Birth certificate will only be issued to persons under 18 years – NPC

The National Population Commission, NPC, has said that birth certificates will not be issued to persons older than 18 years of age.

The NPC State Director in Oyo State, Mr Akin Oyetunde, disclosed this while briefing newsmen on Tuesday in Ibadan.

“The NPC is guided by an Act propagated in 1992, so, any child born before 1992 will not be issued birth certificate.

“Instead of birth certificate, people born before 1992 and those above 18 years will be given Attestation of Birth.

“However, those below 18 years will be issued birth certificates by the Commission,” he said.

Oyetunde further stated that all local governments in the state have birth and death registration centers.
