In a significant development, President Bola Ahmed Tinubu of Nigeria is set to introduce a “state-of-the-art” electronic Civil Registration and Vital Statistics System (e-CRVS) and a Geospatial Data Repository on November 8, 2023.

This initiative is in line with the directives issued during the “Sixth Session of the Conference of African Ministers Responsible for Civil Registration and Vital Statistics.”

The National Population Commission (NPC) and the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) jointly developed the e-CRVS Operational Readiness Assessment Report, highlighting the potential of digital technologies to improve Civil Registration and Vital Statistics while storing and integrating data from various sources.

President Tinubu’s participation in this launch event emphasizes the commitment of the current government to strengthen civil registration data collection, processing, and the efficient accessibility of vital statistics. He stated, “It aims to accelerate the improved civil registration and vital statistics systems in Nigeria over a period of ten years, from 2023 to 2030, in a bid to achieve Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 16.9.2 – legal identity for all, including birth registration.

The event, held at the State House Conference Centre in Abuja at 10:00 am, was organized by the National Population Commission in collaboration with UNICEF and Barnksforte Technologies Limited.

Furthermore, it encompasses the inauguration of the National Geospatial Data Repository and the National Coordination Committee on CRVS.

The e-CRVS system marks a departure from the traditional paper-based recording of vital events, such as births, marriages, and deaths. Mr. Nasir Isa Kwarra, Chairman of the National Population Commission, affirmed this transformation and its impact, saying, “This electronic CRVS promises to revolutionize how vital events are recorded, tracked, and analyzed in the country.

He further explained, “The Public-Private Partnership arrangement is designed to promote the Vital Reg System as a completely electronic system that digitizes all civil registrations, such as birth registration, stillbirth registration, birth attestation, adoption, marriage notification, divorce notification, migration, and death.

Ultimately, the launch of the e-CRVS system represents a significant stride in the modernization of civil registration in Nigeria, ensuring compliance with global standards and improving the accessibility and accuracy of vital statistics for more informed decision-making and the achievement of Sustainable Development Goals.
