Ogun State House of Assembly has promised to give logistics support to the National Identity Management Commission (NIMC) to ease the process of obtaining the National Identity Number in the state.
Several people, especially prospective candidates for the 2020 edition of the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME), have been facing difficulty in obtaining the National Identity Number at the NIMC state office in Abeokuta in the past few weeks .
The speaker of the state house of assembly, Olakunle Oluomo, assured of the logistics support while receiving the management team of the agency led by its state co-ordinator, Mr Adeniyi Olatunde, at the assembly complex in Abeokuta.
Oluomo said members of the house would provide power supply at the registration points for the National Identity Number in all the state’s local government areas.
The speaker explained that the support was to facilitate the registration of prospective UTME applicants who are required, by the Joint Admission Matriculation Board (JAMB), to have National Identity number before they can have access to the computer based centres to write the 2020 UTME.
Responding, the state NIMC co-ordinator appreciated the gesture of the lawmakers to ease the major problem of power supply delaying the registration of people for the National Identity Number in the state
He pledged that the agency staff would re-double their efforts to ensure a hitch-free registration for all applicants in the state.
According to Olatunde, the commission has registration points in 18 of the 20 local government secretariats apart from the state headquarters in Abeokuta.
