According to VOICE OF NIGERIA, this was stated while giving assurance of the commitment of NIMC towards ensuring that Nigerians get the National Identification Number (NIN).
According to the NIS, its inability to meet up with the six weeks target for issuance of fresh passports and the three weeks target for re-issuance was due to the challenges created by the NIMC in providing NINs.
