The Nigerian Postal Service (NIPOST), on Saturday, claimed that President Bola Tinubu has reinstated Adeyemi Adepoju, as the postmaster general of the agency.

However, NIPOST in a statement on Saturday released via its account on the X platform, claimed Adepoju has been restored to the position of the agency’s postmaster general by the President due to his exceptional leadership and performance.
“President Bola Ahmed Tinubu (GCFR) has reinstated Rt. Honorable Adeyemi Sunday Adepoju as the Postmaster General of the Federation & CEO of the Nigerian Postal Service (NIPOST) due to his exceptional leadership and performance,” the statement reads.
