No NIN, Residents Card, No Govt Services – Kaduna



Telecoms Services Restored In Kaduna

The KADUNA State Government has warned that from May 1, any person who does not have the Kaduna Residents Card or the National Identification Number (NIN) will not be offered services by state agencies.

The Executive Secretary of the Kaduna State Residents Registration Agency, KADSRRA, Dr. Zayyad Tsiga, made this known, yesterday. Tsiga said: “Kaduna State has the second-highest number of enrolments into the National Identity Database, NIDB, with 3,130,857 enrolments against the projected population of 9,476,055 million people giving us coverage of about 33 per cent as at February 15, 2021.

“This new policy is being implemented with a view to further improving service delivery at all MDAs, the state’s digital economy and e-governance initiatives, social and financial inclusion, and much more, to the benefits of our dearest residents.”

To achieve 100 per cent enrolment of Kaduna State residents into the national database in the nearest future, Dr. Tsiga said that there would be additional enrolment centres in all the 255 wards in the state.

The executive secretary added that the model Primary Health Care Centres would be used for the exercise in addition to the current 73 enrolment centres across the state.

He added: “The state, through its Residents Registration Agency, KADSRRA, plans to begin the distribution of the State Residents Card in the first quarter of this year. The card seeks to eliminate the need for multiple ID cards across various use cases in the state. Some key examples of such cards include hospital, university, and employee ID cards.”

Tsiga noted that only residents “who have an NIN, with a valid Kaduna State residential address, will be issued a State Residents Card”, adding: “This is to ensure that the data of our residents is only collected once.

“Residents who have obtained their NIN using an address of another state, and now reside in Kaduna, are required to visit any enrolment centre to update their NIN with their current Kaduna address in order to get a State Residents Card.”

He recalled that KADSRRA has been “working closely with the National Identity Management Commission, NIMC, since this administration came into office in 2015.”

He added that the working relationship was “to foster the orderly development of an identity sector in order to build a modern identity management system for Nigeria, while specifically expediting enrolment of Kaduna State Residents into the National Identity Database, NIDB.”
