Early this year, I decided to contact brands that had advertising outside of Rivers State and pitch them on advertising in Port Harcourt.

#CheckMyPeople were the first few to respond, and they assured me that they would definitely use my services to project their brand here. We had our first Zoom meetings after I sent a detailed proposal of potential sites suitable for their APP.

In the case of two weeks, we agreed and made payments for the first(1st) artillery site off the Port Harcourt/Aba express road. I was responsible for printing of the flex material and rental of the billboard space(a UNIPOLE). The brand already had their APCON vetted certificate on the brand campaign.

CheckMyPeople’s brand includes verifying people, staff, and associates before doing business with them using their NIN; I wasn’t surprised to see my NIN data sheet on our MOU agreements, and I was impressed. Given the number of “Internet fraudsters,” one would be cautious about entrusting money to another.

It provided me with a thorough understanding of how TRUST and CREDIBILITY are the most important foundations for business transactions. This desire to project brands in this cityscape stems from the belief that Rivers State is marketable because it has the right target audience for each brand’s services.

So, if you see the #CheckMyPeople app and are interested in confirming anyone, please download through their website

There are large numbers of applicants who are searching for jobs with questionable characters this leads us to the question ‘How well do you know your employee or prospective hire?

Often, we leave our children, wards, properties, businesses at the mercy of people to take care of them without knowing who they are or if they are really who they say they are. How well do you know your domestic staff like your child’s nanny, house maid, your driver, your security guards, or your new hire in the workplace?

This implies that the registration number (NIN) issued by NIMC to a registrant, and not the plastic card, will be the recognisable means of identifying any Nigerian captured in the database.

CheckMyPeople launches Identity Verification Service (IVS) under License from National Identity Management Commission (NIMC)

A call has been made for Nigerians to carry out background checks before hiring domestic workers for their homes. This admonition was given by CheckMyPeople Limited, at the public unveiling of its Identity Verification Services (IVS).

An Online Community Policing platform, CheckMyPeople Limited, has identified one of  the greatest risks households in Nigeria face today as dependence on unknown and unverified persons for domestic services .  A representative of CheckMyPeople,  Mr. Chudi  Obiofuma,  noted that Nigerian households employ domestic staff  to help with many tasks,  and can afford to have on average two to three domestic staff working for them in one capacity or other. Job responsibilities include; Drivers, Cooks, Maids, Nannies, Security Men, Gate Keepers, Child Minders, Lesson coaches, etc.

According  to Mr. Obiofuma,  the way employers recruit people is usually by word of mouth, and not based on any data or documentation.  People are usually employed through an informal process of referrals, where a family will request the services of a person or agency to search then present candidates for screening and employment, often for a significant finder’s fee plus expenses.

These families, he maintained,  rely on the words of these middle men and women and have no way of independently verifying the information provided to them. Consequently, most  families have been disappointed with the quality of services provided by their domestic staff,  and some have been subjected to theft, job abandonment, poor services, incompetence, and in extreme cases,  physical harm  to their families like poisoning, kidnapping and even murder.

He also noted  that we as employers do not communicate with each other. This “wall of silence” is the reason why these criminal elements posing as domestic staff can move from home to home, committing crimes, as there are no records of such crimes available to prospective employers.  Thus, someone is able to commit a crime in one home, gets fired and quickly get a job in another home under a new name. With no knowledge of their past, the unsuspecting family bring them in and they are able to commit  even more serious crimes.  As currently practiced he maintained, employers have no way of determining  who these people are, where they have worked, what they have done in the past and if they have a criminal past.

To address this absence of background information on prospective domestic employees, he said CheckMyPeople has  introduced the concept of Online Community Policing .  This, he explained is where families come together in an online community to share information about domestic staff that they employ in their homes.  Each family is responsible for documenting the people that work for them on an online database.

He believes that when every member of the community document their staff, the community gets to maintain a comprehensive work history of all domestic employees within that community, and hopefully Nigeria at large.  So with records maintained by current and past employers, communication is established with prospective employers, who are able to see the employment history of each applicant, and better able to assess the risks associated with hiring them, especially if there is a criminal record in their past.
