The Federal Government  has ordered all agencies providing services listed under Section 27 of the NIMC Act and Section 1 of the Mandatory Use of the National Identification Number Regulations 2017 to demand the NIN from citizens or legal residents before offering them any service with effect from January 2, 2019. 

This is furtherance of the Federal Executive Council’s approval of the immediate commencement of the implementation of a strategic roadmap,  for Digital Identity Ecosystem in Nigeria.  

The order leverages on the framework of existing capabilities and infrastructure within different government agencies and private sector organisations to carry out enrolment of Nigerians and Legal residents into the National Identity Database (NIDB).  

Government agencies and commissions like the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) and the National Immigration Service (NIS) amongst others will be required to demand the NIN from citizens and legal residents going forward. 

At the moment Nigeria has 33million people captured on its National Identity Number database.
