The National Identity Management Commission (NIMC) announced that it had concluded plans to provide pre-enrolment services on smartphones.
This is contained in a statement signed by NIMC General Manager on Corporate Communications Abdulahamid Umar. According to the statement, the step was taken to ease the sign-up process for Nigerians.
“This development will ensure that citizens can start their enrolment using their smart phones, a development that would ensure that in the next couple of months, citizens, of all ages, would have completed their demographic enrolment before they proceed to NIMC enrolment centres for their biometric data capture to complete their enrolment,” the statement said.
It is believed that the initative will help to decongest the enrolment centres and also ensure that citizens enroll at their convenience before the deadline.
