The Federal Capital Territory Administration (FCTA) has made the National Identification Number (NIN) mandatory for land allocation within the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).
The Honourable Minister of Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Muhammad Musa Bello, disclosed this when the Director General, National Identity Management Commission (NIMC), Engr. Aliyu Aziz, paid him a courtesy visit.
According to a statement from NIMC’s Head, Corporate Communication, Mr Loveday Ogbonna, the minister expressed the need for every land allocated to be matched to an individual through the NIN in order to track and prevent multiple allocations of land and ensure fairness and equity in the allocation process.
He commended Engr. Aziz for the astronomical increase in enrolment figures and measures he has put in place to ensure safety of data of Nigerians and legal residents in the National Identity database (NIDB) while ensuring credibility and integrity of data collected by NIMC.
The minister also commended the ongoing harmonisation efforts, noting that it was a step in the right direction to check duplication of functions among data collecting agencies.
In his response, Engr Aziz, thanked the minister for the steps he had taken so far to ensure the success of the National Identity Management System, and assured the minister of a continued collaboration for the success of both organisations.
