At a time in Nigeria, the Nigerian Postal Services (NIPOST) was not doing what it was meant to do.

This, on the other hand, created lapses which private bodies, especially those of foreign countries, saw and took advantage of.

Most of them would succeed in establishing private courier services which have so far succeeded in winning the trust of many Nigerians. Thus making them reliable and effective.

Here are some of the best courier services in Nigeria
