The picture of heavyweight champion, Anthony Joshua, applying for his National Identification card has generated mixed reactions on social media.

The professional boxer was recently at the National Identity Management Commission (NIMC) office in Abuja, the nation’s capital, for the registration.

The pictures were shared by NIMC of their official Twitter handle with the caption, “Anthony Joshua enrolls for the National Identification Number and issued his NIN slip.”

Some others in their reactions explained how they got their NIN immediately after they enrolled.
