Basic Registry and Information System in Nigeria (BRISIN), is the data information system being put in place in Nigeria to enhance planning and also aid development in the Nation. BRISIN as reported by News Agency of Nigeria, NAN, is an integrated system for the collection, storage, and distribution of information to support the management of the economy of Nigeria.

The implementation of the project which has been approved by the Federal Government is to be carried out by Dermo Impex, an Information and Communication Technology (ICT) Company based in Italy.

The take-off of the project had been subjected to delay due to several issues such as the lack of budgetary provision, the non-receipt of concrete response from the scheme’s technical partners on their management/board structure as well as their commitment to the project, among several others. Eventually, those issues were sorted out and new developments with potentials of affecting the delivery of the project in its original form emerged. Some of these new developments include; harmonization of activities and deliveries of statutory agencies charged with the responsibility of data collection and storage or whose activities require the functional and verifiable database in alignment with the BRISIN proposal. This is important in order to avoid unnecessary duplication of efforts and waste of scarce resources.

Head of BRISIN implementation, Dr. Anthony Uwa, urged the Federal Government to fast-track the review of the BRISIN project and ensure its effective implementation as soon as possible. He also indicated that the technical partners of the project had done a lot of work to deliver the project to the government. He further pointed out that the system had been publicized by the solution provider both locally and internationally and this has further elevated the image of the country abroad. These further boost investors’ confidence in the country and that the country is on the right path towards sustainable development.

The BRISIN project had been initiated over 9 years ago and what the people are waiting for is the flag off to confirm the willingness of the current Nigerian government to give credit to their change mantra. Getting the project to start will convince the world of its readiness to fight corruption, guarantee the security and create an enabling environment for investment. As reported by NAN, no fewer than 9,822 servers will be installed in all the wards, local governments and states in the country as part of implementing the project. The service provider is to install one server per ward in all the 8, 812 wards across Nigeria and then move up to the 774 local government headquarters.


The BRISIN project is a very important project that has been in the works for over 9 years. It has gone through several planning stages and is finally set to launch with the recruitment of 5000 Nigerians in the FCT. The scheme is designed to improve data collection, storage, and distribution in the country. It is well documented that Nigeria does not have an efficient data management system in place currently, BRISIN is set to change that.
