WHAT IS NIN?
NIN stands for NATIONAL IDENTITY NUMBER, it is the authorize personal identity number issued by the government which every citizen of Nigeria should have, if you don’t have one yet you have to go register it will be given to you in 45 minutes depending on how fast and place you visit for it. Getting your NIN nowadays is somewhat difficult due to lot of queue you might meet at the registration centre but if you are student of any higher institution you are lucky because most schools if not all are now allowed to register and provide people their NINS.
WHY THE LINKING OF NINS TO SIM CARDS ALL OF A SUDDEN?
It’s simply for the safety of all and the safety of the internet, there won’t be multiple numbers of a particular network provider assigned and owned by a single person anymore [ i.e ONE MTN, GLO, AIRTEL AND 9MOBILE NUMBER PER PERSON] and numbers won’t be given to under age citizens as you have to be at least 18 to obtain your personal national identity number [NIN]. To learn more visit the official website of the national identity management commission NIMC HERE
where your NIN will be processed, printed and you can track when your NIN card will be available.
