The federal government has begun payment of outstanding arrears of National Identity Management Commission (NIMC’s) Front-End Enrolment Partners (FEPs).

The commission’s Director of Business Development and Commercial Services, Mrs Carolyn Folami, disclosed this at the weekend during the commission’s management retreat in Abuja.

“So far, 96 FEPs have been revalidated. It is still under progress, and as more are revalidated, they will be onboarded. This month (February), we began paying the FEPs’ outstanding arrears in accordance with the DG/CEO’s earlier promise. We have now paid well over 15 companies and are attempting to clear the arrears. We’ve done some housekeeping. Currently, we are only working with Android smartphones”, Folami said.

The NIMC director said the revalidation effort was intended to sanitise the system while correcting identified gaps.

She utilised the opportunity to announce the start of payment of the remaining arrears owing to the FEPs, assuring them of the commission’s commitment to settling the outstanding balance as soon as possible.

But in her address, Engr Abisoye Coker-Odusote, Director General and CEO of NIMC, charged the commission’s Front End Enrolment Partners (FEPs) with ensuring that no one is left out of the National Identity Number (NIN) registration process.

She also tasked them with complying with the terms of the Nigerian Data Protection Act.

She further advised enrolment agents and commission personnel to be professional when providing services to members of the public.
