NIN Would Be Linked With BVN And TIN -Hajiya Hadiza Ali-dagabana


The General Manager of the LR CS of NIMC has stated that at the end of the NIN SIM card linkage drive that is currently ongoing across the country; there would be a harmonization of that database with all the other established databases already present in the country. She stated this while representing Engr. Aliyu Azeez, the MD/CEO of the NIMC on the weekly program of the Federal Radio Cooperation of Nigeria, “Have Your Say”. Hajiya Ali-Dagabana said that one of the mandates of the commission was to harmonize all the databases across the country that were already in existence, such as the BVN (which is already in the process of linking its approximate 16million users to the NIN platform), TIN, Drivers’ license, International Passport amongst others. Presently one cannot acquire or renew an international passport without a NIN and very soon, the same would apply to drivers’ licenses. These centers have all been approved to become NIN data capture centers as well to aid the registration process. “As of today, the major problems we are having is in the harmonization of the different databases and to fast track this process, a harmonization committee was set up so that a centralized database with NIN as its foundation bedrock can be established, once a uniform biometric system is established all data capture would be synced to our database.” She stated. “A harmonized database would enable the government to adequately provide amenities for its citizens while also providing accurate information as to what sectors of the economy require urgent attention. This is the position held by the Vice President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo and we can surely see that the country is headed in the right direction via database harmonization. “Over the next three years, at a cutoff date, all information captured would be harmonized, and then going forward, NIN would then be administered at birth and carried on for life, thereafter being the introduction piece that would be used to acquire others as the child grows into adulthood. Currently, we are aware that these information are usually secondary especially for the older generations as such we still allow for changes to be made to names and date of birth but that would be a thing of the past in the future.” She concluded by saying that private license operators have been activated and would be visible everywhere in public. She stated that one company had even provided images of its mobile registration center while others have indicated a methodology of going house to house. She enjoined Nigerians to employ Covid-19 protocols all through the process while reminding them that the registration is free as the government has already paid for it. “Anyone asking you to pay for registration should be reported with documented evidence”
