The Area Post Manager (APM), of the Nigeria Postal Services (NIPOST), in charge of Rivers Territory, Mrs. Danso Olayinka Olushola, has identified the inability to recover debts owed the agency as a major challenge.
Olushola spoke in Port Harcourt, the Rivers State capital to mark the 2016 World Post Day celebration with the theme; Serving a new society: “Delivering beyond your doorstep.”
She said: “The issue of non-payment of our facilities by our customers and tenants is a great challenge to us. Some customers, organisations, parastatals, agencies, are owing us and our marketing unit have been going round to meet them but most of these revenue are not coming. This is a great challenge for us.”
But promised to lead the debt recovery drive the moment she settles down in the state.
“By the grace of God we are moving out. Once I get the list of the debtors, we are moving out. I have come here to work and I know that there will be compliance.” She stated.
Mrs Olushola said NIPOST has embarked on new innovation in line with the current global digital technology in mail service delivery to ensure customer satisfaction.
According to her, apart from the conventional mail services such as post office boxes, private mail bags, postal agencies, among others, NIPOST has included new innovative services such as postal financial service, post cash and logistics service.
