THE Olu of Warri Kingdom, Ogiame Ikenwoli, has said that the National Identity Management Commission, NIMC, registration will afford the country the opportunity of knowing the exact population figures of its citizens.
The Olu made the statement in a chat with Sunday Vanguard shortly after he and his immediate family, comprising his wife, Olori Ikenwoli, Prince Oyowoli Emiko; Princess Emiko, and Omamuli Emiko registered for the National Identification Number being championed by the monarch at his Aghofen
Palace Secretariat in Warri on Friday.
While noting that the registration is good for Nigerians, Ogiame pointed out that Nigeria is not sure of its population figure.
“Some people say we are 170 million, some say we are 180 million and others say we are 160 million people in Nigeria,” he stated.
