The Commission earlier made the announcement via its official twitter handle; Card Renewal is N3000 while Card Replacement is N5000— NIMC (@nimc_ng) October 15, 2019 In one of the most talked-about issues on Twitter on Tuesday, Nigerians condemn the development totally, regarding it as a means of suggesting that their citizenship expires. See reactions below: N5000 to renenw 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???— WarepamorSammy 🇳🇬 (@Warepamorsammy) October 15, 2019 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.— Zaddy Ajala (@UNCLE_AJALA) October 15, 2019 I applied for National ID since 2014, I'm yet to receive the permanent National ID up until now.In fact, I stopped going to NIMC office to ask if my National ID is ready, now, NIMC is asking I pay N5000 for a renewal of an ID I never got.NIMC is a SCAM!— Edward .E. Onoriode (@Edward_Onoriode) October 15, 2019 Renewing National id card is more like u renewing ur citizenship. Whoever wants to buy my citizenship? u can DM me biko.. pic.twitter.com/uVBHM3vH9n— Dr ÖFË–ÑSÅLÅ Dì ÖKÜ🔥🇳🇬💯 (@_smithsydny) October 15, 2019 Renewing National id card is more like u renewing ur citizenship.

This time, we are taxing those that may have no jobs for being unfortunate enough to be Nigerians. You now have to pay the govt to be a citizen of a country that doesnt give a shit about its citizens https://t.co/YAcrVvMeM6— Ayò Bánkólé (@AyoBankole) October 15, 2019 National ID card 3000for renewal and 5000 for replacement.The question here is, How many people have gotten their National ID card? Someone like me I registered mine since 2012 uptill now I've not gotten mine. Nigeria is really a Joke.😥😥— Mimi_love 🇳🇬 (@MimiLove201) October 15, 2019 So if the National ID of a poor man living in the village expires and he can't afford 5k for renewal, he is no more a citizen of Nigeria again. We all are crazy in this country both the government and the civilians pic.twitter.com/RhGLnRkJPd— Baby boy 👼 (@Iam_ChisomLucky) October 15, 2019 WHY DO I HAVE TO RENEW MY NATIONAL ID CARD? DID MY CITIZENSHIP EXPIRE.. Y'ALL ARE JUST THIEVES https://t.co/iNap9keHIb— small god (@J_Anowa) October 15, 2019 🤣😂🤣😂🤣😂🤣😂😂 make I laugh first.Una never even give ID card to people that registered since 1900, you are already talking of expiration.Biko someone should explain why a national ID card should expire. Like after it expires, the person stops being a citizen or what?— BlessedBeyondMeasure (@Drmuzoic) October 15, 2019 So if My National ID expires, I'll leave the country for free?. Okay guys, Start packing!!! pic.twitter.com/0vlDyhiQxH— Ogbeni Zee (@TheZeeblizz) October 15, 2019 According to NIMC, The requirements for the e-card renewal include, a written application with attached proof of payment receipt made through remita, bank teller, NIN slip and submit it at our office,” the agency had tweeted.
