THE PLATEAU STATE GOVERNOR, MR SIMON LALONG

The Plateau State Governor, Simon Lalong, says he has secured the licensing of Plateau State from the Federal Government of Nigeria as a service provider in enrolling for the National Identity Number (NIN) Nigerians residing in the state.

This is following the challenges faced by residents of Plateau State as a result of few enrolment centres.

The Governor’s Director of Press and Public Affairs, Macham Makut, in a statement on Sunday said the licence granted to Plateau State by the Federal Government was for one year subject to renewal upon satisfactory performance during the period.

According to him, the approval which was conveyed to the governor by the Minister of Communications and Digital Economy through the Director General of the National Identity Management Commission, Mr Aliyu Aziz, indicates that the Plateau State Government can now participate in the registration of citizens of the State into the national identity database in line with the provisions of the NIMC Act and other guidelines issued.
