Voice of Awori reports that people in Ota axis have been facing difficulties in the enrollment of their National Identity Number since the registration began in the town.

Consistently at the local government, long queues were obviously seen waiting to be registered with NIMC at the early hour of the morning till late in the evening. VOA News correspondent gathered.

While giving the reason for the challenges the community has been facing, one of the NIMC officials said, “we previously have over five centres for registration. Most of these centres have been closed down due to lack of adequate equipment and space. We only have three centres left, meanwhile this one at the local government is the proficient one. We don’t have adequate resources to meet the demand of applicants, which is the major cause of registration delay.”

In an interview with VOA News correspondent, the Hon. representing Ado-Odo Ota 1 Constituency who is also Majority Leader (ML) in the Ogun State National Assembly, Hon. Sheriff Yusuf said, “we have heard the cry of the people of this community especially the youths, concerning the difficulties being faced at the course of NIN registration.

While speaking with VOA News Correspondent, one of the applicants, Mrs Mary Monu lamented, “I have been on this registration for over some weeks now, my bank pushed me into it because of BVN. Meanwhile since have been coming, the story has been the same, ‘come back tomorrow’. Today I have been here since morning still what they said was that there is no fuel. I am tired of all this, we are not encouraged towards this registration at all.”

Another applicant, Oluwoye Kehinde said, “the issue we have been facing here is a big one. If not because I need the NIN for my JAMB registration, I wouldn’t have bothered. This morning so many of us were waited at the gate to be registered, but there was no one to attend to us.”
