In the year 2023, the National Population Commission (NPC) will conduct the NPC Birth Registration, a program aimed at registering the births of children in Nigeria.
In partnership with UNICEF and NYSC, the initiative aims to register 12 million eligible children under 5 nationwide.
The registration process issues birth certificates with vital details like the child’s name and nationality.
However, there have been some challenges regarding the selection of the local government area, training center, and place of residence for the registration process.
Here we will discuss these issues and provide solutions to fix them.
