SSASCGOC’s General Secretary, Mr Ayo Olorunfemi made the commendation in Lagos on Monday in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN).

NAN reports that the Courier Regulatory Department of NIPOST on March 27, shut five courier companies for allegedly operating illegally and revoked licences of 17 others.

Diwa said that the action became necessary in view of the increase in the activities of illegal operators which had affected genuine businesses and served as economic sabotage in the country.

SSASCGOC scribe said: “NIPOST is doing all it can to bring back its lost glory and compete with international organizations.’’

Olorunfemi stressed the need for courier companies to conform to the new rules and standards set to improve the image and goals of the postal service.

“NIPOST is repositioning itself and will not hesitate to penalise any company contravening its rules.

“I urge the courier companies to adhere to stipulated standard and re-strategise their operations,” he said.
