The National Identity Management Commission (NIMC) has announced that any National Identification Card or National Identity Number (NIN) issued in Kwara State before 2012 is not valid.
The NIMC acting Coordinator in the state, Mr Paul Popoola, who stated this at the University of Ilorin, said NIN registration in the early 2000s had been rendered unacceptable by the law that created the commission.
Popoola while calling on Nigerians who are yet to obtain the card to do so without further delay explained that NIMC registration centres across Kwara would remain open every working day to capture residents of the state.
He commended the University of Ilorin for providing space within its premises to register the residents for the NIN.
“The university has been most magnanimous and visionary for giving the commission a space within its premises to capture interested citizens since 2014,’’ he said.
