Gov. Akinwunmi Ambode of Lagos State on Wednesday urged Lagos residents to register with the National Identity Card Management Commission (NIMC) because of its numerous benefits.

Ambode spoke at the State House in Alausa, shortly after his biometrics were captured by officials of the commission.

The governor said it was in the best interest of residents to do so, just as it was good for data and financial planning.

“I just finished registering as a proud Nigerian.

“I also urge all Lagosians to do the same,’’ Ambode said.

The Regional Coordinator of the NIMC, Mr Kayode Adegoke, presented the registration slip to the governor after the registration.

He also called on all Lagosians to register, saying there are were many benefits attached to the registration.

According to him, the national identity cards that will be eventually issued to those who register have 18 security features.

Adegoke said the registration would enhance ease of doing a lot of things in the country.

He said that 50 registration centres had been created across the state.
