Nigerian singer, Banky Wellington, also referred to as Banky W has blasted the Muhammadu Buhari led administration for creating citizens register for NIN despite the recent spike in coronavirus cases reported within the country.
The singer who took to his Twitter account to lament the shortage of social distancing among citizens at various NIN centers said the federal was irresponsible for creating people scramble for NIN numbers while the country fights deadly pandemics.
According to him, people are being exposed to an equivalent virus that has been taking the lives of many all due to NIN registration.
He, however, urged the federal to try to do something about things or put an end thereto.
“How they will tell us to try to social distancing on one hand then use this NIN madness to show all folks to covid?
“This is totally liable for the federal and to us as a rustic, to enforce this mad scramble for NIN numbers within the middle of Covid’s 2nd wave. People are dying.
“We should be smarter, wiser, and than this for goodness sake.
“In the center of the pandemic, this is often how our Nigerian Government has its citizens queuing up to urge their NIN numbers.
“Completely reckless, inconsiderate, and dangerous. Then tomorrow the NCDC will release covid infection rates and say social distancing. This country sha,” he wrote.
Recall that the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) had told telecommunications companies to dam all unregistered SIM cards within the country in a fortnight.
Customers of all networks were told to register with their National Identity Numbers (NIN) or risk losing their numbers.
