ISA PANTAMI STATE ONE CONDITION FOR VISITING A NIMC OFFICE

Isa Pantami, minister of communication and digital economy, has said the enrolment for the National Identification Number (NIN) should not consume the time of the applicants. The minister made this known on Friday, January 8, during a programme on Channels TV, adding that the enrolment should not take more than five minutes. Pantami further stated that prospective applicants can “complete the form virtually without visiting any office.

“He, however, said the only condition for visiting National Identity Management Commission (NIMC) is because of other important updates into the electronic database like biometrics.

“You can complete the form virtually without visiting any office but there are things that require you (to be there) physically like your biometrics; you cannot submit your biometrics without you (being there) physically” .

“Each person takes around three to five minutes to complete the registration and go as long as you have completed your form.”

While speaking on the large crowds besieging the NIMC offices across the country, the communication minister said 95% of NIN applicants appear at the agency’s offices uninvited.

“All the crowds you have been seeing in Abuja or Lagos, 90 per cent or even 95 per cent of them were not part of those invited to be captured. They only go there and stay outside the gates.”
