Rush for National identity Number disrupts business activities in Zamfara

Rush for National identity Number disrupts business activities in Zamfara (Updated: 2 years ago)


Our correspondent who visited the office along Zaria road in Gusau, reports that the NIMC office appeared surprised to know that more than half of the citizens in Zamfara have not registered their SIM.

A staff member of the organisation who spoke to DAILY POST said, “We did not know that there are a huge population of people in Zamfara state until the Commission gave this order”, he lamented.

“If not that the federal government came out with an iron hand to handle the situation, many people were not ready to obtain the national identity cards”
Peter noted that the staff have not rested as the office has been crowded since the announcement, saying that many come as early as 5:30am waiting for workers to open the gate.

But one of the people who spoke with our correspondent, Hajiya Billkisu said the conditions attached to the national identity card issue discouraged people from registering.

According to her, she had lost her voters card while trying to pack from one place to the other, stressing that she has been in the office three consecutive times for the identity card but the workers always turn her down because she could not meet up with the conditions.

“I don’t have voters card neither do I have a driving license so how do I meet with the conditions” Bilikisu explained that the national identity cards issue has disrupted many business activities in the state, pointing out that businessmen and women have abandoned their legitimate endeavours for the identity card.

“The federal government said that it introduced that policy because of armed banditry but the same government fail t underground that the bandits can also register and update their SIM cards”
