Realty Point Limited, one of the foremost real estate companies in Nigeria in collaboration with National Identity Management Commission (NIMC) registers over 150 participants on Thursday 14th of November 2019 and Friday 15th of November 2019 as part of their corporate social responsibility.
The National Identification Number (NIN) is a set of numbers assigned to an individual upon successful enrollment. Enrollment consists of recording an individual’s demographic data and capture of the ten (10) fingerprints, head-to-shoulder facial picture and digital signature, which are all used to cross-check existing data in the National Identity Database to confirm that there is no previous entry of the same data.
Once this (de-duplication) process is completed the data is then stored with a unique NIN that was assigned to it. The NIN once issued to a person cannot be used again, (that is, it cannot be issued to another person even if the previous person is dead). It is the NIN that helps to tie all records about a person in the database and is used to check the identity verified.
The NIN number can also be used for all transactions in Nigeria requiring identity verification like your National e-ID card, international passport, personal bank account, driver’s license, permanent Voters’ Card, National Health Insurance Scheme, payment of your taxes, transactions related to your contributory pension scheme, access to welfare and other relevant services from the Nigerian Government, transactions with social security implications, land transactions subject to the Land Use Act or any other transactions NIMC may so prescribe and list in the Federal Government Gazette.
The participants lauded Realty Point limited for their effort and the opportunity to partake in the registration.
