Speaking at the first two divisions visited-Epe and Ikorodu-in her welcome address, the General Manager, Ibilola Kasunmu, said the sensitization programme was aimed at educating and sensitizing residents of these divisions, what the Lagos ID is about, why it is important and how they could key into the initiative and be a part of the plan.
Furthermore, she described it as a smart card with multiple security features and applications, as she appealed to residents in these divisions to kick off their registration by visiting the LASRRA website: www.lagosresidents.gov.ng and proceed to any LASRRA Registration Center nearest to them for biometrics capturing to complete the process for the new LAG ID card, stressing that registration is absolutely free.
Kasunmu, who spoke in Yoruba language, said: “The ID card comes with a lot of benefits for residents. It will serve as a means of personal security and identity verification at points of accessing various government services and make access to healthcare services a lot easier for residents. Among other benefits, having the card will also grant you access to loan applications, enable seamless payment for transportation on all Lagos State transport services like BRT and LagFerry, and can also be used for cash withdrawals from the ATM points.”
