The National Identity Management Commission (NIMC) has revealed that the National Identification Number (NIN) holders will pay N15,000 to correct their dates of birth in the commission’s database.
NIMC Regional Coordinator, Funmi Opesanwo, made this disclosure on Wednesday at the commission’s office in the Alausa area of Lagos State.
She stated that NIN holders are also required to pay a processing fee of N5,000 for card renewal or card replacement as well as an address modification fee of N500.
She said, “For the date of birth correction, there is a processing fee of N15,000.
“For card renewal or card replacement, there is a processing fee of N5,000.
“For the modification of address or name, it is N500.
“So, people misconstrue this to mean that in NIMC they are asking them to pay money. No, those are for services.”
The NIMC official noted that the fees are payable to the Treasury Single Account of the Federal Government.
She noted, “For correction of date of birth, it is N15,000 and it is payable to the TSA.”
The NIMC Regional Coordinator, Funmi Opesanwo stated that a large number of people are turning up for the exercise.
Opesanwo said, “When we came this morning, a lot of applicants complained that their SIM (cards) have been blocked and that is why we are experiencing this large number today.
“We are trying to manage the situation. Applicants have been seated and they came in for different services, so, there is no problem.
“We have to be mindful of the safety protocols and we cannot exceed the number of people, the capacity that we can take, we have to adhere to the guidelines.”
