By: Emmanuel Ibitoye

In a strategic move to enhance operational efficiency and address challenges in National Identify Management Commission (NIMC), the Director General and Chief Executive Officer, Engr. Abisoye Odusote-Coker, has approved the distribution of supplementary enrollment systems to all states. This initiative aims to streamline NIN enrollment processes and increase overall operational capacity.

The announcement was made through a statement by the Commission’s Head of Corporate Communications, Kayode Adegoke, on Wednesday. The provision of these additional enrollment devices reflects the DG/CEO’s dedication to improving operations and overall effectiveness.

Adegoke mentioned that these systems have already been installed and are in use across all states. The impact includes a reduction in the time spent by applicants and an increase in the number of applicants attended to daily.

The statement further revealed that monitoring and evaluation teams have been dispatched nationwide to ensure the smooth running of enrollment and modification exercises. These teams are also tasked with ensuring strict compliance with a zero-tolerance stance against extortion and unethical practices.

Engr. Coker-Odusote has maintained a firm stand against extortion, directing that any staff found engaging in such practices will face consequences in accordance with the constitution and existing Public Service Rules. Applicants who experience extortion are encouraged to report such incidents through official channels, including the phone line (08155015388, 07002255646), and email (ieu@nimc.gov.ng, nimccustomercare@nimc.gov.ng).
