He also praised the accomplishments of all stakeholders as regards National Identification Number (NIN), adding it was highly applaudable, particularly being able to capture millions of Nigerians in less than a year. Buhari called on stakeholders in the private and public sectors to unite together before the end of his term in office, to secure a complete database for the country.

Pantami explained there was a need to use creative methods to deploy national identity trust systems, not only to deliver government services but also to build an indigenous digital economy.

The President continually proves his eagerness to provide the necessary support to relevant agencies of government to harness all identity infrastructure in the country toward strengthening our domestic digital economy.
