Nigeria In One Minute

NIMC: Fast on cash liquidation, slow on ID card production and delivery

Seven years after its inception and with a huge amount of money already allocated to it by the federal government, the National Identity Management Commission is yet to meet its mandate of capturing all Nigerians on its database and issuing them with valid identity cards, clearly setting the stage for an unending journey to the national identity card programme, as was the case with its predecessor, the Directorate of National Civic Registration.

A detailed investigation carried out by Vanguard over a period of time on the operations of the agency across the country, shows that official corruption orchestrated by political influence coupled with misplaced priorities and outright ineptitude has stifled the hands of the commission in meeting its goals and turned it into a mere centre of waste.
