SWITZERLAND, NOVEMBER 07- Minister Of Communication and Digital Economy, Dr. Isa Pantami has ordered the termination of cash payment at NIPOST Offices nationwide.
According to the statement released, the decision comes as a result of the fact that some ‘unscrupulous elements have been taking undue advantages of the cash payment system under the Nigeria Postal Services NIPOST to engage in corrupt practises.’
The Minister has ordered the Post Master General to ensure that all NIPOST offices revert to Point of Sales (PoS) and bank teller transactions immediately.
The statement however, mentions that this is a temporary measure and that the government is working on full automating systems for a lasting solution.
