Governor Okezie Ikpeazu has commended the National Identity Management Commission for their efforts towards ensuring that all Nigerians are enrolled in the scheme and for producing a National Identity Card of the highest quality.

The Governor made this remark while receiving a delegation from the Abia State Office of the Commission to came to formally present the Governor with his National Identity Card, having enrolled some months ago.

Ikpeazu used the opportunity to call on Abians to take immediate steps to get enrolled in the scheme and get captured properly, stressing that the data captured from the exercise will play key roles in national planning.

He was particularly delighted at the quality of the card which can be used for a number of things including serving as a form of ATM card for banking transactions both at home and abroad.

The Governor expressed deep concerns that Abia State has registered less than One Million people in the scheme and charged Local Government Chairmen, Traditional Rulers, Religious Leaders, Community Leaders and others to help sensitize our people on the importance of getting registered and obtaining the card.

He further directed that registration centers be set up across the 17 Local Government Areas of the State to give our people easy access to the registration points.

Speaking earlier, the State Director of the Commission, Mr. Loveday Ogbonna informed the Governor that the Commission is fully ready to register as many Abians as possible as part of the mandate of the Commission. He thanked the Governor for the support his administration has consistently given to the Commission and expressed their readiness to expand their registration centers to all parts of the State.
