The World Bank donated Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) against COVID-19 worth £172m to National Identity Management Commission (NIMC) to support the agency in its brief to enrol citizens for National Identification Numbers (NIN) across the country.

The donation comes after the NIMC offices witnessed a turnout of large crowds, especially in Lagos and Abuja, in a bid to get their NINs, while the website of the commission crashed due to the huge volume of traffic.

NIMC Director-General Aliyu Aziz said that the crowds were difficult to control, admitting that massive traffic on the commission’s website led to its crash recently.

Mr Aziz said that that the World Bank had to provide some support to the commission’s work with protective equipment to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 disease through the massive crowds showing up at NIMC offices.
