The National Identity Management Commission (NIMC) has reiterated that enrolment for the National Identification Number (NIN) is free of charge in the country

Engr Abisoye Coker-Odusote, Director General/Chief Executive Officer of NIMC, said this on Wednesday in Abuja during a 2-day roundtable with publishers of online newspapers in Nigeria.

“My administration has zero tolerance for corruption. I hereby reiterate my commitment to sanitizing NIMC, in conformity with the mandate of Mr. President.

“Let me also use this medium to remind you all that enrolment for the National Identification Number (NIN) is free of charge in Nigeria,” she said.

Coker-Odusote said the influence of the online media cannot be overstated since the internet has become the primary source of information for many people, especially the youths.

She explained that it has also become the breeding ground for misinformation and rumours which can severely impact the reputation and trust in organisations.

According to her, the focus of the roundtable was to address the dual role of online publishers as key partners in disseminating accurate information and as potential sources of misconceptions.

The DG said: “We recognize that while you have the power to amplify our successes, there is also the potential for misunderstandings that can spread rapidly.

“This roundtable aims to forge a partnership that leverages your strengths to support our mission while ensuring that any misconceptions are promptly and accurately addressed.

“It will create a platform for NIMC to explain our activities and achievements directly to you, ensuring clear communication and mutual understanding.”
