NIMC deserves more support on unified data – CASER

The Citizen Advocacy for Social and Economic Rights (CASER) has urged the federal government to give more support to the National Identity Management Commission (NIMC) to actualise the data-driven development agenda.

Executive Director of CASER, Barrister Frank Tietie, said this on Wednesday in Abuja during a state of the nation media briefing.

According to him, if the government is giving maximum support to the NIMC, it will help in the proper planning and deployment of government resources and also help specific and accurate policy implementation.

“If NIMC play its strategic role in the issue of development, Nigeria would experience massive development. We have the NIMC in determining not only the basic and fundamental issues of development but also the more important issue of security.

“We have realised that over the years, the data correction and management system in Nigeria have been very abysmal until the enactment of the National Identity Management Commission Act in 2007.

“We have seen that by the composition of the board, which cut across some of the most important institutions of government is an indication that as a country we are getting close to a point where we will have a seamless and relevant identity management system that will not only aid planning for better economic development but for more strategic development of resources in terms of allocation of resources and manage security situation in the country,” Tietie said.

He assured that the organisation is collaborating with the commission to achieve its objectives for national development.
