    What method do they use in the production of the ID Cards? is it batch or random, because those of us who registered since 2013 are yet to get ours and those who registered most recently are getting theirs. I want to know the method adopted so as to put my mind to rest or is there anything wrong somewhere?

    1. Mustapha Danjuma Muhammad

      Same with mine wooh, since 2013,but others who enroll last year got theirs. I wonder how.

    1. You can apply for another one

      1. Charles

        So can I apply for another one if the previous application is taking too long? Say 3yrs?

  3. Adebisi Samuel

    What I have as my tracking number ended with five digit and a letter iam unable to get a result

  4. Mustapha Danjuma Muhammad

    This NIMC of a thing it seems not reliable, it’s been three years that I’d enroll in the registration, but mine is not ready up till now. I checked, called but no sign of it at all.


    It is quite unfortunate that after four years of registering for my National ID as citizen of this country i cannot yet recieve it up to this moment.Is it when i die that i will use it? four years is quite a long time. PLEASE MORE POWER TO YOUR ELBOW.
    I expect your swift response in this regard.
