The Federal Government has ordered the immediate termination of cash payment in offices of the Nigeria Postal Services across the country.

Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Dr Isa Pantami, who gave the order on Thursday, said it has been discovered that the cash payment system was aiding corrupt practices.

Ibrahim spoke in a statement issued by his spokesperson, Uwa Suleiman.

Suleiman said, “It has come to the attention of the Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Dr Isa Pantami, that some unscrupulous elements have been taking undue advantage of the cash payment system under the Nigeria Postal Services to engage in corrupt practices.

“In line with the anti-corruption agenda of President Muhammadu Buhari, and the mandate of the Federal Ministry of Communications and Digital Economy, the minister hereby directs the Post Master General, to, with immediate effect, suspend all existing cash payment plans within its establishments nationwide.”

The Post Master General was directed to ensure that all NIPOST offices immediately migrate to Point of Sales and bank teller transactions.

Members of the public and all customers of NIPOST were encouraged to insist on the PoS or bank teller transactions when conducting business with the postal service.
