Business Kaduna: LGs' mail to be Witheld due to N3m Debt owed to NIPOST

The Nigeria Postal Service (NIPOST) in Katsina State has threatened to withhold mails of the 34 local governments in Katsina State for allegedly failing to settle their debt for the past three years.

According to NIPOST Manager in Katsina, Mr Alex Bature, the debt amounted to N3 million.

Bature said although NIPOST was not a profit-making agency, there was need for individuals and organisations to pay for the services rendered to them ``to enable us to settle our financial problems''.

He said that postal services were targeted to reach at least 80 per cent revenue generation in the state this year.

The manager also said that NIPOST would organise a programme to enlighten students on the importance of postal services.

He said the state Ministry of Education had made it mandatory for schools to embark on excursion to the agency.

Efforts to reach the state Commissioner for Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs to comment on the matter proved abortive.
