Payment For National E-ID Card To Begin In 2022

The National Identity Management Commission, says payment for issuance of National Identity Card would begin in 2022.

NIMC Director General Mr Aliyu Aziz, said this at the lunch time reform seminar on National Digital Identity Ecosystem Strategic Road Map for enrollment of Nigerians and legal residents into National Identity Database in Abuja on Thursday.

The event was organised by the Bureau of Public Service Reforms in collaboration with NIMC.

Aziz urged Nigerians to make use of the opportunity to get registered and have an identity.

He said the National e-ID Card can only be issued to Nigerians registered into the national identity system and legal residents who have attained the age of 16 years and above, unlike the National Identification Number which is assignable to Nigerians only.
