According to reports sourced from the Vanguardnews Nigeria, The Kano State Commissioner for Education, Muhammad Sanusi Saidu-kiru announced in a statement issued by the Public Relations Officer, Mr Aliyu Yusuf, that all students in Public Secondary Schools in Kano State must register and obtain the National Identification Number (NIN) before they can be registered for any examination.
According to him, the forms will be distributed to all secondary school students (JSS 1 to SS 2) to provide their personal details, which will be used by the NIMC (National Identity Management Commission) and the ministry for the purpose of documentation, budgetary planning and lots more.
Below are his reasons for the new directive:
1• To enable the ministry establish an updated data base for all secondary school students in the state.
2• For the purposes of record keeping and budgetary planning.
3• To extarminate the manipulations of students record during examinations.
4• To annihilate chances for malpractices among students (impersonation).
5• To ensure that government funds projected for the provision of qualitative education in the state is done sagasiously.
