National ID cards to replace voters’ cards – NIMC

-

- Advertisment -

The ongoing national identity registration being carried out by the National Identity Management Commission, NIMC, will be used to complement the nation’s permanent voter cards.

According to President Muhammadu Buhari,  Nigerians who want their votes to count must ensure that they are captured under the scheme.

Buhari spoke briefly with State House correspondents shortly after he registered for the scheme at the lobby of the Presidential Villa’s Council Chambers.

Director-General of NIMC, Chris Onyemenam, later presented President Buhari  his temporary identity card.

Onyemenam later told journalists that seven million Nigerians had been captured under the scheme.

He expressed the hope that the figure would increase very soon with the synergy currently going on between the commission and Ministries, Departments and Agencies.
