NCC Release Teleco’s Biometric Data to NIMC

Efforts by the Federal Government to harmonise biometric data captured by different agencies in the country have received a major boost, as Professor Umar Danbatta, the Executive Vice Chairman of the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC), has agreed to release the Commission’s data from the ongoing Subscriber Identity Module (SIM) cards registration exercise to the National Identity Management Commission (NIMC).

Danbatta who made this known in Abuja while receiving Engr. Aliyu  Aziz, the Director General of NIMC,  who paid him a courtesy visit, said the decision to release the data was in line with similar Federal Government’s instruction to transfer validated data to the sister agency.

The data transfer from NCC will improve the ongoing National Identification Number (NIN) exercise of the commission, and would make use of the the NCC’s data to assign NIM to Nigerians who were captured in the validated data received.
