Maktoub boss berates NIPOST chair over grammatical error in NIPOST call out

The publisher of Maktoub Magazine, Mariam Mohammed Maktoub has berated the chairman of NIPOST, Maimuna Abubakar, over a post she shared yesterday.

Maimuna had accused the Federal Inland Revenue Service, FIRS, of stealing stamps instead of buying from NIPOST.

Her post which had some grammatical errors has now been mocked by Mariam who wrote:

“In a series of quirky, trending tweets, the chairman of the NIPOST, curiously maligned a sister agency, FIRS. Beyond displaying a surprising ignorance of her brief, she needlessly diminished the image of her agency and spawned questions over the leadership recruitment process that threw her up to the perch. Her appointment certainly could not have been merit-based. Inter-agency communication has its formal channels – not the social media.

“Besides being a disastrous grammatical outing clothed in uncouth language, she actually brazenly incited the public against FIRS by casting aspersions against that flag-ship agency. How could the chair of a federal agency be unable to distinguish between Stamp Duty and Postage Stamp – and worse bring this ignorance to the public square!

“The move by the chair of the board of Nipost which can’t be labeled ‘a storm in a tea cup’ is fraught with disruptive implications for inter-agency synergy at a period distractions are the least a corrective administration needs”.

  1. What a shoddy hatchet job. This is at best spurious and at worst, a classical display of arrogant ignorance. Every Nigerian knows postage stamps have always been used to denote agreements. Law courts have sought the expertise of NIPOST in this regards. To say otherwise is to ride rough shod over the collective intelligence of Nigerians.
