NIMC says ongoing revalidation of Front End Partners won’t affect National ID scheme

The National Identity Management Commission (NIMC) on Wednesday in Abuja, confirmed an ongoing revalidation of its Front End Partners (FEPs) with a view to renewing their licences.
Acting Director-General of the commission, Mrs Abisoye Coker-Odusote while confirming the exercise, said all enrollment activities at the FEP centres were indeed temporarily put on hold until the conclusion of the process.
She explained that the move was part of NIMC’s commitment to driving operational efficiency and ensuring compliance with the highest standards of data security amongst the FEPs.
“The exercise will also ensure seamless NIN enrolment and provision of modification services whilst it eliminates infractions.
“The commission however wishes to apologise for any inconvenience encountered at all FEP centres in the process of NIN enrolment during the revalidation exercise.
“To ensure that this exercise does not affect the general public, NIN enrolment, data modifications, and other NIMC-offered services.
“Are ongoing at all NIMC centres in the Local Government and State offices nationwide whilst we are working on a contactless solution for Nigerains in the Diaspora,” she said.
While soliciting support from the public, the commission’s Ag DG said the exercise would be concluded in the shortest possible time as all necessary resources had been deployed to ensure its quick conclusion.
Coker-Odusote added that the exercise would also provide an insight into the level of indebtedness inherited from the commission’s  past management.
“it is actually the first step towards clearing the backlog of payments due to the FEPs.
“A list of all the Local Government Areas and state office centres and their locations where NIN enrollment is ongoing is available on the NIMC website,,”she said.(
