If You Don’t Have NIN, Read This Good News From FG On How To Register Without Queuing Again.
Federal Government has finally licensed telecommunication companies to register Nigerians who do not have the National Identification Number. This is to make the process easier for Nigerians and reduce the large gatherings at the offices of the National Identity Management Commission across the country. The Punch reported.
Director-General to the NIMC, Aliyu Aziz, said many other public and private organizations have been licensed to register for the NIN.
The National Identity Management Commission said mobile telecommunications companies can now register Nigerians for the National Identification Number. This will address the crowds at the enrollment centers across the country and reduce the risk of contracting COVID-19 in the process of registering for the NIN.
On the 15th of December 2020, the Federal Ministry of Communication led by Isa Pantami directed telecommunication companies to block the lines of Nigerians who didn’t link their NIN to their phone numbers. The process has been cumbersome for Nigerians since then, people gathered in thousands at different enrollment centers across the country amid the second wave of COVID-19.
The Federal Government is also contemplating the extension of the February 9 deadline earlier announced because many are yet to register.
With this new announcement, you can simply work into your network provider’s office and register for the number without queuing for long hours.
Please kindly share this information as much as possible for Nigerians to know.
