The National Identity Management Commission (NIMC) has shut down its enrollment centres in five states over fears of coronavirus.

Kayode Adegoke, NIMC head of corporate communications, made this known in a statement, on Friday.

He said the five states are Lagos, Katsina, Ekiti, Ogun and Anambra.

Adegoke said the decision is a part of the measures taken to avoid the spread of the virus to its members of staff and applicants.

He said activities at the centres will remain suspended until further notice.

“As part of the measures to stop the spread of the coronavirus pandemic, the NIMC has ordered the immediate shutdown of all its enrollment centres in Lagos, Katsina, Ekiti, Ogun and Anambra states,” he said.

“The move becomes necessary to prevent our staff and applicants from getting more vulnerable to the pandemic.

“Consequently, all enrolment activities, card collection and other identity related activities are hereby suspended in the aforementioned states till further notice.

“The closure is not intended to create panic but to arrest the spread of the disease, which has become a global threat.

“We hereby regret any inconvenience the closure may cause as our paramount concern as responsible and responsive commission is the safety of all.”

On Thursday, Nigeria confirmed four new coronavirus cases bringing the total number of cases in the country to 12.
