It added, ‘The e-ID card will strengthen identity management in the state by enabling government and citizens alike to easily identify government employees.’

The Anambra government also mentioned that it would ‘also successfully address the current issue of the state’s lack of a standardised and secure method for issuing and confirming ID cards and their holders.’

Meanwhile, the Government of Anambra State has threatened parents and guardians whose wards are seen hawking and begging on the streets stood the risk of arrest and prosecution.

The state Commissioner for Women and Social Welfare, Mrs Ify Obinabo who made some comments during the celebration of this year’s International Day of Families, explained that the action would ensure the survival, proper development, and protection of every child in the state.

According to her, the measure would also serve as a deterrent to parents and guardians.
