President Muhammadu Buhari has on Tuesday 25th August 2015 enrolled for his National Identification Number at the NIN enrolment centre in the Aso Rock Villa. 


Speaking with state house correspondents after he was issued his NIN, President Buhari said the exercise would confirm the country’s population, especially that of citizens aged 18 years and above who are eligible to vote during elections.
The president said: “I think this exercise is very important as it will confirm our population and those, who are entitled to vote – that is those, who are 18 years and above. It will complement the exercise of the Permanent Voters Card.

“So, for those who want their votes to count from whichever party or constituency, they should ensure that they and their families are properly captured, like I have been captured.”

DG/CEO NIMC, Chris Onyemenam, who was on hand to see Mr President through with the process, also spoke to newsmen after the enrolment.
According to Barr. Onyemenam "every enrollment centre that we have established remains open forever; they are like branches of banks. We are taking deliberate steps to ensure that enrollment centres are opened in each local government".
