Nigerian govt to end multiple ID registrations, plans central data hub

The Federal Government has said that multiple identity registrations will soon end in the country, as it is set to invest in the harmonisation of the country’s data through the National Identity Management Commission (NIMC).

The Minister of Interior, Olubunmi Tunji-Ojo stated this while receiving the MTN Nigeria management team led by the Chief Executive Officer, Karl Toriola, in Abuja on Monday.

According to Tunji-Ojo, there was a need for the country to have a tech-driven data hub under the ministry.
