NIMC staff end strike, resume SIM card enrollment
The National Identity Management Commission NIMC has resumed the enrolment services of the National Identification Number, NIN, across the country.
Director-General of NIMC, Engr. Aliyu Aziz, urged workers of the corporation to go about their duty of enrolment.
Recall that some NIMC staff member had on Wednesday embarked on an industrial action due to poor working condition.
But, Aziz disclosed that the Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Isa Pantami intervened in the matter.
He said Pantami promised to look into the workers grievances and advised them to empathise with Nigerians especially at this time that linkage of the NIN with the Subscriber Identification Module (SIM) cards is ongoing for the security of lives and property in the country.
While thanking Nigerians for their understanding in the face of the challenges posed by the two-day hiatus in enrolment, Aziz stressed his management’s avowed pursuit of the welfare and health of all staff of the Commission across the country.
Aziz who enjoined theNIMC staff to go about their normal duties, while fully observing the COVID-19 protocols as they enroll Nigerians, also assured that more Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) would be made available to staff, in addition to those already donated by the World Bank, which had since been distributed to all NIMC offices nationwide.
