cash payment system under NIPOST to engage in corrupt practices.
A press statement by the Minister’s spokesperson, Mrs. Uwa Suleiman, noted that in line with the anti-corruption programme of President Muhammadu Buhari and the mandate of the Federal Ministry of Communications and Digital Economy, the Post-Master General (PMG) has been ordered to forthwith, suspend all existing cash payment plans within its establishments countrywide.
Part of the statement read, “The Post-Master General, is to ensure that all its offices revert to Point of Sales (PoS) and bank teller transactions immediately. The general public and all customers of NIPOST, are hereby encouraged to insist on Point of Sales (PoS) or bank teller transactions, when conducting business with NIPOST.
“This directive is a temporary measure to tackle corruption, as we are currently working on fully automating the systems as a permanent solution to the challenge.
Further, Dr Pantami directed the Post-Master General to immediately implement strategies that will bring an end to unnecessary delays in its service delivery to customers.
“The current trend of delays in postal services will not be condoned by the office of the Honourable Minister under whose purview, the supervision of NIPOST falls.
“The administration of President Muhammadu Buhari, and the Honourable Minister of Communications and Digital Economy are committed to protecting the rights of all Nigerians and will not tolerate any act of corruption under its watch,” Pantami insists.
