Security: Edo to Carry ID Card linked with BVN Number – Obaseki


The Edo State Governor, Mr. Godwin Obaseki, has said that his administration is concluding plans to commence the issuance of identification cards to residents across the 18 Local Government Areas of the state as part of measures to check insecurity.

The governor disclosed this while addressing stakeholders at a security meeting held in Auchi, Etsako West Local Government Area of the state.

He said, “We are launching the Edo State Resident Identification System. Every resident in Edo must have an identity card. The identity card will be linked to the Biometric Verification Number (BVN) so that we know who is who.

“With this, if anything happens, we can follow up. We are not saying that we will not accept visitors. We are not saying that we are going to send people away, but if you must live with us, we must know you.
