No National Identification Number, No Nigerian Passport By 2018

From January 1, 2018, anybody without National Identification Number issued by the National Identity Management Commission will not be able to procure Nigerian passport. The condition applies to both first-time applicants and those renewing their expired document.
The Comptroller-General of the Nigeria Immigration Service, Mr. Mohammed Babandede, disclosed this to State House correspondents after a meeting of database harmonisation committee held inside the Presidential Villa, Abuja on Tuesday. 

Babandede said the decision was taken as part of the Federal Government’s efforts to ease the process of doing business in the country. He said henceforth, there would be no need for individuals to have their biometrics captured by the NIS and NIMC separately. He said, “The harmonisation of data and requires all of us to act but the biggest problem we are facing is that everybody is deploying his own technology. GUYS, WHAT DO YOU THINK?

@Godwin: well, since it's not our fault that most of us don't have the permenant National ID, the Immigration service have no choice than to accept the temporary ID card when presented for passport processing
