I've enrolled for this national ID card since 2014, and I'm yet to be issued a permanent ID card. All I've to show for it is the slip.

But Anthony Joshua will most definitely get issued a permanent ID card before me.

Nigeria is for the highest bidder. https://t.co/a3Sgfg2Wps

Lucky guy. He didn't have to wait 5 years for a piece of paper.

I did mine before gaining admission. I've finished serving and their HQ in Abuja doesn't have my permanent ID card

I wore long trouser to their office in Jos, I had to go back home and change to skirt before they attended to me.

On the flip side, Anthony Joshua would get his National ID tomorrow. He's not a common man like you and me. This system is not meant for the common man, it's meant for the rich and connected. Stop stressing it. Get rich or japa.
