The National Database Harmonisation Committee has proposed three years for the capture of 180 million Nigerians and other residents in the National Identification card scheme.

The issuance of the National Identity Cards which started several  years ago had been slowed down due to multiplicity of data collection points but the harmonisation committee had tried to achieve a one-stop centre.
