Smartphones To Be Used For National ID Card Registration


Nigerians who may not have done their enrollment for the National ID card programme will soon be having the opportunity to do so on their Smartphones.

The National Identity Management Commission (NIMC) announced that it had concluded plans to provide pre-enrollment services on smartphones.

This is contained in a statement signed by NIMC General Manager on Corporate Communications Abdulahamid Umar. According to the statement, the step was taken to ease the sign-up process for Nigerians.

“This development will ensure that citizens can start their enrollment using their smart phones, a development that would ensure that in the next couple of months, citizens, of all ages, would have completed their demographic enrollment before they proceed to NIMC enrollment centres for their biometric data capture to complete their enrollment,” the statement said.

It is believed that the initiative will help to decongest the enrollment centres and also ensure that citizens enroll at their convenience before the deadline.
