Taraba State Coordinator, National Identity Management Commission(NIMC), Moses Mamidu says enrolment by the commission is still ongoing.
Speaking with our reporter in Jalingo Moses Mamidu said people should take advantage of the exercise and get themselves registered.
The coordinator explained that importance of obtaining the national identity card cannot be over- emphasized in view of its importance to Nigerians.
He said the national identity card could be used to obtain:
- National Electronic Identity Card,
- International passport,
- Opening of personal Bank accounts,
- Driver’s license,
- Participation in National Health Insurance Scheme, NHIS among others.
Moses revealed that a team of engineers from its headquarters are currently working on installations of network connectivity at Zing, Gassol, Ardo-Kola, Jalingo, and Wukari for easy enrolment in the Centres.
The coordinator explained that to ease the exercise, staff of Ministries, Departments, Agencies and Parastatals should collectively forward names of those yet to be enrolled as they would be allocated appropriate dates for enrolment.
He reminded those that have not collected their National Identity Card and have received text message from NIMC to visit Jalingo Head office for collections.
