If the NIMC and other Nigerian agencies can get their acts together, this would make life a little easier - picture walking into an immigration office to get a passport, then producing your NIN and, snap!, your photo and bio-metric details appear their computer screens from NIMC's database.
No more waiting to get your bio-metrics and other data captured, you just go on straight to processing your passport.
Now that would be nice.
If only...

Politics / 10 Handy Images On The National ID Number (nimc's) by ProudUSA: 5:42pm On Oct 27, 2017
Nigeria's National Identity Management Commission has been frequently criticised for its slow performance (especially with so many people complaining about the rate of issuance of their National ID cards).

Despite this though, NIMC's website does have interesting content littered across it pages.

For instance take a look at this page:

NIN in Simple Images

Here are ten handy images offering quick information on the National Identification Number (NIN).

The images can also be downloaded (right-click on each image and select “Save image as…” from the menu which appears) and shared with family and friends.

...because I guess they're importing the cards.

That might honestly just be the problem. Given the project began some 9 years ago, the then NIMC management should have stocked up on cards and equipment before commencing enrolment of over 180 million Nigerians. Poor planning on their part.

Let's try and see if it works.
Indeed, it's quite an ambitious project (even other African countries attempting the same initiative).

The NIN is set to be used for all transactions in Nigeria requiring identity verification so you'll be using your NIN for:

- obtaining your National e-ID card
- travel (international passport application & acquisition)
- opening personal bank accounts
- getting your driver's license
- obtaining your Permanent Voters' Card
- participating in the National Health Insurance Scheme
- payment of your taxes
- transactions related to your contributory pension scheme
- access to welfare and other relevant services from the Nigerian Government
- transactions with social security implications
- land transactions subject to the Land Use Act
- any other transactions NIMC may so prescribe and list in the Federal Government Gazette

Your NIN is your personal information so keep it away from prying eyes!

So NIN is like the National Insurance Number in the UK and social security number in the US?

Politics / State Of Emergency And Curfew Declared In US Town Of Ferguson by ProudUSA: 2:03am On Aug 17, 2014
Oh, boy.

Mo. gov. declares state of emergency, curfew in Ferguson

FERGUSON, Mo. — Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon declared a state of emergency and curfew in Ferguson, Mo., on Saturday, following nights of protests after 18-year-old Michael Brown was shot and killed by a police officer.

"If we're going to have justice, we must first have and maintain peace," Nixon said at a Saturday afternoon press conference. "The eyes of the world are watching."

Captain Ron Johnson of the Missouri State Highway Patrol says the curfew will run from midnight to 5 a.m. local time Sunday and will be enforced through conversations, not tear gas and tanks.
"We will survive this and will make a change," Johnson says.
Malik Shabazz, a member of Black Lawyers for Justice, said he has been working with a coalition of groups to help disperse crowds and keep the peace in Ferguson for the past several days.

Now, he is worried the curfew will make it harder for him to help authorities. He thinks the curfew asks people to go home too early. The past few nights, Shabazz said, people went home around 1:30 a.m.
He asked Johnson to extend the curfew during the news conference, where it was announced. Johnson however said it would stand.
"I don't want our people to get hurt," he said. "It's Saturday night. Twelve midnight is an early time. ... I can't be responsible for his timeline so it is what it is."

Margaret Huang, deputy executive director of Amnesty International USA, disagrees with the curfew.
"It's clear that the community doesn't feel heard," Huang says. "It's hard to build trust when the governor won't meet with community members and restricts their movements with a curfew. The people of Ferguson should not have their rights further restricted."

Daniel Moore, 42, of Ferguson said he thought a curfew would only make things more tense among protesters and the police. Moore said he fears police will use the curfew as an excuse to harass people on foot and in cars.
"It's stupid," Moore said as he stood among fellow protesters at QuikTrip. "They just want to control everything. ... I guess they what us to obey — I can't tell if I will."
Derrick Brown, 25, said he was optimistic that people would abide by the curfew but wasn't sure whether he supported it.
"It'll be interesting to see the crowd move at midnight," Brown said. "I'm curious to see how that process will unfold."
