Nigerians will have to pay N3,000 through remita for the renewal of National Identity Card and N5,000 for replacement, the National Identity Management Commission (NIMC) has said.
Naija News reports that this was disclosed in a series of tweets by the commission on its tweeter handle (@nimc_ng) on Tuesday.
The commission noted that applicants who wish to renew their card can visit any NIMC office with the required documents to obtain their card.
“The requirements include a written application with attached proof of payment receipt made through remita, bank teller, NIN slip and submit it at our office.
“Card renewal is N3000 when your card expires and card replacement is N5000 for lost or stolen cards,“ NIMC tweeted.

NIMC explained in the tweet that the main focus of the commission was to ensure that all Nigerians are enrolled.
“Our main focus is ensuring that all Nigerians are enrolled and issued their NIN and Your NIN is the most important token of your enrollment.”

Nigerians can authenticate their National Identity Number through the NIMC verification portal, the commission said.
“Your NIN can be authenticated through our verification portal without your card,” NIMC tweeted.
“You will be issued your cards when funds permit, Please bear with us and Your NIN is generated immediately for you upon successful completion of your enrolment.”
