Director, National Orientation Agency (NOA) in Anambra,  Charles Nwoji, has called on ndi Anambra to endeavour to register to acquire their National Identification Numbers (NIN).       

Mr Nwoji said that all local government council headquarters had a National Identity Management Corporation (NIMC) office, where anyone could register to obtain the document.

He said that the only requirement in ascertaining ones’ state of origin could be through driving license, international passport, letter of identification from presidents-general and voter’s card.

Nwoji emphasised that the registration was not new but only re-launched to create more awareness on the need for every citizen to get his or her data captured in the National Identity Management System (NIMS).

The National Orientation Agency boss enjoined Anambra residents to take the registration exercise seriously, saying that Anambra State is placed first in the South East as a state with the highest number of registered citizens.

Nwoji cautioned against last minute `rush mentality’ among the people, urging those yet to register to do so urgently.

“Our message is to ensure that people change from bad habits to good habits.

“NIMS is still coming up. The re-training of the staff has started. Don’t wait until you hear that registration is about closing before everybody crowds at the registration centres.

“Just like in the case of PVCs, people were reluctant to go and register until the dying minute. There is no way the crowd there will all be registered,’’ Nwoji said..
