New National ID card to be issued via banks — FG

The National Identity Management Commission (NIMC) has announced that the forthcoming national ID card will be distributed to applicants through their banks.

Collaborating closely with the Nigerian Interbank Settlement System (NIBSS), NIMC aims to streamline the issuance process.

According to a recent update shared on the X platform, NIMC disclosed that the cards will be seamlessly integrated into the existing protocols for issuing Debit/Credit cards by banks.

Applicants are instructed to request their cards, linked with their NIN (National Identification Number), via the self-service online portal, NIMC offices, or their respective banks.

This innovative initiative will utilize the AFRIGO card scheme, a domestic system empowered by NIBSS, ensuring efficiency and reliability in card distribution. 

Moreover, holders will have the flexibility to collect their cards from designated centers or opt for delivery to their preferred location, albeit at an additional cost borne by the applicants.
