Calabar Residents: We Will Rather Have Our Lines blocked, Than Paying 2000 Naira For NIN Enrollment

Residents in the Calabar, the capital city of Cross River State have lamented the challenges they are going through at the National Identification Number (NIN) enrolment centres. So many persons waiting to be enrolled by very few enrolment officers.

Despite the importance of the National Identification Number, the crowd have been left unattended to by the enrolment officers while those who can pay two thousand naira are attended to. 

Speaking with our correspondence at the Etta Agbor enrolment centre, Antony Ita complained; “The stress here is just the crowd. The crowd is too much and moreover you need to pay two thousand naira (#2000) before they collect your form. For me I think it is bad because the enrollment should be free”

Other citizens have expressed displeasure at the way people are treated at the enrollment centres, no chairs for people to sit and no canopies to shelter them from the sun amidst the fact that citizens still have to pay for an enrollment which they belief is meant to be free.

Business owners who closed their shops in order to get enrolled have also condemn the attitudes of the enrollment officers towards citizens who should be attended to allow to go back to their business, stating that the receiving of money before enrollment of individuals is nothing but extortion.

Our correspondence also gathered that some citizens have decided that they Residents Pay #2000 For NIN Enrollment In Calabar
