In my opinion it was a very silly idea to begin with.


NIN registration may be suspended to avoid spreading Covid-19 – Mamora, Health Minister

ON JANUARY 11, 202111:45 AM

Dr. Olorunnimbe Mamora, Minister of State for Health, Monday said that the ongoing registration and National Identification Number enrolment may be suspended due to the rise in the number of Covid-19 cases in the country.

As at yesterday, 100,087 cases have been confirmed by the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC). 1358 are reported dead since Coronavirus stormed Nigeria on February, 2020. Also, about 80,030 persons have been treated and discharged.

On Sunday 10, 2021, NCDC confirmed 1,544 new infections of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) in the country.

This however is a wake-up call to all Nigerian that Covid-19 is real. In other to stem the spread, Mamora while playing host on Channels Television’s Sunrise Daily programme today, said it would be wise if NIN enrolment and registration is suspended.

His words: “I don’t feel good looking at the picture where people are gathered in multitude; it’s like a super-spreader event which we don’t like. But I’m also aware that the relevant ministry which is the communications and digital economy is looking at this.

“My understanding is that the whole process may be suspended so as to reorder the whole process in terms of management of the crowd because it was never intended that it would become a rowdy process like that.


“We have a duty as government to ensure that people are protected; we also have a duty to ensure people comply within the limit of what is good for the society at large.”

That's the only suspension that will interest Nigerians at the moment.

They'll so much celebrate it because of the stress it has caused many.

Hope Pantami will not fight you like he did with Abike

It was never intended That mean you so called leaders don't know anything about management.

If you think this people don't know what they are doing in the first place then you are on long thing, Nigerians generally we are smarter than that and to talk of our government they can only pretend to be naive of some consequences of their actions just for them to achieve what they want which is to shift attention at that moment and to keep most Nigerians busy while they execute some major atrocities....SMH

Foolish trial and error government!
I opened a bank account and verified it fully from home without being physically present at any bank. But these fools want people to contact Covid-19 because they are looking for how to steal money. Who even advises these Idiots?

People are complaining how hard it's to get NIN, Government should do all they can to make it easy for people, using covid-19 as a reason or excuse why it want to suspend NIN registeration while millions of nigerians are yet to get is Improper.
Re: COVID-19: NIN Registration May Be Suspended – Health Minister Mamora by BUSINESSARENAA(m): 12:16pm On Jan 11
As confused as this government . The NIN linking with SIM card was a poorly thought out policy.

A lot of factors where not roperly considered .


Let all stakeholders go back to the drawing board and think out a smart way of going about the whole thing putting every factor into consideration.
