NIMC says anyone without NIN will not be regarded as a Nigerian


The National Identity Management Commission (NIMC) has said it has a target, to register 28 million Nigerians into the National Identification Number (NIN) system by the end of 2017.

The Director General of NIMC, Mr Aliyu Aziz, made this known at a media briefing on Saturday in Lagos.

Aziz said that anyone without the NIN issued by the commission, ran the risk of being regarded as a non-citizen.

“The commission embarked on an enrolment strategy in 2012 which has grown exponentially since 2015.

“Now we have reached 18.5 million and the focus which is our goal is that by 2017 ending, the commission would have reached 28 million people.

“The main aim of the registration is to have a single identification,” he said.
