As a result, the com-mission is poised to extend its services to all local government areas.
Director General of the commission Chris Onye-menam made this known yesterday at a forum with officials of the Association of Local Governments of Nigeria (ALGON) in Abuja.
He said the commission is partnering with the association to bring its services closer to the people and a summit will be held in that regard in the six geo-political zones to acquaint local government chairmen with the identity management.
Onyemenam said the commission has a vision to establish a trusted identity management system in the country because there has to be a proper system to generate data.
He said it is the res-ponsibility of the local admi-nistration system to work with immigration offices and other security agencies as well as traditional and chieftaincy institutions in their domains to ensure the integrity of the management process.
“We have finished our work at the federal and state levels and are moving to the local government level. I am exceedingly pleased that we are moving from renting apartments in the local government areas to being a part and parcel of the local government structure,” he said.
