The Nigeria Postal Service, NIPOST, has created an e-commerce department to take advantage of emerging business trends in the world.
This is part of the restructuring of the postal organisation into six business commercial units for efficient service delivery in addition to the collapse of the organisation’s 38- territory structure into seven-zone structure.
The Postmaster-General of the Federation, Mr. Bisi Adegbuyi, who announced the new development in a statement, disclosed that under the new arrangement, each of the six geopolitical zones of the country constitute a zone in NIPOST.
“Lagos stands as a zone because of the volume of business that is handled in the area which formerly had two territories.
“The restructuring is in line with the principle of delegation and devolution of powers to enable NIPOST run in a more efficient manner to engender operational efficiency, better service delivery, diversification and inclusive growth process by all the members of staff of the organisation.”
He added that the zonal structure will make decision taking easier as the powers to take critical decision for the good of the business will rest with the zones.
The Zonal Managers and Managers of the Business units would be given revenue targets, they are expected to meet as well as create new services and seek how to deeper always existing ones.
