NIMC Registers Six Hundred and Fifty Thousand Citizens in Ekiti.
As Nigerians celebrate National Identity Day, the Ekiti State coordinator of National Identity Management Commission, Mr Gbenga Ifayefunmi says about six hundred and fifty thousand people in the state have been registered into the national identity data base..
Mr Ifayefunmi told Radio Nigeria in Ado Ekiti that the Federal Government would soon develop a policy to ensure massive digital identity registration for Nigerians.
He stated that such digital registration would further assist government to check financial crimes, and assist government in planning for the future.
Mr Ifayefunmi noted that there were challenges associated with registration which had made the commission in Ekiti to decentralize the registration to make it more comfortable to the people.
The Ekiti N.I.M.C coordinator urged the people of the state to ensure their full participation to validate their citizenship of Nigerians.
