Federal Government of Nigeria has recently Launched Improved NIN Slip and Mobile App for Identity Card Enrollment across the 36 State in Nigeria for a successful Sim Cards Linking via Network Service Providers. Latest news update;
The Honourable Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, @DrlsaPantami, has approved the development and release of an improved National Identity Number (NIN) slip and a Mobile App.
This is part of the FG policy to improve the process of obtaining NIN and linking it to SIM, which was sent to the National Identity Management Commission (NIMC) and the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) for implementation.
Improved NIN Slip and NIMC Mobile App
The highly anticipated Web Service (MWS) Application, called the NIMC Mobile App, and the improved National Identification Number (NIN) Slip are now available for public use. The App provides a secure channel for all Nigerians and legal residents to easily verify and authenticate their identities on-the-go using Smartphone. It also enables them to link the NIN to their phone numbers.
The development of the App and other tools to support the National Identity Number (NIN) process align with the National Digital Economy Policy for a Digital Nigeria.
The NIMC Mobile App offers a built-in harmonization process that allows for its use across other government services including the NCC, Federal Inland Revenue Service, Federal Road Safety Commission and National Health Insurance Scheme, to mention a few.’’
Furthermore, the new improved NIN slip is a pocket friendly and an easy to verify version of the NIN.
It can be accessed through a self-service portal, where people who already have been issued the NIN, can log in, download a PDF of the document in colour (if preferred), print and laminate as desired.
The current NIN Slip will remain valid and will be gradually phased-out.
It can be recalled that the Federal Government had directed telecommunication operators to block all SIM cards that were not registered with NIN within 2 weeks of the announcement.
Following a lot of public outcry against the short time frame given for the implementation of the policy, the Federal Government extended the deadline by 6 weeks.
