The federal government has ordered immediate termination of cash payments in all Nigeria Postal Services (NIPOST) offices.

Isa Pantami (pictured), minister of communications and digital economy, announced this in a statement issued by Uwa Suleiman, his spokesman on Thursday in Abuja.

The statement quoted the minister as saying that some members of staff of NIPOST have been taking undue advantage of the cash payment system to engage in corrupt practices.

He urged the public and all customers of NIPOST to insist on point of sales (PoS) or bank teller transactions when conducting business with NIPOST.

Pantami also directed the postmaster general (PMG) to ensure immediate implementation of strategies that would bring an end to unnecessary delays in service delivery to customers.

According to the minister, the directive is a temporary measure to tackle corruption in the system.

“The current trend of delays in postal services will not be condoned by the office of the Minister under whose purview, the supervision of NIPOST falls,” the statement read.

“We are currently working on fully automating the systems as a permanent solution to the challenge.

“I hereby direct the postmaster general, to with immediate effect, suspend all existing cash payment plans within its establishments nationwide.

“The postmaster general is to ensure that all its offices revert to point of sales (PoS) and bank teller transactions immediately.”
