Adedoyin Adeniyi, area postal manager, NIPOST, Osun State, said in Nigeria, the youth constitute 65 percent of those that buy goods online and that these youths were mostly in tertiary institutions.
Delivering a speech in Osogbo during the 2015 World Post Day celebration, Adeniyi said: “We in NIPOST in Osun State are going to embark on an aggressive enlightenment campaign through the media houses and door-to-door campaign that they should send and receive their goods through NIPOST.
“Due to NIPOST’s vast infrastructure and coverage in all local government headquarters and most villages in the country, the Central Bank of Nigeria has entered into a financial inclusion partnership with NIPOST to provide financial services to the unbanked population in all communities in Nigeria,” she said.
