This important futuristic identification number has nothing to do with November 11th Governorship election or any political undertone , It is just for the easy e
identification of Imolites for future benefits.”

“If you are a resident of Mbaitoli or indigene and do not have your IMSSBN, then you are wrong. The enrollment exercise will take off across approximately 305 Polling Units in Mbaitoli , I humbly appeal to Mbaitoli people not to take this enrollment exercise for granted because alot will be attached to this number in future in Imo State.”
