Nigerians To Use New ID Cards As ATM Cards Too


Nigeria's new national identity card will also serve as an ATM card across the globe, anywhere MasterCard is accepted, reports Nigerian Today's Telegraph and Naija Mayor.
According to the reports, the National Identity Management Commission's (NIMC) director of Technical Services, Emmanuel Ogungbe, said that the commission had already signed an agreement with MasterCard. Ogungbe said that, besides being just an ID card, this general-multi-purpose card is also a cash card, so the holder can withdraw money from anywhere. It is also said that, especially within the West African sub-region, "it soon would become possible to travel with this card only, passport-free".
