Angola celebrates National Day of Identification
5-Jan-22: "The Ministry of Justice and Human Rights celebrates, today, January 5th, the Identifier Day, the date on which the first Identity Card of independent Angola was issued, attributed to the late President Dr. António Agostinho Neto.
The moment is for reflection on the activities already carried out within the scope of the attribution of citizenship to all Angolans. It is important to highlight the great Program for the Massification of Birth Registration and Attribution of the Identity Card that takes place in Angola and in the diaspora.
From January 5, 1976 to the present date, 17,583,485 Identity Card processes have been processed and, currently, 12,286,543 Angolans have ID cards." - Ambassador Cavuquila
