Furthermore, she mentioned at the briefing that Nigerians are required to pay to acquire the new general multipurpose national identity card. She emphasized that the NIN itself is free, but the card isn’t.

“Just like you pay to process your ATM cards in banks, Nigerians will pay through the banks to access their cards within 24 hours after payment to get the digital multipurpose card.”
