For you to do almost anything in Nigeria, you need to have some form of identification or documentation. From traveling, banking, going to school, voting, getting a job or even driving. Listed below are some very important documents you should have as a Nigerian which would make the above activities easier.
National Identity Card: You need it to do even simple things like withdrawing from a bank account.
Driver’s License: Necessary to move around in your car. The Nigerian police are not smiling.
Voter’s Card: You cannot vote without having this document
Birth Certificates: You need this to get most jobs in the country
State of Origin: You need this to get into some universities and also apply for scholarships
NYSC Certificates: To get jobs and apply for an elective post

While some of these are not compulsory, they are very important. Don’t say you were not warned.
