It added that with the new development, NIPOST was officially endorsed to accept and deliver the certificates of incorporation from clients across the country.

It also said that NIPOST remains the organization with the widest reach across Nigeria for safe and efficient courier delivery.

“Following NIPOST’s success in the interview conducted by CAC for prospective courier companies, we are pleased to announce the endorsement and accreditation of EMS/Parcel as one of the official couriers of the commission.

“Business transactions will commence on 1st September 2020”, it said.
