Isa Pantami: National Identity Number Will Be Made Compulsory Soon by Racoon(m): 11:04pm On Oct 14
The Federal Government, through the Ministry of Communications and Digital Economy, has revealed that the National Identity Number (NIN) will soon be made mandatory for Citizens for accessing government services and interventions.

Minister in charge of the ministry, Dr Isa Ali Ibrahim (Pantami), said this when he received a briefing from the Management team of the National Identity Management Commission (NIMC) on their activities following the final transfer of the supervision of the commission to the ministry on the 7th October 2020.

He called on the commission to ensure a 500% increase in the number of monthly Citizens’ Digital Identity Enrolments-up from the current 500,000 monthly enrolments to 2.5million monthly enrolments.

The minister, however commended the Director-General of NIMC, Engr Aliyu A. Aziz, for his commitment, noting that there has been a considerable increase in enrolments since he became the Chief Executive Officer of NIMC but maintained that there is still a need to raise the bar even higher.

He said “This is imperative because the National Identity Number (NIN) will soon be made mandatory for accessing government services and interventions.”

He assured the NIMC team that he will do all he can, to address the challenges, especially those of funding, being faced by the commission.

According to his Spokesperson, Mrs. Uwa Suleiman, the minister also stated that he is “committed to ensuring that citizens easily obtain secure digital identity” and urged them to “enroll as soon as possible.”

He noted that “Digital Identity is one of the key requirements of any digital economy and it is captured under Pillar #6 of the National Digital Economy Policy and Strategy (NDEPS) for a Digital Nigeria.”

Have you tried getting your NIN? They won't attend to you if you don't have a BVN n the name on your BVN is what you must use to get your NIN.

okay sir, most times its not what you want the citizens to do but the problems we have with you leaders is don't use it as an avenue to siphon our generational wealth and give us conducive environment to do business. There are many graduates who never use their certificate to work but living with their plan B and C to Z which I'm one of them, yet you strangle our neck with different policies and many who want to eat through sought from the little profit.

Who is importing Fulani to Nigeria from various places?

Ordinary ID card, the FG has been unable to produce since 6 years putting Chukwuemeka's head on Fatima's head, putting Yemi's name on Yaro's. Go ahead and make it compulsory.

Actually, this Is one of the steps to get off the USA Travel ban list.

We need a national data base where the American Authority can easily get information about Nigerians living in America.

This is understandable as it is literally a necessity for every nation have a record of her citizens, however, I can only but hope there are measures in place that ensures refugees/illegal migrants from neighbouring countries don't acquire the IDs and begin to exercise undeserved rights as such is done during our rigged elections. Well, predict events and cashout big via Weendict.com

It seems like the protest isn't affecting the government of the day; N1.6 Billion has been allocated to fight corruption a while ago and now this!

Non of Pantami's demands ranging from asking the telecoms to reduce high internet rates to multichoice pay per view has ever seen the day of light!
