The National Identity Management Commission (NIMC) has successfully addressed a backlog of more than two million National Identification Number (NIN) modification requests. Engineer Abisoye Coker-Odusote, the Acting Director-General of NIMC, confirmed this accomplishment in a statement on Wednesday.
She emphasized that this achievement reflects NIMC’s dedication to ensuring that every Nigerian has access to reliable and globally accepted identity documents.
“NIMC’s dedicated teams have been working tirelessly to process these backlogs and will not relent in effort to ensure that citizens have a streamlined experience when obtaining their NINs.
“We acknowledge the challenges that many Nigerians faced in the past and appreciate the patience they have shown during this period.
“And now that we have cleared over two million outstanding NIN modification applications, we will continue to work strenuously at all our centres to ensure that whatever requests that are outstanding are cleared as soon as possible,” Coker-Odusote added.
The Director-General of NIMC also highlighted the agency’s dedication to enhancing its communication channels.
She said: “We are in the process of establishing a robust communication system to facilitate the logging of complaints as well as the resolution of issues in a timely manner.
“This is because we understand the importance of addressing concerns promptly and are determined to provide efficient solutions to any challenges that may arise.
“And of course, NIMC is actively investing in world-class infrastructure to better serve the Nigerian population.
“We believe that a strong and modernized infrastructure is crucial for delivering efficient and reliable services to all Nigerians.”
