NIN registration will engender digital economy and help curb crime — Minister or Communications and Digital Economy, Dr. Isa Pantami

The Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Dr. Isa Pantami, says the National Identity Number (NIN) registration would help to curb crime and achieve a digital economy. 

The Minister who spoke at the Global Privacy Day Celebration, 2021, said the value of the registration exercise would become appreciated with the ease at which e-government services would be delivered, the reduction in crime, and general efficiency guaranteed by the database.

According to the Minister, “Identifying every Nigeria is a soft infrastructure needed to achieve our digital economy objective. Indeed, the needed pieces for the digital economy is falling in place and we are committed to laying a solid and lasting foundation for a digital Nigeria.

I am more delighted to see that NITDA, in collaboration with public and private stakeholders has infused a lot of innovation to the organization of this year’s Privacy Week despite the challenges posed by the pandemic.

The Digital Economy is developing at a remarkable rate and it has been widely accepted as the single most important driver of Innovation, Competitiveness and Growth.

The digital economy is fundamentally transforming the way societies, businesses including the business of governance operate and deliver services.”
