The Kano State Ministry of Education has revealed that all Junior Secondary to Senior Secondary (JSS 1 to SS 2) students in Public Schools MUST register and obtain National Identification Number (NIN).

The Chief Public Relations Officer, Kano state Ministry of Education, Aliyu Yusuf in a statement, Thursday, said the Hon. Commissioner of Education Mal. Muhammad Sanusi Sa’id Kiru made the remark in a media chat with journalist during Sallah celebration in Kano.

He further disclosed that enrolling the student will enable the Ministry record demographic data, capture the 10 fingerprints, head to shoulder facial picture and digital signature of each student.

“One of the reason is to establish an updated data base for all students in the state for the purposes of budgetary planning, keeping optimum records  to eradicate manipulations of students record during examinations and,  chances for malpractices and to ensure prudent and judicious application of government funds in the provision of qualitative education in the state”, he said.

The Hon. Commissioner therefore called on the management of KSSSMB, Zonal Directors, Principals and Principal Directors to ensure strict adherence to the new directive as new biodata form has been designed to capture all the information needed.

Consequently, the ministry has concluded arrangements in conjunction 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 Basic, 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 will be distributed to all secondary schools to ensure that students are properly captured and documented.
