The Nigerian Postal Service (NIPOST) has commended private courier/logistic companies in Enugu State for the substantial 70 per cent compliance to courier/logistic registration and licensing  in the state.


The State Postal Manager of NIPOST, Enugu, Mr Friday Akoma, gave the commendation while speaking with newsmen on the sidelines of the 35th Enugu International Trade Fair.


Akoma also lauded the union of courier/logistic association in the state that had done a lot of work in educating and encourage its members to follow the due course of the law and formalising their operation in the state.

The manager said that tenths of private courier/logistic operators in the state had used the ongoing stand of NIPOST at the ongoing fair to register and do the right thing and not operating in hiding any more.


“As it stands, we will not use the big sticks on them as we are already communicating with our headquarters on how they are turning out en mass to do the registration and follow the guidelines laid by NIPOST for their operation in the state.


“What we will concentrate more is further sensitization and follow-up on them through their association and facility visits to ensure that all private courier/logistic operators follow due registration, licensing and guidance,” he said.

Akoma also urged Nigerians to patronise NIPOST courier and cargo logistics, which the service is currently doing exceptionally well in.


“NIPOST have a leading edge on courier/cargo logistics through its extensive reach within all parts of Nigeria and beyond as well as it affordability.


“The integrity of the goods being conveyed is maintained and intact as well as reliability to deliver on time and schedule,” he said.


The manager, however, warned Nigerians to stop doing undocumented and unregistered courier.


He said: “Just giving a driver a parcel or item without going to the transport company’s office to formalise the courier deal is wrong.


“Peradventure the parcel or item got missing or is tampered with the driver and the owner of the parcel or item will bear the lost since it was duly registered and logged by the transport/courier company before the movement.”


On the fair, the manager said that it had afforded NIPOST opportunity to meet hundreds of Nigerians that had visited their stand to know more about the unique services of NIPOST.


“Our staff have also made in-roads in visiting stands of companies and exhibitors at the fair to present our unique services meant to enhance their products to them,” he added.
