 The National Identity Management Commission on Wednesday declared that it was currently registering about 500,000 people every month for National Identification Numbers.

It also disclosed that 42 million Nigerians now have unique identity numbers.

The disclosure came as the commission announced that it had shifted focus for NIN registration to rural areas and Internally Displaced Persons camps.

The Director-General, NIMC, Abubakar Aziz, disclosed this to journalists at the second edition of the annual event marking the observance and celebration of 16th September as National Identity Day.

Aziz also stated that free registration for NIN would end in five years, adding that currently about 42 million Nigerians had unique identifications.
