Nigeria to start keeping birth, death registrations record electronically

The Federal Government has approved the development of an Electronic Civil Registration and Vital Statistics System (eCRVS), a platform that will effectively keep electronic records of birth and death registrations.

This is contained in a statement issued by Mr Ifeanyi Nwoko, Acting Head of Media and Publicity, of the Infrastructure Concession Regulatory Commission (ICRC) in Abuja.

The commission said N5.3 billion private sector fund would be injected by the concessionaire, Messrs Barnksforte Technologies while the National Population Commission would be the project grantor.

The ICRC said the project seeks to capture and verify births and deaths in Nigeria and provide attestation and verification of certificates to end users on the platform.

“Prior to this, these registrations have been carried out manually, a process that has been characterised by low coverage and inadequate data,” the ICRC said.
