Some staff of the National Identity Management Commission, NIMC, have been discovered to be allegedly selling forms for NIN registration in Makurdi, Benue State.

DAILY POST investigation reveals that the forms are sold to applicants at the rate of N500 each at the NIMC head office on Jonah Jang Crescent, Makurdi, Benue State.

Our correspondent observed that copies of the forms applicants are compelled to purchase are stamped with the signature of a NIMC staff while the one without those appendages are rejected.

A resident, Ahijo Ahire whose son was asked to obtain the form at the rate of N500 despite having the one given to him earlier corroborated our correspondent’s observation.

Trying to further confirm this allegation, our correspondent purchased the form for N500 from a NIMC staff who would not identify himself.

Applicants are made to queue up in front of one of the offices where they are ushered in to pay the money for the NIN form.

Speaking with our correspondent, Ahire said: “My name is Ahijo Ahire, there are many people at the NIMC office in Makurdi waiting to buy the form and collect their printout.

“It’s true people are paying money to get the forms. I brought my son here with a form gotten free from this NIMC office sometime ago and when he submitted it, they refused to accept the form. I then approached one of their staff who refused to disclose his identity. He told me that though the form was from them, it was not stamped, and that the date and numbering on the form was not there. He said without those three things, your form can’t be collected.
