 40 Secs Read 

While some Nigerians might still be wondering the need for the creation of the new Digital Identity Ecosystem, the government has explained that the programme was put in place to facilitate the collection of the biometric data of Nigerians all over the country within the shortest time possible .

According to the Director- General of the National Identity Management Commission ( NIMC) , Aliyu Aziz , instead of building something new, this is meant to leverage already established capabilities and enrollment facilities of government agencies , partners and private sector organisations in the country.

Aliyu stated this recently at the 2019 lunch time reform seminar organised by the Bureau of Public Service Reforms in the Federal Capital Territory.

Speaking on “ Reinventing Nigeria ’ s Digital Identity Ecosystem , ” he made it known that the National Identity Management Commission  will facilitate collecting of identity data by also making sure that partners collect data and are paid per successful enrollment

According to him, the organization stores data and uses same to offer a Unique ID to those in the country.

He also explained that the mandatory usage of the NIN does not mean everyone must have been enrolled by now, as it will be a continuous thing.
