The National Identity Management Commission has published five regulations guiding the mandatory use of the National Identity Number.

The commission, in a statement signed by the Head, Corporate Communication, NIMC, Loveday Ogbonna, said that this was after an approval was received from the Attorney General of the Federation, and the Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami, in November 2017.

It listed the gazetted regulations as Mandatory Use of the National Identification Number Regulations, 2017; Nigeria Biometrics Standard Regulations, 2017; and Registration of Persons and Contents of the National Identity Database Regulations, 2017.

Others are Access to Register Information in the National Identity Database Regulations, 2017; and Licensing of the Frontend Services of the National Identity Management Commission Regulations, 2017.

Explaining the need for supplementary regulations in the commission, the General Manager, Legal, Regulatory and Compliance Services, Mrs. Hadiza Dagabana, said it was essential towards the realisation of the NIMC mandate in the coming years.

She said, “With the increase and expansion of the commission’s activities, the new policy for the implementation of NIMS and the desire of the commission to develop the identity ecosystem in Nigeria as well as meet its mandate of harmonising all identity-related databases in the country, it is necessary to promulgate regulations which consist of the set of principles, practices, policies, processes and procedures to be utilised to achieve the desired objectives.
