The Kano State Ministry of Education has announced to the public that all students in Public Secondary Schools (from class JSS1-SS2) MUST make a compulsory registration and obtain National Identification Number (NIN) from JSS 1 to SS 2. Hon. Commissioner of Education Mal. Muhammad Sanusi Sa’id Kiru of n a media chat with a journalist during the sallah celebration in Kano made it known in a statement that the NIN is a MUST. He also said that enrolling students with their MIN will help the Ministry record demographic data, capture the 10 fingerprints, head to shoulder facial picture and digital signature of each student
One of the reasons for the compulsory use of the NIN is to help with the establishment of an updated database for all students in the state for the purposes of budgetary planning, keeping optimum records to eradicate manipulations of students record during examinations and, help massively with the reduction of malpractices and to ensure prudent and judicious application of government funds in the provision of qualitative education in the state. The Hon. Commissioner, therefore, called on the management of KSSSMB, Zonal Directors, Principals and Principal Directors to ensure strict code of conduct to the new directive as new biodata form has been created to capture all the informationd needed
Consequently, the ministry has made conclusion on arrangements in co-existence with the state office of the National Identity Card Management to facilitate the issuance of the NIN number on Zonal basis. Hon. Muhammad Sanusi Kiru also warned that no student will be registered for BECE, Placement, qualifying or any other transitional examinations without the NIN number including also sponsorship of any external examinations by the state government. To this effect, forms are to be distributed to all secondary schools to ensure that their students are properly captured and documented.
