From henceforth, you will not be able to pay with cash at any of Nigeria’s post offices.

This is because the Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Dr Isa Pantami, has suspended all cash payment plans within the establishments of Nigerian Postal Service (NIPOST) nationwide.

Pantami directed the Postmaster-General (PMG), Adebisi Adegbuyi, to ensure that all its offices revert to Point of Sales (PoS) and bank teller transactions immediately.

The minister’s order followed claims that some people had been taking undue advantage of the cash payment system of NIPOST to engage in corrupt practices.

According to the minister, the move is in line with the anti-corruption agenda of the present administration and the mandate of the Federal Ministry of Communications and Digital Economy.

In a statement on Thursday, the minister enjoined the general public and NIPOST customers to insist on the use of PoS or bank teller when conducting business with the service.

“This directive is a temporary measure in the interim to tackle corruption, as we are currently working on fully automating the systems as a permanent solution to the challenge,” he said.
