NIPOST to introduce mail alert system soon — Official


ABUJA – Mr Dauda Musa, the Area Postal Manager, Nigeria Postal Service (NIPOST, Federal Capital Territory ( FCT), says the organisation would soon introduce a new mail alert system for customers.
Musa made the disclosure on Wednesday in Abuja when he spoke with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN).
The manager said that the new mail alert system would enable customers to know as soon as they had any mail.
Musa called on Nigerians, organisations and government agencies to take advantage the special delivery service.
He said the service was introduced to carter for those customers who because of the lack of time or other reasons could not come to the post office to pick their mails.
`’It’s a service that we introduced with the purpose of taking care of our customers who have little or no time to come to the post office to evacuate their mails.
“We enter into agreement with them that we will bring their letters to them as they arrive and they pay us, and of course the money is a very negligible amount.
“It is done so that people will not allow their mails to be piling up in our offices while such mails are very important to them in their various working places,” Musa said.
He said that such mails could contain team programmes or even dividend warrants that were time sensitive and memos from either government agencies or elsewhere that required urgent attention.
Musa said that when mails were left in the post office to stay for long, the tendency was that those that were time bound might be delivered too late thereby causing some damage.
He said that even some offices that had mail runners might for some unforeseen reasons, still have their mails picked up late.
The manager therefore, advised organisations and individuals to take advantage of the package to block disappointments that could arise from late delivery of mails.
“This service, I dare to say, is very affordable. If you want your mail to come to you once in a week, you will pay us only N11,000 for the whole year.
“If you give us N11,000 for one year, once every week, we will deliver your mail to you. You will tell us the day of the week which your mail should be delivered.
“And if you want your mail delivered to you three times a week, then it is N15, 000 and if you want us to deliver your mail to you, everyday then you will pay N20,000 a year,’’ he said.
The area manager said that the service was offered on a flat rate both for individuals and organisations to encourage its patronage. (NAN)
