REFORMS of The National Identity Management in progress.

Problem: The lack of a robust and credible national identity management system. Many previous efforts failed as a result of corruption.

Reform Actions: Establishment of the National Identity Management Commission in 2007.

Main Achievements: Although this is still a work in progress, the securing of ISO 27001 certification for information security management system is a major achievement. The same goes for the creation of a Central Identity Repository and the introduction of the National Identification Number (NIN).

Key Challenges: (a) delays in issuing national identity smartcards to people who have registered; (b) public cynicism; and (c) apathy on the part of citizens and consequent poor turnout.
