NIMC seeks traditional rulers’ support to improve enrollment
The National Identification Management Commission, NIMC, has solicited for traditional leaders’ support for the enrollment of more people in the country.
The Jigawa State Coordinator of the Commission, Alhaji Aminu Jakada, made the call on Tuesday when he visited the Emir of Dutse Alhaji Nuhu Muhammad Sanusi in his palace.
He said the commission had only registered and issued Identification numbers to two point five million people in the state.
According to him” Kazaure emirate has registered 50%, Hadejia 37%, Dutse 30%, Gumel 25%, and Ringim 23%”
Jakada said the commission in collaboration with some companies has provided 1,500 computers for the successful conduct of the registration exercise.
He, however, solicited the traditional leaders’ support in creating more awareness of the importance of obtaining the identification number.
The Emir of Dutse Alhaji Nuhu Muhammad Sanusi however pledged to join hands with the commission to ensure more people in the emirate are registered.
