The National Identity Management Commission (NIMC) has resumed the enrollment service for the National Identity Number, NIN, in its offices across the country, the commission said on Friday.

According to the commission, the disruption occasioned by the planned strike action by the Association of Senior Civil Servants of Nigeria, ASCSN, had been resolved.

The Head, Corporate Communications, NIMC, Kayode Adegoke in a statement issued on Friday said the Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Isa Pantami, has intervened in the matter and assured the workers of addressing their grievances.

Adegoke quoted the Minister to have asked the workers to emphathise with Nigerians whose Subscriber Identification (SIM) cards stand to be blocked if not linked with their NIN before the expiration of the deadline for the security of lives and property in the country.

The statement read, “The National Identity Management Commission (NIMC) is glad to inform the general public that normal enrolment services for the National Identification Number (NIN) have been fully restored at all NIMC offices nationwide as the glitches experienced since January 6, 2021, have been sorted out.

“Enrolment services were temporarily disrupted when the local chapter of the Association of Senior Civil Servants of Nigeria (ASCSN) of NIMC embarked on industrial action on Wednesday, January 6, 2021, immediately after their congress.

“However, the Honourable Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Dr Isa Ali (Pantami), who promptly intervened in the matter, has assured the workers he would look into their grievances. He advised them to empathise with Nigerians especially at this time that linkage of the NIN with the Subscriber Identification Module (SIM) cards is ongoing for the security of lives and property in the country.”

Reports say the Director-General of NIMC, Aliyu, pledged his management’s unflinching commitment to ensuring that the welfare, health and safety of all staff of the commission is protected.
