    The National Identity Management Commission (NIMC) has indicated its readiness to collaborate with the University of Ilorin (UNILORIN) in the area of data-capture software development to reduce government’s yearly spending on data-capture management abroad.

    The Director of Research at NIMC, Engr. Emmanuel Ogungbe, gave this indication last week when he led a three-man team from the Commission to the university to explore areas of possible collaboration between the two institutions.

    Briefing the Vice-Chancellor of Unilorin, Prof. AbdulGaniyu Ambali on the NIMC team’s mission to the school, Engr. Ogungbe explained that the commission was seeking local solution to the high maintenance fee of the Automated Biometric Identification System (ABIS).

    He lamented that most of the technologies that support the National Identity management project are foreign-based.

    The NIMC Director stressed that only a proper national identity management could restore the international integrity of Nigeria, as he observed that most countries around the world do not respect Nigeria’s identity documents.

    In his remarks, the Vice-Chancellor noted that it was a welcome development to have NIMC partner the University.

    He assured the Commission that the University would strive to offer the technical assistance needed, describing the partnership as a national assignment.
