ANSSID — the acronym for Anambra Social Service Identification, is a creation of the present Government of Anambra State.

It is introduced to uniquely identify all its citizens and residents of the State for planning, social development and other Government social benefits.

The identity management system is coordinated by the Anambra State Board of Internal Revenue Service — AIRS.

A Nigerian fully-owned Software Development Company, Appmart Integrated Limited, was contracted to develop the system in early months of 2018. Using its cutting-edge information technology,  the system/project was completed and inaugurated in April of the same year 2018.

Since its launch in April 2018, the system has registered 273,653 individuals and 12,393 businesses in Anambra State. The target is that in the next 4 years, it would have registered 60% of Anambrarians – both resident and non-resident, and her residents.

Several gains and advantages can be garnered from the deployment of the identity management system. Chief among them is the fact that it has assisted the State Government in the area of enhanced security by identifying the citizens and residents therein. Others are in the areas of planning, implementation of Government policies and social and economic welfare of the citizens and residents of the State, amongst others.

It is hoped  other States in Nigeria will also key into this laudable programme for a better Society.
