Adepoju noted that the digitalisation of the postcode system would facilitate efficient mail delivery and enhance security agencies’ response to emergencies, thereby reducing banditry, kidnapping and internet scams.

He further stated that it would provide an effective healthcare delivery system, adequate revenue and tax collections and utility bill distribution, adding that the digital postcode would boost Nigeria’s economy and help reduce insecurity.

The NIPOST boss added that implementing digital postcodes would enhance the seamless issuance of driver’s licenses, National Identity Management number, international passport, banking services and other address verification services.

“With the determination and dedication of NIPOST and the technical partners in fast-tracking and actualising, the programme will make a mark in Nigerian history.

“With our process of enhancing the postcode leveraging on technology, we draw up entities to ensure every part of the country is effectively captured, using a systematic framework of alpha-numeric characters from the state, local government areas, postcode districts, postcode areas and postcode units,” he stated.
