NIPOST to issue Nigerian passport, driver's licence

Image result for NIGERIAN PASSPORT PICSAbuja – The Minister of Communications, Mr Abdur-Raheem Shittu, said the Federal Government planned to turn the Nigerian Postal Service (NIPOST) into a mega conglomerate offering various services. This is contained in a statement by the Head, Public Communications, Bureau of Public Enterprises (BPE) in Abuja on Tuesday.

It reported that the minister said this while receiving the Acting Director-General of BPE, Mr Vincent Akpotaire , who was on a courtesy call.

“NIPOST would be offering services in e-Commerce, e-Learning/Library services and issuance of the Nigerian passport and driver's licence plus other security documents,'' the minister said.

Shittu said that the government was poised to constitute a technical committee to proffer solutions to the issues militating against the postal sector.

The group would also present a policy direction to harness the economic potentials of NIPOST.

The minister acknowledged the significance of reforms to the communication sector and the key role of BPE in sector reforms, saying that the bureau would be included in the committee.

He expressed optimism that an all inclusive participation of all stakeholders would steer NIPOST towards harnessing its commercial potentials.

Shittu urged the bureau to carry out research on the Nigerian Communications Satellite Ltd (NIGCOMSAT) and come out with the best options to either commercialise or privatise the company.

“This is based on revelations that it is under patronised and has only one signal.“

Responding, the DG of BPE, acknowledged the yet untapped potentials of NIPOST.

Akpotaire said that NIPOST, though in near disappearance, had sufficient assets to generate economic and commercial services.

According to him, in view of the Central Bank of Nigeria’s National Financial Inclusion Strategy, NIPOST could begin skeletal services within the scope of the resources set aside by the CBN.

He noted that through the vast postal network available to NIPOST, it was equipped to deliver financial services to remote areas currently excluded by financial institutions.

To facilitate the process, Akpotaire said that the Bureau would present a comprehensive proposal to the minister within a week.

The DG said that the BPE would liaise with the National Assembly to harmonise the bureau's proposed reforms with the privately sponsored bill on the postal sector before it.

He called for an independent regulator for the sector to update services and ensure transparency as well as position NIPOST to compete favourably with other concerns in the sector

Love the article on Gaddafi
We must rise above tribalism & divide & rule of the colonialist who stole & looted our treasure & planted their puppets to lord it over us..they alone can decide on whosoever is performing & the one that is corrupt..but the most corrupt nations are the western countries that plunder the resources of other nations & make them poorer & aid the rulers to steal & keep such ill gotten wealth in their country..yemen,syria etc have killed more than gadhafi but its not A̷̷̴ good investment for the west(this is laughable)because oil is not in these countries..when obasanjo annihilated the odi people in rivers state, they looked away because its in their favour & day!

Hello from
I was amazed to find a website for Africans in Hungary.
Looks like you have quite a community there. Here in SA we have some three million Zimbabweans living in exile and not much sign of going home ... but in Hungary??? Hope to meet you on one of my trips to Europe; was in Steirmark Austria near the Hungarian border earlier this month. Every good wish for 2011. Geoff in Jo'burg

I'm impressed by
ANH work but...
Interesting interview...
I think from what have been said, the Nigerian embassy here seem to be more concern about its nationals than we are for ourselves. Our complete disregard for the laws of Hungary isn't going to help Nigeria's image or going to promote what the Embassy is trying to showcase. So if the journalists could zoom-in more focus on Nigerians living, working and studying here in Hungary than scrutinizing the embassy and its every move, i think it would be of tremendous help to the embassy serving its nationals better and create more awareness about where we live . Taking the issues of illicit drugs and forged documents as typical examples.. there are so many cases of Nigerians been involved. But i am yet to read of it in So i think if only you and your journalists could write more about it and follow up on the stories i think it will make our nationals more aware of what to expect. I wouldn't say i am not impressed with your work but you need to be more of a two way street rather than a one way street . Keep up the good work... Sylvia
