Ghana Post Moves To Reclaim Business In Western Region

takoradi post officeThe Ghana Post in the Western Region, is repositioning itself to capture back all lost customers.

In line with this, it has embarked on a facelift at the Harbour Post Office in Takoradi.

The Western Regional Manager, Mr. Johnson Asante told The Ghanaian Times an exclusive environment and offices would attract customers and so the first challenge was to beautify the old post office.

“When I reported in Western Region four months ago, the building was nothing to write home about, so I had to start working immediately to capture our customers,” he told The Ghanaian Times.

Mr. Asante said the revenue was low with little patronage of the system, because the building was in very bad shape.

He observed that people did business based on trust, confidence and the environment.

“I can confidently say the state of the building was scaring people from doing any meaningful business with us, so I had to make the building look attractive in order to capture all the lost customers” he said.

The Regional Manager said business was picking up with the frontage looking beautiful and attractive, adding that the Market Circle Post Office will soon see some face lift too”.

He said the cash post was doing better than the previous years.

He said Western Union, the Traditional EMS was also picking up with patronage.

Mr. Asante said there was a collaboration between his outfit and Metro Mass Transit to pick parcels throughout the Country.

He said the Post shop was also working and hoped to expand the services to Axim Road and Tarkwa Post Offices.

Mr. Asante urged all Ghanaians to change their mentality towards government property or establishment.

“Workers mentality should be drawn towards creating more revenue for government. After all when Ghana is well developed, Ghanaians will enjoy first before any other nationality,” he added.

He said his outfit had created a system where customized envelopes are made for institutions to send reports of students to parents.

“We have been able to capture about 90% of the Senior High Schools in Western Region for the customized envelopes” he said. From Peter Gbambila
