‘N3000 for renewal, N5000 for replacement’ — NIMC sparks outrage over national ID card charges
The National Identity Management Commission (NIMC) has sparked outrage on social media platforms following their announcement of charges for renewal and replacement of the national ID card.
The commission had on Tuesday taken to its Twitter page to inform Nigerians that those who lost their ID cards would pay N5000 to replace them, while those whose cards expired would pay N3000 for renewal.

“Card Renewal is N3000 while Card Replacement is N5000,” it wrote.
“When your National e-id card expires it cost N3000 payable via Remitta for renewal.”
The announcement did not go down well with quite a number of Nigerians and they took to the microblogging platform to express their annoyance and frustrations.
“N5000 to renew National ID card? That means your citizenship as a Nigerian expires after a certain period of time so you have to renew your citizenship with N5000 or else you are no longer Nigerian? Who brought up this foolishness,” a Twitter user said.

National ID card renewal is N3000, while National ID replacement is N5000. If you withdraw money, Gov't will collect money. If you deposit money, Gov't will collect money. If you use POS, Gov't will collect money, etc. Very soon Nigeria Gov't will tax us for breathing too much.

Please don't be deceived that the National ID is as useless as whatever you can imagine. The national ID card they want you to renew do not carry your National Indentification Number (NIN) of 11 digits. So why do @nimc_ng want you to renew it?
I applied for Nigeria National ID in 2015. 4 years 4 months later it is not ready. So I've been wondering what folks who work at National Identity Management Commission have been doing there for the past 4 years & 4 months.
NIMC must really be mad. 3k to renew national ID of which country please? Now National ID is required for everything including our yeye passport that we pay 35k to renew. We must really be a joke to this government. #TyrantGovernment
Hahaaha funny. But wait o, within the past few month there have been "reasons" to increase in tax, charges on deposits above 500k, communication charges, now National ID by govt agencies but no reason to commence payment of minimum wage. We sha get leaders https://twitter.com/channelstv/status/1184149039639678979 …
How long did i t take to register for passport n get it. He w long did it take to register for voters card n get it? Why is the national ID taking this time for people to obtain theirs?@nimc_ng your are a bunch n shameless people. FG should scrap you.
I applied for my National ID since 2016. All I have till date is the laminated rectangular paper because the real card has never been ready and might never be! Now there’s a charge on renewal? Am I renewing the rectangular paper that doesn’t even fit inside my wallet?
