NIN Registration Suffers Major Setback as NIMC Workers Down Tools Nationwide.


The application process for the National Identification Number is running into more troublesome waters, as Nigerians are being left unattended at the registration centres.

This is because workers at the National Identity Management Commission have gone on strike. (Assumes that NIMC is synonymous with identity management.)

Officers with some of the government agencies tracked by Channels Television include Lagos, Abuja, Bauchi, and Taraba.

However, workers at the factory were unwilling to accept the job applications, citing their demands for better welfare packages from the Federal Government.

One of the staff at the NIN offices said that a recent rise in the number of client visits has created a great deal of stress for them.

The resident told our reporter that the government does not care about their protection as they go to hundreds of residents daily without protective kits.

In the nation’s capital, Abuja, the staff complained about insufficient protective equipment, inadequate wages, and an insufficient number of staff.

They allege that many of their members have been sickened by the agency and that the management has ignored these members.


Due to the NIMC office in Bauchi State being closed to new applicants, NIN employees now start a nationwide strike.
The workers were concerned about the large crowds who arrived daily to register, and the breaches of Company protocol.

They threatened to continue unrest until pertinent authorities resolved the issues in question.


Similar demonstrations also occurred in both Bauchi, and other parts of Nigeria where the workers of NIMC joined their counterparts to down tools.

The decision not to work (by this civil servants union) is in accordance with a guideline issued by the NIMC Unit of the Association of Senior Civil Servants of Nigeria, an affiliate of the Trade Union Congress (TUC).


The applicants in Bauchi were locked outside the NIMC office because no one would serve them.

Some employees who saw the NIMC premises claimed that their demands for better working conditions, promotion, and better personal protective equipment have been a long-standing problem.

In Taraba, the workers understand the poor state of service and the underlying risks to their wellbeing.
