Report Unwholesome Practices By Our Staff -DG NIMC Challenges Nigerians

The Director General, National Identity Management Commission, (NIMC), Engr. Aliyu Aziz on Wednesday called on Nigerians to report any unwholesome practice by its staff to the agency. He said the enrollment for National Identification Number (NIN), is for free and no Nigeria should pay anything for it.

Engr. Aliyu Aziz stated that the NIMC is a responsible and responsive Commission that pursues the highest ethical standard in the discharge of its functions. ”The Commission, recently, suspended some staff and terminated the appointment of a few others who engaged in acts of extortion and unwholesome practices detrimental to its values’ he said.

Aziz said, “It would be recalled that in 2020, the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC) adjudged NIMC the third-best Federal Government Agency for its fight against corrupt practices. The award underscores NIMC’s concerted and deliberate efforts at stemming the tide of corruption. 

The NIMC has instituted effective systems and supervisory checks to counter actions that stand at variance with the Commissions’ corporate ethical standards. The Commission also calls on the general public to desist from being enablers of extortion as it would not condone any act capable of destroying its hard-earned integrity. 

“The NIMC, therefore, urges the general public to report any form of extortion and unwholesome practices through its official platforms by calling 08157691214; 09134959433; send e-mail to actu@nimc.gov.ng; or lodge complaints via its website- www.nimc.gov.ng. “

He said, “National Identity Management Commission (NIMC) wishes to reiterate its zero tolerance to corruption, fraudulent activities, and extortion in the process of enrolment and other activities.”

And that Nigerians should remember, that enrolment for the National Identification Number (NIN) is free!
