NIN Registration To Be Suspended Over Large Crowd
The Minister of State for Health, Dr. Olorunnimbe Mamora, has given a hint that the ongoing National Identification Number, NIN, registration may be suspended as a result of large crowds.
Mamora Stated this while speaking on Channels Television’s Sunrise Daily on Monday.
He urged the National Identity Management Commission, NIMC, to go back to the drawing board and re-arrange the process to avoid large crowds at its centres nationwide.
According to Mamora, who is also a member of the Presidential Task Force, PTF on COVID-19, the government has a duty to ensure citizens are protected at all times.
His statement reads:
“I don’t feel good-looking at the picture where people are gathered in multitude; it is like a superspreader event which we don’t like.
“But I’m also aware that the relevant ministry which is the communications and digital economy is looking at this.
“My understanding is that the whole process may be suspended, so as to reorder the whole process in terms of management of the crowd.”Follow us on Instagram @sofovilla | Follow us on Twitter @sofovilla | Like our page on Facebook via @sofovillamedia
