Babies can now enroll into National Identity Database — NIMC


The Kaduna State Coordinator of the National Identity Management Commission (NIMC), Abubakar Hassan, has said that underage Nigerians can now for enroll into the National Identity Management System.

Hassan made the disclosure during an awareness and sensitization campaign highlighting the benefits of the National Identification Number (NIN) and National Identity Management System (NIMS) which took place in Kaduna.

The campaign was organized by the National Orientation Agency (NOA) in collaboration with NIMC.

Before now, underage children were not eligible to enroll into the NIN system while it  has always been mandatory for all citizens and legal residents of Nigeria.

The coordinator, however, confirmed that after a review of the policy, a day old baby can now be enrolled.

Hassan urged Nigerians to enroll into the NIN saying, “every registered person will be given a unique number which only he or she can use as means of identification.”

He pointed out that the new National Identity card was an improvement on the former card, having facilities which enabled users load and withdraw money as well as perform other business transactions.

According to Hassan, the system had room for modifications that allowed an enrollee change or update his or her data.

“In a situation where a person loses his National Identification slip which contains the NIN, one can retrieve the number by dialing *346#,” he said.

The NOA State Coordinator, Zubair Galadima-Soba, in his contribution said incidences of illegal migrants who engaged in criminal acts should spur the federal government’s resolve to enroll her citizens and legal residents into NIN.

“The registration will confirm the legitimacy and authenticity of your citizenship which will help the government to effectively plan developmental project that would be all inclusive,” he said.

  16. I have noticed that over the course of making a relationship with real estate managers, you’ll be able to get them to understand that, in most real estate financial transaction, a percentage is paid. Ultimately, FSBO sellers never “save” the percentage. Rather, they try to win the commission simply by doing the agent’s work. In doing this, they spend their money plus time to accomplish, as best they’re able to, the duties of an agent. Those jobs include displaying the home by way of marketing, offering the home to buyers, making a sense of buyer emergency in order to prompt an offer, scheduling home inspections, controlling qualification inspections with the loan provider, supervising maintenance, and aiding the closing.
