Minister of State for Health, Dr. Olorunnimbe Mamora, has said the ongoing National Identification Number enrolment may be suspended due to the risk of high rate COVID-19 infections
The minister said this Monday while featuring on Channels Television’s Sunrise Daily programme monitored by NewsWireNGR
The minister said, “I don’t feel good looking at the picture where people are gathered in multitude; it’s like a superspreader event which we don’t like. But I’m also aware that the relevant ministry which is the communications and digital economy is looking at this.
“My understanding is that the whole process may be suspended so as to reorder the whole process in terms of management of the crowd because it was never intended that it would become a rowdy process like that.”
The minister asked the National Identity Management Commission to go back to the drawing board and re-order the enrolment process to avoid large crowds at its centres nationwide.
Mamora also said the government has a duty to ensure Nigerians are protected at all times. “We have a duty as government to ensure that people are protected; we also have a duty to ensure people comply within the limit of what is good for the society at large.” he further stated.
