The National Identity Management Commission (NIMC) has announced that it has adopted a booking system for the National Identification Number (NIN) registration.
According to a press statement by the Head, Corporate Communications signed by Kayode Adegoke, he explained that the recent Federal Government 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 large crowd visiting the NIMC Enrolment Centers nationwide.
The statement said NIMC being mindful of the second wave of the COVID-19 which continues to severely affect public health and cause unprecedented disruptions, the Commission adopted a couple of measures to contain the spread of the virus whilst ensuring its services to Nigerians are not entirely interrupted.
“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 centers. 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 facemasks would be allowed entrance into our premises”, the statement said.
Therefore, the Commission urged the general public to cooperate with them as they work assiduously to respond to the new normal.
