NIMC: Mobile App Not Yet Aprroved For Public Consumption

The National Identity Management Commission says the NIMC Mobile App is not yet ready for public use.

NIMC says in a statement signed by Kayode Adegoke, Head, Corporate Communications, that the App is still in the test environment and currently being fine-tuned to give users the best experience with adequate privacy and data security safeguards.

“Our attention has been drawn to several complaints about the NIMC Mobile App. We will like Nigerians to be aware that the App is a novel innovation by the Commission, but it is yet to be officially approved for public consumption,” says Adegoke.

According to him, “once the test stage is concluded, the Commission will issue a formal statement regarding its usage by our esteemed NIN registered persons.”

“In the same vein, we want to assure Nigerians of the security of their data. Our systems are configured to ensure the utmost protection of the data,” he adds

Adegoke thus advised Members of the general public to disregard commentaries and information from unauthorized sources about the App and other activities of the Commission.

He says the official communication platforms of the Commission are the only authorized sources of information pertaining to all its activities – press releases; media parley; website and official social media handles.
