The National Identification Management Commission (NIMC) says it registered and issued national identification numbers to about 38 million Nigerians out of an estimated 200 million.

Aliyu Aziz, director-general of the commission, said this on Monday at the ‘pre-EOI submission conference’ put together for prospective licencees of the digital identity ecosystem project.

As part of the plan to address the challenges associated with providing digital identification for all Nigerians, Aziz said the ‘ecosystem project’ aims at leveraging “on the capacities and capabilities of public and private sector organisations in achieving digital ID rollout scale within three to five years”.
