The ongoing National Identity Number (NIN) registration appears to be running into more troubled waters, as Nigerians who have turned up for the exercise have been left unattended at various registration centres.

 

NEWS FLAKES NG reports that this is because workers at the National Identity Management Commission (NIMC) have embarked on strike across the country.

 

Some of the agency’s offices monitored by Channels Television on Thursday included Lagos, Abuja, Bauchi, and Taraba, among other states.

At the NIMC office located on the premises of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) office in Alausa, Lagos, hundreds of residents were seen as early as 8am.

 

However, the workers there refused to attend to the applicants, saying they were on strike to demand better welfare packages from the Federal Government.

 

One of the workers told Channels Television that the recent increase in the number of visitors at their office for registration of NIN had caused a lot of stress for them.

Apart from the demand for allowance, he said the government does not care about their safety as saying they could get infected with COVID-19 as they attend to hundreds of residents daily without protective kits.

 

NEWS FLAKES NG gathered that in the nation’s capital, Abuja, the staff also complained about inadequate work equipment to protect them from Covid-19 and poor salary structure, among others.

 

They claimed that some of their members have contracted the disease and were neglected by the management of the agency.
