Is NIPOST Deliberately Withholding Phones Ordered From Aliexpress? by Valentinooo: 9:53pm On Sep 19, 2020
On the 7th of March, I ordered a phone which was shipped on the 18th of March. Ever since then, nothing has been heard of it.
The memory card I intended to use with the phone was ordered two days later, and that one has since arrived.

From the lamentations on the aliexpress thread, I noticed a lot of people are also in my situation.
They bought phones which refused to deliver whereas the accessories they ordered days after ordering the phone got delivered.

This lead to the assumption that nipost staffs are deliberately holding on to these phones for reasons best known to them.

I don't want to believe these phones are being stolen by those that are meant to deliver them to us.

Why will I buy a phone with my hard earned money only for it to be stolen by people who are meant to deliver the phone?

This is corporate robbery and should be condemned.

How will a phone come all the way from China without missing only for it to get to Nigeria and get missing?

I have to create this new thread to make our plight known to the whole world.

I have also tagged those who are having this same issue.

Seriously, this is another bad image for Nigeria.
If aliexpress kept refunding Nigerians for items that have been shipped to their country, then it's only a matter of time before they blacklist us.

it is a regular something from Nipost. they are fantastically corrupt in that parastatal.

Go to where it is to be delivered, and request to see senior management. Do like you get choko for head o, and brag a bit about knowing people and taking up the matter.

I have been calling all their customer care number I saw on their twitter page, the calls are going through but nobody is picking up.

The one that managed to pick up asked me to send my tracking number and call back after some minutes. I sent the tracking number, and called back after some time, she refused to pick again.

Chai!!! I don't even know who to call again.

Which kain wahala be this.




As requested.

I ordered a small phone on July 23rd, it was was shipped on Aug 1st. I no see phone for past 1month, I went to the Post office to track it for me, they decided to help me track it after waiting for an hour, they said it has been in Naija since Aug 21st.

I neva see phone till now. Today na Sept 19.
I won't be surprised if AliExpress stops shipping to Naija. They have really lost a lot from shipping to Nigeria.

I picked up an order from the post office in the 2nd week of August.

I deliberately did not confirm receiving the order to see if the tracking status will be updated.

I checked today and the tracking status is still "dispatched to destination country".

I believe the covid-19 lockdown and the lack of tracking update from NIPOST presented a window of theft (of valuable items) for unscrupulous NIPOST staff.

At this point, it's best to order only inexpensive items until everything normalizes.

This is just my opinion.

Your phone definitely arrived. You either bribe or find a way to threaten those idiots before you can get it. Type NIPOST in search box to find others who were in the same situation as you and how they solved it

You can add my monika to that list.
I orderred for a phone on 3rd June, Shipped 4th June, Despatched to Nigeria 8 July, but till date, I haven't seen the phone. It's quite painful.

I've been to the post office thrice to check for it.
1st time it was tracked, I was told it's not in their database yet. 2nd and 3rd time, I was told that their server is down. Other items ordered after the phone have arrived. This shit has to stop.

NIPOST is wacky. Imagine, post-COVID-19 and their workers are still reluctant to start work fully. I could remember during the early days of Coronavirus when the States and the rest of the world were in lockdown, their post office was still working.

Till now, NIPOST has vowed not to put themselves into good use. I wonder what they do with our parcels gathering dust at their offices.

WE NEED OUR MAILS, NIPOST!!

I'm disappointed with the Nigerian Postal Service, honestly. undecided

Postal service is one of the essential services but in this country, the reverse is the case. Even after COVID, they have refused to carry out their task. We are trying to recover, meanwhile, NIPOST is still working on shift at this stage
They are busy building smart offices, whereas they can't even make prompt nationwide delivery

I can't really fault NIPOST as my experiences with em has been generally ok. Never lost a single package, all my package that never arrived I got refunded. I've even received package 6 months after I have been refunded. Unfortunately, in most of these instances I can't reach seller as some have either closed or gone out of business. I never really understand why most AE sellers keep closing stores and I guess opening under a new name. AE must've made it very easy for this to happen.

It's been long I ordered phone off AE. But all my goods that I never received is either lost in transit or still in China. Never had issues where my items are in Nigeria (from tracking info) and didn't get to me.

Not only phone. Anything useful will get lost. I'm even tired of opening dispute on aliexpress again. Even small packages are no longer safe in the hand of NIPOST official. Once they sort and check, discover its valuable. Its gone!!

This is indeed sad. Over the years we only hear of isolated cases of either missing in transit items or package not arriving.

But with this long list of persons having similar issue same time, it is really appalling. Something fishy must be happening at either Nipost or Customs sorting centres.

I don't what's wrong with Nipost ooo, I ordered for a phone on June 4th, till now it is still showing despatched to overseas, I don't know if it's Nipost that stole it or they refused to sort it, all I know is they are just too incompetent and I even called their customer care to track it for me and they told me that it's on its way to Benin, till today I've not seen the phone. thank God I've collected my money but it's painful that the seller just lost his money like that but ive decided to source for it here, if it comes I will sell it and refund the money.
