The National Identity Management Commission has reaffirmed its commitment to ensure the enrollment of all Nigerians as part of its statutory responsibilities.
The Director-General of the Commission, Mr Aliyu Aziz, gave the assurance when he featured on the News Agency of Nigeria forum on Sunday in Abuja.
He said that the enrollment was a gradual process, adding that if Nigerians would be patient enough, the enrollment would get to every person.
He said that identifying if there are problems in the enrollment would be difficult to ascertain now until the processes had been completely concluded.
“As a commission, we are committed to seeing that we carry out our responsibilities to every citizen of this country.
“Though we may have some hitches but since it is a continuous process, we hope to resolve every challenge associated with our operations.
“Much has been done which is why we have a continuous process and also our population grows by 7 million every year which will have to take a gradual step.
“Until when we open up to the private sector and also to the public sector then we can earmark something like three years and see if we have captured like 150 or 180 million.”
