Lagos residents to be registered

Lagos State residents will henceforth be identified by a unique identification (ID) number to be generated from a biometric data capture. This was made known by Fashola on thursday.
  The ID number, according to him, will be unique to every individual as long as he or she remains a resident of the state.

  He disclosed this at the kick off of the registration of every resident being spearheaded by the Lagos State Resident Registration Agency (LASRRA).
  Fashola said the development is one of the initiatives that would help government effectively plan for the required infrastructure to meet the needs of residents.
  “This is a watershed in the history of Lagos State, as this will enable the state government register and collate the data of all the residents in the state. The data gathered from the exercise will afford the state emergency response team respond to emergency effectively as they will not need to ask for the caller’s data since he or she is calling from his residence.”
