Nigerians Fume As NIMC Attaches N3,000 Charges To National ID Renewal

The National Identity Management Commission (NIMC) on Tuesday disclosed that the renewal of the National Identity Card will cost N3,000 and replacement of the card if lost will cost N5,000.

This was disclosed on the official Twitter handle of the agency @nimc_ng

 

NIMC also said that applicants who wish to renew their card can visit any NIMC office with the required documents to obtain their card.

This announcement did not go down well with many Nigerians who fumed, questioning why the National Identification card will need to be renewed after the acquisition.

Others mocked the decision of NIMC noting that they have yet to get the card years after applying for it, let alone have cause to renew it.
