NIPOST, CBN To Collaborate On Cashless Policy

NIPOSTThe Nigerian Postal Service (NIPOST) said it was collaborating with the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), in the execution of the bank's cash less policy.

The Area Postal Manager in Jigawa, Mr Pascal Ijara, made the disclosure in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Dutse on Wednesday.

He explained that the effort would harness the wide reach of post office services to ensure financial inclusion for the un-banked and under banked rural population.

The Manager said that NIPOST is currently remodelling its post offices to be Information and Communications Technology compliant so as to take advantage of the new opportunities.

He said under the partnership, NIPOST would roll out new services such as cash transfer, as well as warehouse Point of Sale Terminals especially in rural communities.

The Manager said: ``The era of information technology has brought enormous competition to bear on NIPOST mandate and operations.

``We therefore need to redouble our efforts to create an efficient and profit-oriented postal service that would guarantee customer satisfaction and improved revenue generation.''

Ijara urged wealthy individuals to venture into the system, to serve as NIPOST agents to enhance access to more fanacial services at the grassroots.

According to him, the gesture would encourage people to patronise the services in payment of salaries, pension and loans to farmers in rural areas. (NAN)
