The Nigerian Identity Management Commission (NIMC) has captured the identities of 60 million Nigerians on the National Identity Database (NIDB).
Kayode Adegoke, Head, Corporate Communications of NIMC, in a statement on Thursday in Abuja reiterated the NIMC’s commitment to improved service delivery.
The statement titled ‘NIMC reaches more than 60 million unique NIN records’ said the NIN was the primary identification for all citizens and legal residents.
“This feat couldn’t have been possible without the cooperation of all stakeholders including the general public.
“The transformational value of a robust and inclusive foundational ID system in today’s world cannot be overstated.
“As a commission, we’re committed to keeping this momentum of scaling up and speeding up the issuance of the National Identity Number (NIN) nationwide for better identification, authentication and improved service delivery,’’ he said.
Adegoke said that NIN is the Primary Identification number for all citizens and legal residents.
He commended the Minister of Communications and Digital Economy for his invaluable leadership and to all their stakeholders and partners in progress.
