NPC To Digitise Birth, Death Registrations

The National Population Commission (NPC) has disclosed plans to digitise the registration of birth, death and other vital civil information in the country.

In a statement, NPC’s acting Director, Public Affairs, Nkoyo Nwakusor, said the move to stop manual registration was to enable self-service and assisted-service to the public to register vital events such as birth, still-birth, death, birth attestation, diaspora birth and death notification, marriage and divorce notifications, migration registration, vital certificate verification and hospital onboarding.

She noted that through VitalReg, a state-of-the-art digital application, there would be digital certificates in all cases and accessible verification platforms to registered organisations with a central management system (dashboard) that depicted and analysed collated civil registrations into vital statistics for proper planning and decision-making purposes.

The statement quoted the Chairman of NPC, Nasir Isa Kwarra, that the VitalReg marked a departure from the traditional paper-based recording of vital events to a state-of-the-art digital solution that conformed to international best practices.

On his part, the Chief Executive Officer and Managing Director of Barnksforte Technologies Limited, Adedayo Bankole thanked the commission and the federal government for the opportunity to provide the technology solution to digitalise civil registration and vital statistics in Nigeria, adding that they would continue to improve the application to boost efficient data generation in the country.
