NIN has become a compulsory thing in the country.
It is more or less a do or die affair because at the end of it you will either do it or do it.
It beats the government to now reiterate Nigerians about the use of National Identity Number, to link to their sim, in order to further call Process. It is now very compulsory.
It was actually disclosed by Malam Adamu Adamu, minister of information on Thursday, in Abuja Nigeria, during the 2020 ministerial press briefing.
This also translated to JAMB, linking their own details in terms of working out modalities with the use of the National Identity Number management commission (NIMC) for implementation.
In respect to what the minister said, the use of NIN for jamb registration is very sacrosanct and now a government policy.
As it stands, JAMB is collectively working with NIMC to ensure the sustainability of this policy and eradicate extreme registration.
This registration will take them from their SSCE to a tertiary institution which will serve as proof that they’ve registered under NC.
In his statement, he added that the government has built, developed, and up to standard JAMB examination centers over 650 halls to enable candidates to write their exams, while also planning to build 800 centers this year and 1,000 another year and 1,200 in the year 2023.
It was noted that they vehemented this compulsory use of NIN for post UTME registration two years back.
But as time went on, it was neglected, as everything ceased. That particular project was abandoned when they saw that it wasn’t visible.
The question is, will they be able to achieve these plans in this 2021 UTME registration?
There are no two ways about it that a typical Nigerian will have to stay without registering their number with NIMC.
It is not something anyone should argue about, because the aftermath is always the said word.
Thankful to NIMC for extending the date for registration to enable the people yet to register.
