The Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Dr Isa Ali Pantami has directed the Nigerian Postal Services NIPOST to suspend the new tariff on registration of courier services in the country.
Reacting to complaints by Nigerians on the new hike, the Minister under whose purview the supervision of NIPOST falls, took to his Twitter handle to reiterate the position of the Federal Government on the increament. He tweeted;
"Pls @NipostNgn, our attention has been drawn to an increase of licence fee, which was not part of the regulation I earlier APPROVED for you. Your Chair and PMG were YESTERDAY contacted to put the implementation on hold and send a report to our ministry by Monday. Best wishes!"
