NIPOST Mail Network Collapses Nationwide As Contractors Withdraw Vehicles by AutoJoshNG: 7:27am On Oct 10, 2019
Nigeria Postal Service (NIPOST) is currently experiencing a nationwide collapse in distributing mails, parcels and cargo as their private partners withdraw operational vehicles over non-payment for services rendered over many months.

The postal service relies on the partnership with about 10 private partners who provide trucks for the daily distribution of mail and parcels to all parts of Nigeria.

In an attempt to get NIPOST management to clear arrears of payments for services which have run into four months, the mail and parcel haulers embarked on an indefinite strike on Monday morning.

It was learnt that the notice issued to the organisation over the outstanding charges expired Sunday night with no attempt made by the management to convince the operators not to withdraw their vehicles which constitute a vital link in the discharge of NIPOST’s core mandate of efficient and timely mail movement across the country

Mrs. Lorretto Nwakanma who is NIPOST Chief Operating Officer had no comment when she was contacted. However, she directed all enquiries to the Corporate Communications Manager, who she later assured would revert with information on the development.

Also contacted on phone, the General Manager of NIPOST’s Mail Route Network, Mr. Yalpilami, confirmed that the 10 transport companies collaborating with the organisation in the mail movement partnership, commenced a nationwide strike Monday, but declined further comments.

“Of course, they have withdrawn their services, but that is all I can tell you. To get any further information, you have to contact our headquarters in Abuja. I am not in a position to give you the information you are asking for,” Yalpilami said.

According to some concerned observers, this nationwide collapse would be injurious to business transactions and the economy if not addressed swiftly.

A source at the NIPOST Shomolu zonal office informed our reporter that the partnership with the haulers would be lapsing in a few weeks. He added that refusal to pay the four-month arrears might be the management’s subtle way of signaling to the present private partners that their contracts might not be renewed in order to pave way for fresh logistics companies.

As if they were functional before . The worst mistake I made was using Nipost to receive a package from Europe. It took over 2 months and several calls to get to my location .

in sane societies, govt-owned institutions compete side by side with private ones. This gives you freedom of choice. It also helps to reduce cost because if the cost of the private businesses and services are too expensive, people will go to govt-owned ones which are normally cheaper. We can't kill public institutions all because private ones that you mentioned are around.

This is very bad. I can imagine many lost and stolen parcels. How is this even possible that you don't pay for a service rendered.

DHL, FEDEX, UPS & TRANEX cost nothing less than #20,000 without insurance fee on an average of 500-1kg parcel. However, NIPOST costs maximum #2000.
EMS isn't bad too.
