Lagos State To Begin Registration Of Residents
Nigeria News -The Government of Lagos State Nigeria says it is set to begin the registration of residents in the state.
The government added that the outcome of the exercise would be computed in a database to assist government in providing adequate social services to the estimated 20 million people who live and work in the state.
General Manager, Lagos State Residents Registration Agency, Ms. Yinka Fashola, said this during a stakeholder’s forum at City Hall, Lagos on Thursday.She explained that the responsibility of ensuring every resident in the state was captured in its database had been given to LASRRA, which was established in 2011 by an enactment of the state law.
She said the exercise would enable the government to have a reliable database of all residents as well as provide useful information for social, political, business and financial activities.
She said, “With the exercise, every resident will possess a highly secured unique identification number and card. It will also remove the veil of anonymity from every resident of Lagos.
“The database will serve as a register that will contain all the demographic information of all residents of Lagos State. About 1,000 personnel will be engaged for the exercise.”
Fashola said technological features such as finger prints would be employed to authenticate and validate the registration process. She added that identity cards, which residents would be able to utilise in transactions with any government agency, would be given at the end of the exercise.
She added, “It contains a unique reference number (residency number) that links every individual to his or her own personal and biological data. The residency number serves as a reference for the respective individual in their transactions with government bodies.”
The General Manager said 57 registration stations had been opened in the 20 local governments and 37 local council development areas in the state. She urged residents to take advantage of the process.
She said, “If you reside in the state, you are required to register. If you are newly taking up residence in the state and intend to be here for more than six months, you are also required to register.
“Anyone who wishes to access the services provided by Lagos State Government for its residents will be asked to authenticate their residency and identity.”
Vice-Chairman of House Committee of Science and Technology in the state House of Assembly, Mr. Gbolahan Yishau, said the project would assist government in planning as well as allocating resources where such is needed.-ThePunch
