The National Identity Management Commission says the renewal of National Identity Card will cost N5,000, payable through Remita.
This was disclosed on NIMC’s Twitter handle (@nimc_ng) monitored by the News Agency of Nigeria in Abuja on Monday, and confirmed by a staff of the Corporate Department of the commission.
NIMC also said applicants who wish to renew their card can visit any NIMC office with the required documents to obtain their card.
It tweeted: “The requirements include a written application with attached proof of payment receipt made through remita, bank teller, NIN slip and submit it at our office.
“Card renewal costs N5,000 payable through remita.”
The tweet also explained that the main focus of the commission was to ensure that all Nigerians are enrolled.
It said: “Our main focus is ensuring that all Nigerians are enrolled and issued their NIN and Your NIN is the most important token of your enrollment.”
According to the commission, Nigerians can authenticate their National Identity Number through NIMC verification portal.
“Your NIN can be authenticated through our verfification portal without your card,” NIMC tweeted.
“You will be issued your cards when funds permit. Please bear with us and Your NIN is generated immediately for you upon successful completion of your enrolment.”
