Last, to replace or renew your NIMC card, a processing fee of N5,000 is necessary.
In summary, for date of birth correction, the processing fee is N15,000. Also, for card replacement or renewal, N5,000 processing fee must be paid. However, for change of address or name, you pay just N500.
Opesanwo included that many people did misinterpret this information and spread fake news around that the NIMC is requesting money from people when in reality, the payment is just for certain services.
