ABUJA – The Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Dr Isa Pantami, has said the federal government saw the need to replace BVN with NIN so the country could be in line with the global standard.

“BVN is our secondary database, while NIN and the database is the primary one in the country that each and every institution should make reference to NIMC,”

“That is why we came up with the Nigeria Data Protection Regulation that we always enforce and this is applicable to the database at our disposal.

“We take care of it and make sure that security is excellent and we don’t allow anybody to compromise the content because it is a trust from our citizens given to us.’’
