NIMC Issues Fresh Guidelines For NIN Enrollment

by Jay

Following renewed calls by the Federal Government for Nigerians to register and enroll for the National Identification number, The National Identity Management Commission (NIMC) has adopted booking for the National Identity Numbers (NIN) to avoid the spread of COVID-19 pandemic at registration centres across the country.

In a statement by its spokesperson, Kayode Adegoke, personal information would be collected for scheduling an enrolment appointment.

The statement also warns citizens not to give personal information other than what is required by the booking register.

It is also learnt that the recent Federal Government’s policy which requires mobile network subscribers to update their SIM registration with a valid National Identification Number (NIN) has occasioned a huge demand for the NIN with a crowd visiting the NIMC Enrolment Centres nationwide.

Adegoke also said,

“Effective December 30, 2020, attending to applicants would be based on Booking System. For bookings, applicants are to visit any of the NIMC Offices closest to them during stipulated business hours (9 am – 1 pm).

“Although the policy has been in place since 4th February 2020 applicants are now crowding all the centres. Personal Information would be collected for the sole purpose of scheduling an enrolment appointment. Please do not include any personal information other than what is required by the booking register.

“Once admitted into the office, a Number-Issuing queue management system will be in place to ensure orderliness and strict adherence to COVID-19 Protocols.

“As a responsible Commission, we fully understand that safety comes first, as such, only individuals with facemask would be allowed entrance into our premises.

“We urge the general public to cooperate with us as we work assiduously to respond to the new normal.”
