Thousands of applicants have been locked outside of the offices of the National Identity Management Commission following a strike embarked on by NIMC staff.
The notice of strike was signed by the President of the Association of Senior Civil Servants of Nigeria, NIMC branch, Lucky Michael, and its Secretary, Odia Victor.
According to a communiqué issued at the end of the congress meeting of the ACCSN, NIMC branch, the strike had become necessary due to the exposure of staff to COVID-19 risks, lack of personal protective equipment, irregularities in promotion and poor funding.
Currently, over 100 million Nigerians have yet to get their NIN which has caused huge crowds at the various offices of NIMC in breach of the COVID-19 protocol.
