Somalia to reintroduce National ID cards after thirty years

The Somali government has announced plans to reintroduce national identification cards for the first time in thirty years. The move comes as part of a wider effort to improve the country’s civil registration system and make it easier for authorities to identify citizens and distinguish them from masqueraders. The massive registration campaign will involve enrolling all eligible Somalis in the national ID database, and issuing cards to those who meet the criteria.

The new ID cards are expected to boost security and help the government provide better services to the people of Somalia. The cards will contain biometric data such as fingerprint and iris scans, as well as the holder’s photo and personal information. The government is hoping that the ID cards will help to reduce the rampant insecurity in the country, as well as improve the delivery of services to the people.

The country’s civil registry collapsed in 1991 after the ouster of Siad Barre, leading to disorder and confusion which has systematically degenerated into chronic instability, affecting economic growth in the process. Somalia has suffered internal problems with the identification of persons being the elephant in the room. This has led to a lack of trust in government institutions, and a general feeling of insecurity among the population. The civil registry is essential for the functioning of the state, and its collapse has had grave consequences for the country.

As a strategy to cure the problems of Somalia, the Senate has passed legislation that gives guidelines on civil registration in the country, which would end the state of uncertainty. The Bill will become law once signed by President Hassan Sheikh Mohamud, who has insisted on the need to bring order to the country. These guidelines will help to improve the civil registration process and make it more efficient and organised.

“The Somalia parliament voted to endorse a new national identity program. The program is designed to help improve security in the country, which has been a major concern for the people of Somalia”.

The new national identity program will help to improve security by providing a way for the government to keep track of its citizens. The program will also help to improve security by providing a way for the government to identify individuals who may be involved in terrorist activities.

The new national identity program is a major step forward for the people of Somalia. The program will help to improve security and help to improve the lives of the people of Somalia.

The passage of the new ID law is a huge step forward for Somalia. For too long, the lack of a proper identification system has been a major hindrance to development and progress in the country. With this new law, Somalis will finally be able to get proper ID cards, which will open up a whole range of new opportunities for them.

This law is not just about issuing ID cards, however. It is also about solving the problem of identity. For many Somalis, their lack of a proper ID has been a major source of insecurity and anxiety. With this new law, they will finally be able to get the recognition and documentation they deserve.

Since Somalia lacks any real process for identifying its citizens, terrorist groups have taken advantage of the situation to launch attacks. Because it is so difficult to identify the perpetrators of such attacks, Al-Shabaab militants have often been able to disguise themselves as security officers and launch attacks unimpeded. This has made it very difficult for the Somali government to protect its citizens and has resulted in a deterioration of the security situation in the country.

Somali national Fiqi believes that the registration of all Somalis will reduce cases of insecurity which have been steadily increasing over recent years. The government of President Hassan Sheikh Mohamud has pledged to rectify the system failure which it attributes to laxity in departments which are mandated to come up with stringent policy guidelines.

Fiqi argues that if all Somalis were registered, it would be much harder for criminals and terrorists to slip through the cracks and commit crimes. It would also allow the government to better track and monitor the movement of people in and out of the country, making it harder for people to enter the country illegally.
