The Postmaster General of the Federation, Dr Ismail Adewusi, on Monday inaugurated a state-of-the-art Computer Based Test (CBT) centre and mini post office in Enugu.
Adewusi said that the move was one of the surest ways to achieve the Universal Postal Union (UPU) standard.
He said that the essence of the UPU was to provide adequate postal services to Nigerians.
“The centre will be equipped to handle JAMB registration and examination and other online registrations like national identity card, travelling passport, driving licence and recruitments.
Adewusi said that NIPOST was committed to the Federal Government’s agenda of financial inclusion and of making e-government services available in areas that were either underserved or not served.
He said that the smart post office would enable NIPOST to provide financial services which include agency banking and others.
Adewusi said that the goal of the organisation was to have a post office that would be a one-stop-shop for any business that one aspired for.
Earlier, the South East Zonal Manager, NIPOST, Mr Friday Aba, said that the facility would provide the needed services to the people of the area.
Aba said that the centre was the first of its kind in the zone and urged the people of the area to make good use of it. (NAN)
