As a result, the Registrar, Prof Is-haq Oloyede, hence, requested that members of staff in offices nationwide to take part in the experimental registration which commenced on Friday, November 29 and finalised by Tuesday, December 3. Approximately 1,800 members of staff would participate in the provisional registration intended to assess the workability of the new registration regime.
