Efforts of the National Identity Management Commission (NIMC) to create a Unified Identification System in Nigeria through the ongoing National Identity Number (NIN) enrollment exercise has been lauded by the European Union (EU), which has now expressed support for the project.

Ambassador Michel Arrion, new Ambassador/Head of EU Delegation to Nigeria and the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS), made this submission on Tuesday when he paid a Courtesy visit to the NIMC Headquarters in Abuja .

Arrion said that the NIN project will help bring real and recognisable benefits to Nigeria and other countries across the globe.

According to him, Identity plays a key role in the growth and development of any economy and the NIMC’s quest to create a paradigm shift from the Identity Card issuance to the National Identity Management System (NIMS) is a great potential for the country.

“I see potentials for the NIMS project; the NIMC objectives and mandate, when fully implemented will boost the nation’s economy and help drive foreign investment,” Arrion said.
