He said that the identity card registration was “not time bound”.
According to Onyemenam‎, if you wake up today and go to any of our 404 enrolment centres, there will be somebody there to enroll you.
“There is a distinction between the process of enrolling legal resident, where we confirm that the person is legally resident and the process for enrolling a Nigerian who is a citizen.
“We require from you, reader document in this case, while the citizen enrolment can include even an attestation,” he said.
The director-general, therefore, said that an Immigration Service official was attached to every enrolment centre to certify legal resident Nigerians when they appear for registration. (NAN)
