NIPOST staff shut office to protest appointment of new postmaster general by Tinubu

The Nigerian Postal Service (NIPOST) staff members on Monday shut down their head office as they rejected the appointment of the new Postmaster General (PMG), Tola Odeyemi, by President Bola Tinubu.

Ms Odeyemi’s appointment was announced last week by Ajuri Ngelale, presidential spokesman. However, NIPOST, in a separate statement, disclosed the reinstatement of Sunday Adepoju as PMG

Some protesting workers who spoke with journalists on the condition of anonymity said Ms Odeyemi was appointed against their wish and, as such, cannot be allowed to assume her new role.

They called on Mr Tinubu to reverse the new appointment and maintain the reinstatement of Mr Adepoju.
