The federal government has ordered National Identity Management Commission (NIMC) to stop enrolment for National Identity Number in its Abuja headquarter, opening other 20 centers for people to enrol within the Federal Capital Territory from January 18. 

The ongoing NIN registration mandated by the government has forced citizens to crowd NIMC offices across the country in recent weeks amidst second wave of coronavirus pandemic. 

NIMC spokesperson Kayode Adegoke in a statement urged members of the public to enroll for their NIN in any of the 20 centers to be opened on January 18 across the FCT. 

The 20 centers include:
