NIN Will Help FG Reveal Identities of Nigerians Using Internet – Isa Pantami
The National Identity number is said to help the Nigerian government and its security agents identify and track Nigerians on the internet. This was disclosed by the Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Isa Pantami at the Nigeria International Partnership Forum in Paris where he was talking about the importance of the National Identity Number, NIN.
He also disclosed that 67 million Nigerians have enrolled for the NIN.
In his speech, he said “NIN“ is going to be the foundation of our economy and also the foundation of our security that whoever happens to go online, his identity will be known by the federal government and also by our security institution.
“As it is today, the enrollment has been over 67 million and most importantly, we are able to capture the most important category of people that come out to do businesses.
“So it becomes a prerequisite to enjoying government services and I believe this will bring more peace of mind to potential investors to know that the government has been doing something significant in that regard.”
