300,000 National Identity Card yet to be Collected

Share This

The National Identity Management Commission (NIMC) has revealed that some 300,000 National ID cards are yet to be collected across Nigeria and is now requesting  that members of the General public who enrolled in the year 2012 up to August 2013 and are yet to pick up their cards to visit the enrolment centres were they registered and pick up their cards which have since been printed and ready for collection.

The Communication’s Head of Corporate Communications, Mr Loveday Ogbonna, stated that the Commission has pasted names of enrollees whose cards have been printed and awaiting collection at various centres to enable such individuals check and present themselves for card collection. He said that some of the people in this category may have changed the phone number they used to register hence they are not able to receive text messages informing them that their cards are ready for collection.

Applicants who have relocated and want their cards transferred to their current location should visit any NIMC office closest to them to request for a card transfer form. They should fill and submit the form to the State Coordinator or Local Government Supervisor for processing. This is possible for those who either received text message or confirmed via the list posted at the enrolment centres that their cards are ready for collection. This service is free for now and available at all enrolment centres.

Ogbonna said that the transfer process was necessitated by a survey carried out by the Customer Care Unit of the commission. He said that the survey showed that over 300,000 enrolled applicants nationwide were yet to pick up their National e-ID cards.

Loveday Ogbonna further said that the reasons were because they had either relocated from the locations where they enrolled or had changed the phone numbers they provided at the point of enrolment into the National Identity Database.
