Togolese deputies approve biometric ID project

(Togo First) - Yesterday, the parliament greenlit the biometric ID project (e-ID Togo). According to the assembly’s president, Yawa Tsegan Djigbodi, the latter aims to “identify each Togolese citizen uniquely.”

For her part, Togolese minister of posts, digital economy, and technological innovation, Cina Lawson said “the adoption of this law is historic because it lays the legal foundations of the system in Togo.”

The project should be implemented at the beginning of 2021. It will lead to the creation of a unique social register that will help better take care of some social needs and offer administrative services. These include among others, universal health coverage, digitalizing the civil status, updating the electoral register, and targeting social aid.
