The commission had stated that applicants who wish to renew their card can visit any NIMC office with the required documents to obtain their card. renewal of will cost payable through remita.
The tweet also explained that the main focus of the commission was to ensure that all Nigerians are enrolled, while Nigerians can authenticate their National Identity Number through NIMC verification portal.
