NIPOST, NIS partner to reduce delays in passport collection

During a recent working visit to the Acting Comptroller General, Caroline, at the Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS) Service Command Headquarters in Sauka, Abuja, the Postmaster General/Chief Executive Officer of the Nigerian Postal Service (NIPOST), Sunday Adepoju, unveiled plans for a collaborative effort between NIPOST and NIS. 

The aim of this collaboration is to enhance the efficiency of passport collection by reducing the turnaround time. This strategic partnership seeks to leverage the strengths and resources of both organizations to streamline the process and deliver a more seamless experience for passport applicants.

The Postmaster General stated that the collaboration became necessary due to the development of an integrated service delivery model by NIPOST.

“This service incorporates various government services and information which would be provided to citizens in a one-stop shop environment using several channels to meet different needs of the citizens at selected post office locations nationwide.

“With this proposal, NIS will leverage NIPOST infrastructure for the collection of passports and adopting the postal network as an e-fulfillment centre for enhancing the digital economy,” he explained.

Adepoju added that the roles and responsibilities of the development are for a sustainable and integrated framework for the process of e-passport, provision of courier services, and address verification validation.

This, he said, would harmonise the various e-government initiatives in the agency as well as consolidate NIPOST efforts to reaffirm productivity synergy with NIS.
