Succor has come the way of those who lost their national identity cards, though this did not come without payment of fee.
The National Identity Management Commission, NIMC, has revealed that the renewal of the national identity card will cost N5,000, payable through remita.
This was contained in a tweet by the commission in their official handle (@nimc_ng) in Abuja on Monday, October 14, which was further confirmed to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) by a staff of the Corporate Department of the NIMC.
NIMC also said that applicants who wish to renew their card can visit any NIMC office with the required documents to obtain their card.
“The requirements include a written application with attached proof of payment receipt made through remita, bank teller, NIN slip and submit it at our office.
“Card renewal costs N5,000 payable through remita.” NIMC tweeted.
The tweet also explained that the main focus of the commission was to ensure that all Nigerians are enrolled.
“Our main focus is ensuring that all Nigerians are enrolled and issued their NIN and Your NIN is the most important token of your enrollment.
According to the commission, Nigerians can authenticate their National Identity Number through NIMC verification portal.
“Your NIN can be authenticated through our verification portal without your card” NIMC tweeted.
