FG launches NIMC Self-Service Enrolment App to ease registration
The Federal Government has launched the National Identity Management Commission's (NIMC) Self-Service Enrollment System in a bid to make the National Identity Number, NIN, accessible to Nigerians.
The system, powered by Banksforte Limited, was launched by the Minister of Interior, Hon. Olubunmi Tunji-Ojo, and the acting Director General/CEO of NIMC, Engr. Abisoye Coker-Odusote, at the National Identity Day celebration on Saturday.
In an interview with the Daily Post, Dayo Bankole, the Managing Director of Barnksforte Limited, explained that the App would help end the bottlenecks of NIN enrolment, as well as provide name, age, marital status, and other NIN-related updates.
He noted that Nigerians in rural areas can access the App nationwide.
According to him, the system is going to be a game changer in NIN enrollment.
“The problem this is going to be solving is allowing people to take care of changing their addresses, their date of birth, and their names, in case they get married, at the comfort of their home rather than traveling and spending a lot of money at the National Identity Management Commission’s office and incurring more expenses to be able to change names.
“Once we have a smartphone, you can download the app, register, change your data, and send it in, and those will approve it,” he stated.
