The Federal Government has approved the development and release of an improved National Identity Number (NIN) slip and a Mobile App for easy NIN registration.
This is part of the Federal Government’s Policy to improve the process of obtaining NIN and linking it to SIM.
In a statement by the Technical Adviser to the Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Mr Femi Adeluyi, the Minister, Dr Ibrahim Isa Pantami said the efforts are aimed at supporting the Policy to link subscribers’ NIN to their SIM.
The statement says the App provides a secure channel for all Nigerians and legal residents to easily verify and authenticate their identities on-the-go using smartphones.
The statement says the app can be accessed via a self-service Portal, where people who already have been issued the NIN, can log in, download a PDF of the document in color, print and laminate as desired while the current NIN Slip will remain valid and will be gradually phased-out.
The statement says Users can download the improved NIN Slip at dashboard.nimc.gov.ng.
