Admission seekers besiege Abuja NIN offices for registration
Following last year’s announcement by the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) that it will no longer register candidates who do not have a National Identity Number (NIN) for the 2020 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME), hundreds of university admission seekers yesterday besieged offices of the National Identity Management Commission (NIMC) to register and get their NIN.
A visit to NIMC offices at the federal secretariat and another beside Federal Inland Revenue Service (FIRS) close to Berger junction showed many standing on long queues for registration to obtain their NIN slips to enable them register for this year’s UTME.
The NIMC office close to the FIRS was very crowded compared to the one at the secretariat with a many security guards assisting and controlling the crowd.
One of the NIN enrollees, Azeezat, who came from Niger State, described the NIN registration process as ‘little slow.’
She said: “The NIN registration is a little slow and you can see that the place is crowded and many want to get the number. It is free of charge but my disappointment is that they are only giving us a piece of paper saying that we should come back for the original later.”
