President Bola Tinubu to launch birth, death, marriage registration portal

In a significant step toward modernizing and streamlining government services, President Bola Ahmed Tinubu is set to launch a revolutionary birth, death, and marriage registration portal. This forward-thinking initiative will not only simplify the process of registering these life events but also pave the way for a more efficient, transparent, and data-driven governance system in Nigeria.

Birth, death, and marriage registration are fundamental aspects of a country’s administrative processes. Accurate records of these events are not only essential for individuals but also play a critical role in national governance, healthcare, social services, and law enforcement. However, the traditional methods of recording and managing these events have often been time-consuming, inefficient, and prone to errors.

Recognizing the need for modernization, President Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s administration has taken a pioneering step by launching a digital registration portal. This portal is designed to simplify the process of registering births, deaths, and marriages, making it more accessible to all citizens.

The registration system includes all civil registrations such as birth registration, stillbirth registration, birth attestation, adoption, marriage notification, divorce notification, migration, and death.

Chairman of the National Population Commission (NPC), Nasir Kwarra, made this known at a pre-launch briefing on Monday.

“The launch of the e-CRVS by Tinubu marks the commitment of the current government and leadership to strengthen civil registration data capture, collation, processing, dissemination, and timely access to statistics on vital events in the country.

“It aims to accelerate the improved civil registration and vital statistics systems in Nigeria over 10 years, from 2023 to 2030, in a bid to achieve the Sustainable Development Goal,” he said.

The chairman stated that the commission, in collaboration with the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF), developed the e-CRVS Operational Readiness Assessment Report, which showed the potential of digital technologies in providing transformative outcomes in CRVS and integrating data from multiple systems to securely store data at scale in a cost-effective way in Nigeria.

The NPC chairman noted that the system provides a digital certificate in all cases, an accessible verification platform for registered organizations, and a central management system (dashboard) that depicts and analyzes collated civil registrations into vital statistics for proper decision-making.
