The Plateau State Governor, Simon Lalong, has said that the Federal government has granted the state the licence to carry out National Identification Number (NIN) registration.

In a statement issued on Sunday by the Governor’s Director of Press and Public Affairs, Macham Makut, the licence granted the state is subject to renewal depending of the performance of the state after one year.

By the approval, Plateau State would now begin the registration of its residents into the National identity database as directed by NIMC. This is as communicated to the Governor by the Minister of Communications and Digital Economy through the Director-General of the National Identity Management Commission, Aliyu Aziz.

According to the government, the approval will ease the stress faced by the residents of Plateau in partaking in the ongoing NIN registration. He said it would also help in making sure that all residents of the state are captured into the National identification database.


“Now that Plateau State has been granted the licence to provide data capture and enrolment services for the issuance of the National Identity Number, we are going to ensure that we create centres in all the 17 Local Government Areas and other strategic towns in order to ensure seamless, quick and efficient enrollment of all our citizens and other Nigerians residing in the State,” he said.
