The National Identity Management Commission has assured Nigerians that its database is secure and that no NIN records have been lost.
This is stated in a statement signed by Kayode Adegoke, the NIMC’s Head of Corporate Communications, in Abuja.
In response to a report that NIMC lost 7.9 million NIN records of Nigerians, the commission stated that the report was deceptive and misleading.
“Management of NIMC assures Nigerians that the database remains intact and impenetrable and that no NIN records are missing.”
“The NIN is an 11-digit unique number.”
” We therefore urge Nigerians to ignore the said report, which is the product of the writer’s infantile imagination,” it stated.
