NIPOST, NIS partner to reduce delays in passport collection


The Nigerian Postal Service has revealed plans to collaborate with the Nigeria Immigration Service to improve the turnaround time for passport collection.

The Postmaster General/Chief Executive Officer, NIPOST, Sunday Adepoju, stated this at the Service Command Headquarters, Sauka, Abuja, when he led NIPOST management on a working visit to the Acting Comptroller General, NIS, Caroline Wura-Ola Adepoju.

The Postmaster General stated that the collaboration became necessary due to the development of an integrated service delivery model by NIPOST.

“This service incorporates various government services and information which would be provided to citizens in a one-stop shop environment using several channels to meet different needs of the citizens at selected post office locations nationwide.

“With this proposal, NIS will leverage NIPOST infrastructure for the collection of passports and adopting the postal network as an e-fulfillment centre for enhancing the digital economy,” he explained.

Adepoju added that the roles and responsibilities of the development are for a sustainable and integrated framework for the process of e-passport, provision of courier services, and address verification validation.
