Background The Federal Government of Nigeria (FGN) is in the process of harmonizing the existing ID ecosystem to develop a foundational ID system which can be leveraged to improve service delivery. A national strategy for identification, called the Strategic Roadmap for Developing Digital Identification in Nigeria, has highlighted the need for a minimalistic, foundational, and ecosystem-based approach to identification in the country. The Strategic Roadmap was approved by the Federal Executive Council of Nigeria (FEC) in 2018 and is being implemented in the framework of the Nigeria Digital ID4D project, with technical and financial support from the World Bank, French Development Agency (AFD), the European Investment Bank (EIB). The Strategic Roadmap is intended to offer a credible pathway for the FGN to develop identification by leveraging the FGN’s existing institutions, capacities, and systems.
