NIMC To Set Up Integrate BVN And National ID Card Management Data Bases

The National Identification Management Commission, NIMC says all is now set for the kick off of the integration of the Bank Verification Number data base with the national identity card management system data base.

Speaking with newsmen in Abuja, the DG of the Commission, Chris Onyemenam noted that the development was the outcome of several months of efforts at ensuring that the presidential directives to expeditiously conclude the harmonization of the biometric link data bases in MDA's so that Government could optimize it's scarce resources to streamline activities in identity management across board.

The DG also noted that the commission is collaborating with the national pension commission, national population commission, INEC, Federal road safety, federal inland revenue service, and the national health insurance scheme.

He said that a hamonisation committee had already been set up to facilitate the integration process.

“NIMC is about to commence integration of BVN database to its own.

“This is in line with the presidential directive that various databases in the country should harmonised so that the country can operate a single database.

“This will make it more convenient to manage and update our data on a regular basis,’’ Onyenam said.

He said that NIMC had also commenced the process of integrating data of other relevant government agencies.

“We have also initiated moves to integrate agencies like the Federal Road Safety Corps, National Communication Commission, National Pension Commission and the Nigerian Police,’’ Onyenam said.

He said that NIMC would obtain the BVN data from the banks and process them through the NIMC system to eradicate duplication before issuing the National Identification Number (NIN) to the successful enrollees.

He assured Nigerians that the system would greatly enhance the work of security agencies and also provide government with the needed infrastructure for planning.

Similarly, Mr Ade Sonubi, the Managing Director of Nigeria Inter-Bank Settlement System, a partner in the process expressed satisfaction at the planned data integration.

“It is good that the BVN is the first to integrate with NIMC, it means that we can enhance each other and we can start working with standards,’’ he said.
