    1. Its awesome what the federal government is doing with NIMC in making sure we all get registered and obtain our own national ID card. However, its really annoying for one to have to wait for 2 to 3 years after registration before the card will be available for collection.

      If you look at it, when such card is finally delivered after the long wait, the supposed individual (especially in the case of young people/students) whose photo was taken might no longer look as though the ID card belongs to them since they now look a lot older and different.

      Apart from that, in the case of theft, or loss, getting back the ID card with such a long wait can actually make individuals to give up on it entirely which to me is not encouraging.

      I have put together a well detailed post listing some of the Challenges Faced While Registering for NIMC national ID card. You can go take a look before registering.
