NIPOST unveils POSTAGY, emerges Nigeria’s preferred e-commerce firm
The Nigerian Postal Services (NIPOST) yesterday, harped on its capacity to harness all emerging technological innovations to transform services to meet demands of the new generation.
It said it had left analogue operations behind and embraced technological solutions to bring quality services to Nigerians. Postmaster-General of the Federation, Dr. Ismail Adebayo Adewusi, while speaking at the unveiling of POSTAGY, a new logistics application, in Lagos, said NIPOST had moved with the global trend in businesses and is coming up with fresh ideas and solutions that would make transactions easy to all.
POSTAGY is a mobile solution platform that enables the fulfillment of both offline and online purchases of merchandise. The applications are available for download on Apple Store and Google Play Store as POSTAGY and POSTAGY CAPTAIN.

The Postmaster-General of the Federation, who was represented at the event by NIPOST’s Director of Operations, Mr. Victor Udughele, said the new innovation had also culminated in another strategic partnership with Hamabreeze Limited pioneer motorbikes, already enrolled on the “POSTAGY CAPTAIN” app and waiting to deliver orders.
