About Pan-African Postal Union (PAPU) Day
The Pan African Postal Union (PAPU) was born on 18th January 1980 in Arusha, the United Republic of Tanzania. PAPU reserves this day on its annual calendar for celebrating the African Postal Customer in line with a Theme approved by the Union’s Plenipotentiary Conference.
The theme for this year’s forty-first PAPU Day Celebrations is “Harnessing synergies with players of the wider postal sector”.
The theme is consistent with the ongoing worldwide discussions and consultations on the Universal Postal Union (UPU) ‘s proposed opening-up to players of the wider postal sector. This issue has taken centre stage in the current global agenda.
According to Mr Bice Osei Kuffour, empirical evidence of Ghana Post’s existing partnerships makes partnerships no longer an option, but a necessity, owing to their remarkable potential for finding innovative solutions to prevailing needs and challenges.
Mr Bice Osei Kuffour, who took office barely 14 days ago, is optimistic that Ghana Post seeks to remain the most accessible, reliable, affordable and most effective logistics company in Ghana.

Mr. Bice Osei Kuffour took advantage of the occasion to salute the hardworking staff for their sacrifices made to meet customers’ demands as the world continues to grapple due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
