Lagosians working in the Nigerian Postal Service (NIPOST) would not experience job losses, following the ongoing reform of the postal service, the Director-General, Bureau of Public Enterprises (BPE), Mr. Alex A. Okoh has assured.
He said that the reform service will not attract job losses or retrenchment but will rather create more jobs in the subsidiaries that would emerge after the reform.
Okoh said NIPOST after the reform would still remain 100 per cent entity of the Federal Government as the reform only aims at commercialising its services and making it robust to deliver more efficient postal service.
BPE Head Public Communications,Amina Tukur Othman stated this in a statement on Wednesday.
Okoh told the labour leaders that three commercial ventures – NIPOST Properties & Development Company; NIPOST Transport & Logistics Company and NIPOST Microfinance Bank Limited have been carved out of NIPOST.
He said the reform will lead to the emergence of Nigerian Postal Commission (NPC) as a regulator of the sector to ensure efficiency, service delivery and check abuses.Follow us on social media
