The National Identity Management Commission (NIMC), says it has so far enrolled more than 2.3 million persons in Kano State since the inception of the programme in 2007.

The Coordinator of NIMC in the state, Mr Illo Sarkin-Yamma, made this known in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Wednesday 6th 2021 in Kano.

He said that following the Federal Government’s directive that Nigerians should link their National Identification Number (NIN) with their SIM cards, the Commission had designated 52 centers for registration.

According to him, the aim is to fast track the enrolment of eligible Nigerians in the 44 local government areas of the state. Nigerians follow instructions to make things right for the government.
