The Federal Government has approved nine companies to audit the properties of the Nigerian Postal Service across the country.

It said the firms, which were divided into the six geo-political zones of the country include Oghogho Ayanru, Raji Adewale Associates, Alaba Odunlanmi, Law Field Barristers and solicitors, and B.A. Wali & Associates.

Others include Aliyu Abubakar & Co, Bola Fabola, Tayo Osuntogun & Co and Primal Chambers.

According to the statement, the firms are to determine properties duly registered at relevant land registries and the ownership status of properties.

The statement read: “Nine firms have been approved by the National Council on Privatisation under the Chairmanship of the Vice President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, to immediately carry out a nationwide verification of NIPOST Properties & Development Company Limited.

“This was one of the high points at the second meeting of the council for 2023 held at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, on February 21, 2023.

“The firms are to provide proposals for carrying out the assignment based on validating the titles of the properties, thereby determining if the properties were duly registered at the relevant land registries.

“Determine the ownership status of the properties as well as the type, size, and location of the properties and provide any additional information that will enhance the audit of the properties.”
