FG Launches Mobile App for NIN Applicants

Following the directive by the Federal Government for compulsory linking of National Identification Number (NIN) to SIM cards, the National Identity Management Commission has launched a Mobile App for the enrollment of the NIN by applicants.

This was contained in a statement issued by Femi Adeluyi, an aide to the Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Isa Pantami.

The statement while disclosing that the NIMC Mobile App is now available for public use, noted that an improved national Identity Number slip has been released.

It read in part, “The App provides a secure channel for all Nigerians and legal residents to easily verify and authenticate their identities on-the-go using smartphones. It also enables them to link the NIN to their phone numbers.”

“The App offers a built-in harmonisation process that allows for its use across other government services including the Nigerian Communication Commission, Federal Inland Revenue Service, Federal Road Safety Commission, and National Health Insurance Scheme, to mention a few,” it said.

“The new improved NIN slip is a pocket friendly and an easy to verify the version of the NIN. It 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 colour (if preferred), print and laminate as desired. The current NIN Slip will remain valid and will be gradually phased-out,” the statement added.
