First class economist new CEO of NIPOST Ismail Adebayo Adewusi moves to reposition Nigeria’s courier company for profitability

Adewusi is a First Class Economist from Nigeria’s Obafemi Awolowo University and a doctorate degree holder in Monetary and International Economics from the Kieo University in Japan.

Saying he was aware of the enormous challenges facing NIPOST, Adewusi urged the workers to embrace the fact that their contributions could not be divorced from the fortunes of the organisation.

He reminded them that no organization can make any meaningful impact if the human resources are not properly harnessed in tandem with its goals.

“Those familiar with me know that wherever I go, I leave very strong legacies and NIPOST won’t be an exception,” the Postmaster General told the staff.

He informed that he was aware there were many issues confronting NIPOST adding “they are well known to most of us and I can tell you that the challenges are enormous.”

He however added that breathing live back to dying and troubled organisations and business concerns have been his major area of interests both in public and the private sectors where he had amassed wealth of experience.

He told the staff further, “In Lagos State where I served as Commissioner for Finance under Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the Internally Generated Revenue that government inherited was just about N600m monthly. However, by the time we were leaving, we had been able to raise its IGR to N10bn monthly and that was what subsequent administrations that came after us had built upon which I am sure has hit about N30bn mark monthly. That is the orientation that I have come from.”
