BREAKING: Senate seeks review of NIN policy as requirement for JAMB registration
The Senate, on Tuesday, urged the Federal Ministry of Education, Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) and the National Identity Management Commission (NIMC) to review the implementation of its policy making the National Identification Number (NIN) a mandatory requirement for JAMB registration.
The Senate also called for the extension of the JAMB registration deadline until there is a seamless and well organised process for obtaining the NIN.
The Senate further urged the Federal Ministry of Education and NIMC to introduce and streamline a simple and decentralised NIN registration process where students would be able to obtain their NIN in their various accredited school premises.
These resolutions of the upper chamber followed a motion on the floor by Senator Ifeanyi Ubah, at plenary.
