NIN Compulsory For Access To Government Services, Says NIMC

The National Identity Management Commission (NIMC) has said that it is now mandatory for citizens to have the National Identification Number (NIN) in order for them to have access to all government services.

The commission also disclosed that its enrolment, verification, and other identification systems are working optimally.

Speaking in a statement through its Head of Corporate Communications, Kayode Adegoke, the body reassured the public of the provision of top-notch identification services in line with the Federal Government’s effort at providing a reliable, sustainable, and verifiable foundational identification system for all Nigerians and legal residents.

NIMC added that the enrollment and issuance of the NIN are free.

“The commission has zero tolerance for any form of extortion and, as such, enjoins the public to report any case of extortion to – [email protected]

"Information on all approved fees for other services is listed on the Commission’s website- www.nimc.gov.ng.

“Furthermore, NIMC seeks to notify the public that it is aware of the antics of some unscrupulous individuals using its forged document to seek collaboration with state and local governments to collect money to enrol and issue the NIN, especially for students in primary and secondary schools across the country.

“The commission has not sent anyone nor any organization to do so.

"The public is kindly advised to report such individual or organization to: [email protected] or +2348157691011 (WhatsApp only).

“The commission wishes to thank President Muhammadu Buhari, the Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Professor Isa Ali Ibrahim (Pantami), Management, and the staff of NIMC for their worthy contributions to the unprecedented success of the NIN project", the statement reads.
