The World Bank has affirmed the satisfactory performance of the Nigeria Identity for National Development (ID4D) initiative, emphasizing the strides made by the Nigeria Identity Management Commission (NIMC).

Within the framework of this initiative, NIMC aims to allocate the National Identification Number (NIN) to 148 million Nigerian citizens by June 2024.

Data disclosed by the Commission as of December 2023 indicated that 104.16 million Nigerians had received their NIN, constituting 70% of the projected target. In its most recent implementation report published on March 29, 2024, the World Bank acknowledged NIMC’s commendable progress.

The World Bank in its latest implementation report said “NIMC is making satisfactory progress”.

“Updates include the reduction of the enrolment fields to 10 minimal fields, and the introduction of a two-factor authentication for enrolment officers amongst other features of the upgrade are completed.”

“In addition to shortening the enrollment time, the project has established relationships with humanitarian and civil societies to ensure the inclusive capture of women.”

“Enrollment numbers reached ~45 million from ~15 million at the onset of the project, which is 59.4% of the targeted female enrollment.”

“Features of the completed upgrade include a child enrolment use case and school-based enrolment campaigns, which were tested during the test phase enrolments.”

“The total child enrollment reached 16 million from almost nothing at the onset of the project, which is 31.1% of the targeted child enrolment,” the project report stated.
