Dr Isa Pantami, the Minister of Communications and Digital Economy disclosed that as of December 10, 2021, over 70 million unique National Identity Number (NIN) enrolments have been recorded.
Pantami said this in his speech at the fifth-generation spectrum auction in Abuja on Monday.
According to the minister, the number of enrolments recorded moved from 40 million in September 2020 to over 70 million as of December 10, 2021, showing an increase of over 30 million in slightly over a year period.
“You will recall that we had just over 40 million enrolments in September 2020. The additional enrolments, which are close to 30 million enrolments in a little over a year, constitute a truly great feat to the extent that other countries now want to learn from us.”
