The National Identity Management Commission (NIMC) has officially introduced a booking system for the registration of the National Identification Number (NIN).
The new development was made known via a press statement by the Federal Ministry of Communication and Digital Economy (FMCDE).
According to the statement, the recent enforcement of the SIM-NIN linking exercise has occasioned a huge demand of NIN.
As such, there has been a large crowd visiting the NIMC enrolment centers every day.
While the second wave of COVID-19 is still on rampage, the Federal Government wants to curtail the spread that could be caused by overcrowded spaces.
As a result of the above, NIMC in its statement will now attend to applicants based on a new booking system.
Effective December 30, 2020, the booking system would require applicants to visit any of the NIMC enrolment offices closest to them to book an appointment.

This exercise according to the statement will only run between 9am to 1pm every day.
Once admitted, a number-issuing queue management will be in place to ensure strict orderliness.
More so, the new development will also ensure strict adherence to COVID-19 protocols put in place to curb the spread of the virus.
The booking system isn’t entirely new
While NIMC is only making the booking system official now, it has been adopted since February 4, 2020.
However, due to the short time frame slated for the SIM-NIN enrolment; the crowds at the various NIMC offices have rather been overwhelming.
Hence the need to officially slam the booking system to further regulate the attendance of many Nigerians rushing to complete the mandatory exercise.
