Nigeria is taking a significant stride towards improving the lives of its citizens by introducing a groundbreaking digital birth registration program. This initiative is the result of a collaborative effort between the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), the National Population Commission (NPC), and UNICEF, marking a crucial milestone in enhancing birth registration in Nigeria.
Presently, only around 40% of children born in Nigeria have their births officially recorded, leading to a multitude of challenges. The absence of birth registration hinders access to essential services such as education, healthcare, and social protection. It also exposes unregistered children to a higher risk of exploitation, including child labor, trafficking, and forced marriage. Moreover, limited opportunities for education and employment further exacerbate the difficulties faced by these children.
The partnership between NYSC, NPC, and UNICEF offers an unparalleled opportunity to rectify the birth registration issue in Nigeria and ensure every child can embrace a brighter future. As part of the initiative, the NPC is recruiting adhoc staff for the E-Birth registration program for 2023/2024.
