President Muhammadu Buhari on Tuesday, received his National Identification Card from the National Identity Management Commission (NIMC).

Mr. Chris Onyemenem, the Director-General of the NIMC, who made the presentation in the President’s office, blamed the delay of the distribution of the cards on those contracted to produce it.

More so, while addressing State House correspondents after the presentation, he said other agencies of government would be integrated into the national identity to avoid the duplication of identity which has posed a problem in the past.

Before the presentation of the National Identity Card to President Buhari, Mr Onyemenam and the officials of NIMC took time out to activate the electronic identity and the security around the card as well as the payment solution.

The Commission assured that Nigerians who are yet to receive their cards would be able to do so in 90 days time.

President Buhari collected his national identity card two months after the capture of his data.
