COVID: World Bank provides NIMC with £172m PPEThe World Bank has supported the National Identity Management Commission with protective equipment against Covid-19 worth £172m, to assist the agency to carry out enrolments for National Identification Numbers across the country.

This is coming after NIMC offices witnessed a turnout of large crowds, especially in Lagos and Abuja in a bid to get their NINs, while the website of the commission crashed due to huge volume of traffic.

The Director-General of NIMC, Aliyu Aziz, disclosed that the crowds were difficult to control, admitting that massive traffic on the commission’s website led to its crash recently, but noted that it is being resolved.

The NIMC boss pointed out that the World Bank had to provide some support to the commission’s work with protective equipment to prevent the spread of the Covid-19 disease through the massive crowds showing up at NIMC offices.
