NIMC: Those Extorting NIN Applicants Risk Seven Years In Jail by lifezone247(m): 7:30pm On Dec 31, 2020
The National Identity Management Commission, on Thursday, says the enrolment for the National Identification Number is free.

The NIMC also warned those cashing in amid the ongoing NIN registration nationwide to desist as they risk seven years in jail when caught.

The Commission, in a notice posted on its social media platforms on Thursday, encouraged Nigerians to report cases of extortion for onward prosecution.

The notice titled, ‘NIN Enrolment Is Free’, read, “The punishment for extortion if convicted is seven years imprisonment as stipulated in sections 14, 20, & 21, of the Independent Corrupt Practices Commission Act and Sections 10 & 12 of the Code of Conduct Bureau and Tribunal Act.”

When contacted, NIMC spokesman, Kayode Adegoke, told The PUNCH that the warning became pertinent amid complaints by applicants who accuse some staff of the Commission and some third-party agents of extortion.

“The warning is strictly for members of staff not to extort applicants. NIN enrolment is free but people have been complaining of extortion and we have provided the lines for them to file in their evidence. The Commission has zero-tolerance for extortion and according to the ICPC Act, anyone caught risks a jail term of seven years,” Adegoke said in a telephone interview with our correspondent on Thursday.

The PUNCH had earlier reported that the Federal Government through the Nigerian Communication Commission ordered telecommunications companies to deactivate telephone lines of subscribers who failed to link their phones to their National Identity Number.

‌Large crowd thronging the NIMC web portal for the process of obtaining their National Identity Number led to the crash of the portal last week.

As of October, the total number of mobile network connections was 207.58 million, but currently, only 43 million Nigerians have NIN, thus 164 million telephone users are at the risk of being deactivated on January 19, 2021.

2020 .... Has been a year like no other, a year where the only winner is China.... A year where communism, socialism, leftism, wokesm has defeat capitalism, open market, democracy, freedom of speech and expression, individualism.
This has been a year where the world health organization has failed the world by conniving with a communist china to infect the entire world with a deadly pandemic and also misinformed the entire of the dangers of this pandemic creating fear in the development of vaccine through the various media houses such as CNN BBC etc...... A year where media houses with WHO doubted the development of a vaccine within this year as dangerous and harmful and now that they have succeeded in their mission, they are now telling us to take this dangerous and harmful vaccine.
A year where china created the virus but everyone decided to blame it on Donald Trump.
A year where the only growing economy in the world is China.
A year where all the world leaders have decided to lock down their economy and feeding on their reserve.... Leaving only china to be the only growing economy and the only major lender.......... This inturn will have a devastating effect on the world as everyone will be dependent on china including Europe and America.
A year where America has failed the world by moving towards socialism and communism.( These are the two evil words that America in indeed free world has fought against throughout in history from world war 1&2 to Korea and Vietnam war to Iraq war, loosing thousand of Americans lives in order to restore democracy and freedom to other countries) and now china is collaborating with the democrat party to reintroduce socialism and communism back to America. In democrat states such as new York and California, there is an active law to enforce equal opportunity, equal outcome concept,..... That is why there is heavy tax on private businesses and rich individuals in order to render them poor at the expense of the state and large government..... As a result of this large industries are running away from silicon valley and new York to Republican run state like Texas or outside united States.......... Infact in my seminar presentation I clearly states that the death of silicon valley and new York City will coincide with china emerging as a global economy power House ahead of USA.
2020 is also a year of wokesm, elusional racism fight and hate speeches, return our conscience back to 1920s.... Black lives matter, kneeling and fist pumping with hateful messages and anti police slogan.... A year of lawlessness.
A year of opposition by government to freedom of speech, peaceful assembly, freedom of thought and opinion.... A year that the world has forgo her freedom.

A year where my beautiful game of football has been destroy by wokesm, hypocritical taking of knee and pumping of fist, VAR, black lives matter and political messages, LBGT, Corona virus...... the focus is no more on football But on political messages...... Right now I am finding it hard to watch football.

A year where by globalism is considered ahead of a passionate patriotic nationalism...... Such that a leader like Trump who loves his nation and want good things for his country by bringing America job from china and giving it back to American people and improving the economy of America before Corona virus was booted out for Biden, a less loved leader, who doesn't care about American people but global political correctness.


If this kind of year is repeated again, I swear, the identity of the world will change for ever.
