The National Identity Management Commission has revealed that telecommunication companies can now conduct NIN registration.

Telecommunications companies will now be able to register Nigerians who have not gotten their National Identification Number.

According to Punch, the revelation was made by National Identity Management Commission.

NIMC said the measure is to reduce the large crowds at its officers.

Director-General, NIMC, Aliyu Aziz, said some other private and public organizations had also been licensed by the commission to provide NINs in order to address the crowds at the commission’s offices.

This came as workers of the commission told Punch on Tuesday that the Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Isa Pantami, had constituted a committee to address the demands of NIMC employees.

NIMC workers had downed tools on January 7, 2021, in protest against the poor welfare issues at the commission, but their strike was suspended after the intervention of the minister.

Responding to an inquiry as regards measures taken by NIMC with respect to complaints by citizens and the crowds at the commission’s offices, Aziz said mobile network operators had been empowered to also give the identity numbers.

“We have licensed private and public sector organisations including telcos ( telecommunications companies) so as to create more centres,” he stated in a WhatsApp message to our correspondent.

On December 15, 2020, the Federal Government declared that after December 30, 2020, all SIMs that were not registered with valid NINs on the network of telecommunications companies would be blocked.

It later extended the December 30, 2020 deadline following widespread opposition against the earlier announcement and gave three weeks’ extension for subscribers with NIN from December 30, 2020 to January 19, 2021.

It also gave six weeks’ extension for subscribers without NIN from December 30, 2020 to February 9, 2021, but many organizations had called for a further deadline extension or outright suspension of the NIN registration process due to the large crowds who had yet to have their NINs.

On the meeting between NIMC workers and the communication minister, the President, Association of Senior Civil Servants of Nigeria, NIMC Unit, Asekokhai Lucky, said some resolutions were reached.

He said the minister told the union that some of the demands being presented by the workers were new to him, as he only took over the supervisory role of NIMC in October 2020.

“So what he (Pantami) did was to set up a seven-man committee to work on the issues and submit a report to him in two weeks’ time,” Lucky stated.

Lucky said the 21-day ultimatum earlier issued the management of NIMC was still in force, although there had been calls for the union to step down the ultimatum.
