The National Identity Card Processing and Administration system is the only thorough way a state and a nation’s population figure can be ascertain. To be accepted in a given locating or geographical area, it is necessary to bear a mark. Mark here does not really mean facial mark rather an identity. This identity card will bear your name, states, every single information about you as an individual or person. This therefore boils down to what we know as National Identity Card.
The Question is “what is an identity card? As defined by many authors and dictionary including the encyclopedia. It is a national document certifying State, nationality, issued by the government of a country to every individual or person that the definition National Identity Card can also be called a true image of an individual or person, because it tells well about a person.”
Every citizen of a country that is of the stipulated age constitution have the right to apply for insurance of the National Identity card in the state he or she is staying. The National Identity Card is not issued to people who are not of age. For this reason, there is a need for the maintenance and assessment of records in order to maintain current data concerning an individual. It is also for easy references, to know the number of labour force, Identification and fraud check and also good for revenuer allocation of the federal government for proper population figure.
However, there are different arms in the internal affair ministry which takes the responsibility of checking and issuing the National Identity Card. But as it concerns our area of interest in this project work, Department of National Civil Registration Under the federal ministry of Internal Affairs, of NGWO Local government Area of Enugu State will be our target.
