Following the deterioration of the security system, the Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Isa Pantami pleaded with security agencies to use the databases of the National Identity Management Commission (NIMC). ) and that of the subscriber identification module (SIM) to track down criminals. .
The Minister was speaking at the 4th National Identity Day celebration in Abuja on Friday with the theme “Traditional Institutions as Critical Actors for Citizen Mobilization”.
Pantami said that according to available information, security institutions do not make significant use of the two databases.
“From the information that I have, from the CEOs of these two institutions, the use has been very insignificant. It is for this reason that we are advocating that if they can take advantage of this, we have no doubt that ‘they will be able to address the significant security challenges we face.
According to him “We have sanitized our database and we implore our security institutions to use this database; it’s not our job to do security work to do security work, our job is to support them. Both databases are available for NIN and for SIM.
He added that “if we have a comprehensive database in Nigeria with all the challenges we have in education, health security and many more will be solved. We also have a national population commission that works hand in hand with the NIMC.
“In most developed countries that you know or have heard of. You can’t go there and live or work without a social security number. So why is it difficult for us in Nigeria? We always admire when we visit places but it is difficult for us to make adjustments to be that responsible society that we admire from afar. We can’t be there until we make sacrifices. He pointed out
In his remarks, NIMC Director General Aliyu Aziz said that NIMC partners with traditional leaders and traditional institutions across the country to raise awareness of the need for registration and use of NIN, d where the theme titled “Traditional Institutions – Critical Stakeholders for Citizen Mobilization”,
“We want to use this opportunity and this platform to appeal to the active participation of traditional institutions to mobilize support for government programs and, in this case, the national identification project.
ID is a tool for empowerment and greater use of digital ID can help bring much-needed governance and coordination in development and service delivery,” he noted.
Furthermore, he said, “the more the government knows the exact number of its population and the right demographic data, the better it is placed to plan well the infrastructure, social protection and economic development of the country.
“So this underscores the importance of identity and ties directly to the significance of today’s commemoration of Nigerian National Identity Day.
