Former Senator representing Kaduna Central has raised questions over the registration for the National Identity Number, NIN.
This was after the National Identity Management Commission, NIMC, announced that foreign diplomats can now enrol for NIN.
Reacting to the announcement, Shehu Sani wondered if the exercise could still be called National Identity if foreign nationals could also partake in it.
He tweeted, “If foreigners are obliged to register for NIN then it can’t be considered as ‘National Identity’.
“And if all Nigerians must do it then of what use is allocating money for National Census?”
