NIN will reveal the identify of any Nigerian on the internet-Isa Pantami

Minister of Communications and Digital Economy Isa Pantami has expressed his goals for the National Identification Number (NIN).

He said NIN will ensure that the identification of citizens and legal residents who log onto the internet is known during the Nigeria International Partnership Forum in Paris, which is aimed to improve ties between Nigeria and France in the aftermath of the COVID-19 pandemic.

        “The adoption of the national identity number is one of these measures that happens to be the foundation of even our economy.”Nigeria has joined the global world by requiring citizens and legal residents to use national identity numbers,” he added. “This will be the backbone of our economy as well as our security,” he said, adding that “whoever goes online, his identity will be recognized by the federal government as well as our security institution.”

           “As stated in our constitution, section 14(2)(b), the primary responsibility of government is to ensure the security and safety of its citizens, it is for this reason that President Muhammadu Buhari is very passionate about it, and he has been pushing that we establish the foundation of our economy and the foundation of our security on the national identification number, so that the identity of our citizens and legal residents can be known,” he said.

            “Today, we have over 67 million people enrolled, and most significantly, we are able to capture the most critical group of people who come out to transact business.”

“As a result, it becomes a requirement for using government services,” he said. “I believe this will give potential investors more peace of mind to know that the government has been doing something significant in that regard.”

“Recently, the country launched and commissioned a national center for artificial intelligence and robotics that focuses more on research and developing innovative solutions in the area of security, and now the center, in collaboration with security institutions, is in the process of developing robots and many more that will be deployed to keep our country safe and sound.”
