“Why the NIMC website was down”



Many Nigerians have been wondering why the National Identity Management Commission (NIMC) website went down, amidst NIN enrolment.

The Director-General of the NIMC Aliyu Aziz, has now explained why the commission’s website went down on Monday December 21.

Aziz told Premium Times that they were not prepared to have huge traffic on its website. He said;

“We have not planned for this kind of upsurge, this will also task how much the agency has.

“Among all the data agencies, we are the least in terms of budget, the least in terms of salary structure and we use experts to manage our system and the private sector comes to take them after a while and pay them better.

“I can say it got to its elasticity level, so it needs to be expanded. You know when you are the limelight, fraudsters will want to exasperate your efforts.

“Right now, when you go to the gates of the centres you will see fraudsters that will offer help to people. All these are not under our control.”

He added that the commission doesn’t have enough capacity to handle the number of persons trying to enroll within the period. He said;

“We are aware that our website is down, but it is not our making, but so many people coming (to the website).”

“We have never said we have the capacity to enrol people within a short period of time. This is because of the standard; a centre is just for 50,000 persons, so minimum we need 4,000 centres for 200 million people.”
