National Identity Management Commission, NIMC, Nasarawa State Office says, there will be no extension of the February ninth, twenty-twenty-one deadline.
The Head of Operations of the Commission in the State, Mr Suleiman Ibrahim, made this known in a chat with Radio Nigeria in Lafia.
Mr Ibrahim said the Commission had booked over three thousand enrollees for the NIN registration but could only attend to about two hundred persons per day in order to contain the further spread of Coronavirus across the State.
The Head of Operations who further explained that the ongoing NIN registration is not for only Nigerian citizens but foreign legal residents, called on Nigerians to make efforts to register in time, to avoid disconnection of their mobile number (s) after February ninth, twenty-twenty-one.
Mr Suleiman Ibrahim who noted that new registration for fresh enrollees is free, stressed that enrollees could download the form online, fill-in, and submit it at any NIMC’s office across States and Local Government Areas in the country.
According to him, the Commission only charged enrollees who want to make modifications to their already registered information.
“If you are already captured on our database, and you want to modify your date of birth it is 15,000 naira. If you want to replace a lost plastic NIN Card, it costs 5,000 Naira. If you lost your NIN and want to retrieve it, you pay over 800 naira at the Cyber Cafe & bank including bank charges,and generate remitter at NIMC’s office.”.
