January 12, 2021

Nigerians in their hundreds have stormed the National Identity Management Commission in Lagos to register for the National Identification Number.




The crowd shunned social distancing, exposing more people to the dreaded coronavirus.


This is coming as the deadline for registration draws closer.


A statement by the NIMC shows that the exercise will close around February.


The statement said:


 “The National Task Force on NIN and SIM Registration met today (yesterday). Resolutions reached at the meeting include: that FG has approved three weeks extension for subscribers with NIN from December 30, 2020 to January 19; extended by six weeks extension for subscribers without NIN from December 30, 2020 to February 9, 2021.


 “NIMC has provided strategies to enable citizens attend the registration in full compliance with COVID-19 protocols, particularly the use of facemasks which remains mandatory and maintenance of social distancing.
