BRISIN implementation can generate jobs -Expert


Abuja- Dr Anthony Uwa, the Managing Director of Dermo Impex Nigeria Ltd., said implementation of Basic Registry and Information System in Nigeria (BRISIN) would generate between eight and 10 million jobs.

Uwa said this in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Abuja on Sunday.

He said BRISIN, also known as the National Integrated Data and Information Infrastructure (NIDII), would develop Nigeria’s economy if effectively implemented

According to him, his consulting company will use the available data to provide solid instrument for fighting social vices and for developing the nation’s economy.

“BRISIN in Nigeria is extra-vital because it is the only instrument that has no colour, religion, ethnicity or gender.

“It is the only instrument for strong and vibrant economy with monitoring and control system; reducing the gap between the rich and the poor,’’ he said.

According to Uwa, Nigeria is basically living on commerce and less production; the economy that cannot function well without BRISIN.

He said that the Federal Government had identified BRISIN as the fundamental and solid solution since 2007 when it was approved by the Federal Executive Council.

He added that following the approval, the BRISIN Steering Committee had since been inaugurated with members from the National Planning Commission, National Bureau of Statistics, National Population commission and Ministry of Interior, among others.

“The project should have been in its full operational statues if bureaucracy had allowed for it; we have dragged implementations for so long but it is better late than never,’’ he said.

He said BRISIN was intended to register and capture the imagery of every Nigerian from the 8812 ward level and the 36 states and Abuja.

According to him, apart from curbing insecurity, BRISIN will provide a solid foundation for planning technological and socio-economic growth for Nigeria.(NAN)
