President Bola Tinubu has launched the Digital Civil Registration and Vital Statistics System (CRVS) and the National Geospatial Data Repository.
Vox9ja reports that the President launched the two solutions at the Banquet Hall of the State House in Abuja on Wednesday.
President Tinubu also inaugurated the National Coordination Committee for CRVS, stressing that the system is the basic building block of an identity ecosystem.
He said: “It will help to improve service delivery to all Nigerians and shall ultimately become a vital source of identity data across federal agencies such as NIMC, NIS, Road Safety, INEC, Police, EFCC and other security outfits.
“The system will also improve the ability of our federal agencies to generate vital statistics on important population events and migration, further enabling the government to design well-tailored, effective and efficient policies that are capable of meeting the specific needs of the Nigerian people.

“It is my hope that the current drive to re-position this vital registration system will provide the basis for the 100% attainment of our Year 2030 SDG targets in respect of real-time identity management and population data.”
