This post concerns majorly subscribers on the four (4) major network providers in the country: , Airtel, Glo and MTN. Without much ado, let’s move on.

What Is NIN?

First off, what does NIN stand for? According to the National Identity Management Commission (NIMC), NIN is a set of numbers assigned to an individual upon successful enrolment. Enrolment consists of the recording of an individual’s demographic data and capture of the ten (10) fingerprints, head-to-shoulder facial picture and digital signature, which are all used to cross-check existing data in the National Identity Database to confirm that there is no previous entry of the same data.

As such if you do not have it, you have to visit the nearest NIMC office to register as soon as possible.

For those who have enrolled or registered but yet to to be issued the temporary slip or misplaced the NIN number, instead of stressing yourself to the NIN office to get it, you can simply do that with the aid of the newly introduced USSD code. The National Identification Number (NIN) is a set of numbers (usually 11 in number) that is assigned to a user individual upon successful enrollment for the National Identification by NIMC.
