National Identity Card Registration – Do you need a National ID Card but don’t know how to get it? This article will help guide you on how to go about the National Identity Card registration.

The National ID Card is a valid means of identification which proofs nationality anywhere in the world. It is an official document issued by the government of a country to its citizens to validate their citizenship.

National Identity Card Registration

The National Identity Management Commission (NIMC) is in charge of processing and issuing of National ID Cards in Nigeria.

As a citizen of Nigeria, it is necessary that you own a National ID Card. Although before now, there was nothing like National ID Card in Nigeria, and a result, made citizens of other African countries who lived for a long period in the country to claim citizens of Nigeria. However, this is not the case today!

Initially, when the National ID Card was first introduced, the registration process was stressful as one had to travel a long distance to the designated offices to register.

However, the introduction of computer technology has made it a lot easier for Nigerians to register for National ID Card even from the comfort of their home.
