Staff of the Nigerian Postal Service (NIPOST) have shut down the head office of the service in Abuja in protest against the appointment of Tola Odeyemi as Chief Executive Officer/Post Master General.
Presidential spokesperson, Ajuri Ngelale, had announced last week that President Bola Tinubu made some changes in the leadership of communication agencies, including NIPOST.
However, moments after the news of Odeyemi’s appointment broke, there were reports that Adeyemi Adepoju, the sacked Post Master-General had been reinstated.
In a viral video, Adepoju was seen addressing some workers who claimed Tinubu had reappointed him.
But on Monday, the protesting workers denied entry to the newly appointed NIPOST CEO, saying her appointment was against their wish.
The workers, who said they preferred Adepoju, chanted solidarity songs and wielded placards
