I remember when I enrolled for this same National ID, I queued for three days just to get captured on the system and I was asked to come back in two days for my NIN slip as the crowd was much for them to control effectively.
Having gone through Facebook, Instagram and Twitter, I read the reactions of Nigerians to the news of the British boxer, Anthony Joshua enrolling for the National Identification Number (NIN) and getting his NIN slip same day. The National Identity Management Commission (NIMC) announced in a tweet on Tuesday night that Anthony Joshua registered for NIN and got his slip. The post did not state the location where the boxer was issued his slip but we all know it was issued to him in Nigeria.
Since the NIMC posted photos of Joshua at their office on social media, it has sparked a series of reactions from Nigerians. Some commended Joshua for always flying the flag of Nigeria, other Twitter users alleged the NIMC of double standard, as they lament that the process of enrolling for NIN is always cumbersome which has discouraged many Nigerians from visiting the registration centers.
Looking at some comments from twitter users; https://twitter.com/nimc_ng/status/1229844048489439234 …
“I gave up on this foolish National ID exercise the very first day I went for the enrollment. Why do I have to go through such stress for something that won’t be out in 5years?” @EkeVanVictor
“National Id slip dat same day in Nigeria??, I guess Anthony Joshua will get the plastic the next day…” @kelvikitz
“Why can’t you guys make it this easy for vast majority of Nigerians this same way? Anthony Joshua is a special Nigerian, right? God is watching all of us.” @IdentikalTwins @iammaleekpholly @Gidi_Traffic @nairaland @trafficbutter @nidcom_gov
“Comforting that Anthony Joshua got a slip too. Now let his National Id card not be ready just like mine isn’t since 2013” @MideOkuyiga
This is just but a few which reveals the height of corruption in the Nigerian system. The NIMC has accepted their failure to produce permanent National ID for citizens, they settled for the continuous usage of the temporary card & the good thing is, it would never expire. It’s quite shameful that they have now elevated a slip to a means of identification because of your inability to issue National ID cards!
I enrolled for this national ID card since 2015, and I’m yet to be issued a permanent ID card. All I’ve to show for it is the slip. I guess Anthony Joshua will most definitely get issued a permanent ID card before me. Should we agree to one of the comments on tweeter that says, “Nigeria is for the highest bidder.”?? That’s really funny!!
A lot of people are waiting to see how long it will take Anthony Joshua to get his National ID card after registration, because some people have registered since 2015 and they’re yet to get it, with the little Mathematics that I know, Anthony Joshua should get his ID card by 2025. We are watching!!!
On Saturday night, Zendaya wore a gorgeous green blazer dress to accept the Virtuosos Award at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival.
It was paired with Bulgari jewelry and matching glittery pumps, which pretty much broke the internet.
Her longtime stylist and Legendary judge Law Roach posted a photo of the Malcolm & Marie star to Instagram, showing off the look on his muse.
“Easy Kill….. @zendaya wearing @pertegaz and @bulgari jewels,” he captioned his post, listing details for Z’s all-green outfit. The glittery blazer dress — which looks like it came straight from Emerald City — was designed by Manuel Pertegaz for PERTEGAZ.
With a look this good, I don’t blame Zendaya for regramming. The 24-year-old actress took it upon herself to post the photo on her profile as well.

Mike Tyson has backed Tyson Fury to defeat Anthony Joshua in the hotly anticipated heavyweight Battle of Britain later this year.
Tyson believes the speed the Gypsy King possesses means he will be able to outwit Joshua and avoid his powerful punches in a similar tactic that saw him emerge victorious in his rematch with Deontay Wilder in early 2020.
Tyson has spoken glowingly of Joshua’s attributes but reckons that unless he can learn to punch faster than the explosive Bronze Bomber, Fury will claim the WBA, WBO, IBF and IBO from his rival later this year to become the undisputed king, Daily Mail reports.
‘I f***ing love Joshua, but I think Tyson [Fury] is too elusive,’ Iron Mike explained to Haute Living. ‘He’s not going to be able to hit him.
‘I like Joshua a lot, and maybe he punches harder than Wilder, but he doesn’t punch faster than Wilder.
‘And if he doesn’t punch faster than Wilder he’s not going to f***ing touch this guy.
‘That’s just what I see. If Tyson Fury can get away from Wilder’s fast punches, Joshua might be in trouble.’
The venue and date for the heavyweight showdown is yet to be officially confirmed with Joshua’s promoter Eddie Hearn recently revealing he has had a mega-money offer from a mystery individual.
Hearn said: ‘I had an approach, not from the Middle East, but it was the most bizarre approach.
‘I can’t say who it was but it was from a very wealthy individual and he wants to do something very special. We’ve had 20 approaches for this fight but you know which ones are serious.
‘But this one was just well out there. And it’s a realistic option, money is not an issue with this guy. Commercially it’s a bit strange, but it’s not about that. It’s a trophy asset to say… “this is the biggest event in the world”.
