The National Identity Management Commission NIMC, has concluded plans to extend National Identification Number, NIN enrolment to Nigerians in the Diaspora, who are residing in Austria and Germany.

The Director General NIMC,  Aliyu Aziz said this in a statement issued by General Manager, Operations/Corporate Communications, NIMC Abdulhamid Umar in Abuja.

Aliyu said that the exercise would involve the demographic and biometric data capture of Nigerians residing in Austria and Germany in collaboration with Biosec Solution Limited, licensed by NIMC to carry out enrolment across the globe.

He noted that the extension was to ensure that Nigerians in Diaspora were captured in the process.

He said that it was in line with NIMC’s mandate to populate the National Identity Database NIDB and issue the NIN to all Nigerians and legal residents.
