The National Identity Management Commission, NIMC is set to commence enrolment of Nigerian adults and children in South Africa into its database for the issuance of the National Identification Number, NIN.
The commission’s Director-General Aliyu Aziz said this in a statement issued in Abuja.
Aziz said that the launch of the diaspora enrolment in South Africa was in collaboration with a private firm in a bid to ensure that Nigerians living outside the country were not disenfranchised.
According to him, six Nigerian companies have been licensed to work with their respective partners across all countries such as Africa, Asia, Europe and America.
Aziz said that the six companies would carry out the enrolment of Nigerian adults and children in the diaspora into the National Identity Database.
