COVID-19: Banky W Faults Government Decision To Continue NIN Registration

Nigerian entertainer and politician Banky W, says the Federal Government’s decision to go ahead with the National Identification Number (NIN) registration is unnecessary.

This comes after the federal government moved the deadline for the NIN registration till February 9, 2021.

The singer took to his twitter account to lash at the Government’s poor management of the situation. According to him, the registration is unnecessary during a second wave of the pandemic.

Calling it madness, he tweeted:

“This is completely responsible of us as a country, to insist on this mad scramble for NIN numbers in the middle of Covid’s 2nd wave. People are dying. We should be smarter/wiser/better than this for goodness sake.”

See his post below:

The NIN is provided by the National Identity Management Commission (NIMC) upon enrolment into the National Identity Database and is used to capture an individual’s records.
