NIN: NIMC Rolls Out New Instructions For Registration

Fresh prescriptions to get a National Identification Number (NIN) have been announced by the National Identification Management Commission (NIMC).

This was disclosed in a statement titled, ‘NIMC Adopts Booking System For NIN Enrolment’ by the spokesman of the commission, Kayode Adegoke.

The commission stated that the second wave of the coronavirus pandemic has forced a change in the mode of acquiring a NIN.

The commission stated, “Mindful of the second wave of the COVID-19 which continues to severely affect public health and cause unprecedented disruptions, the Commission wishes to announce that it has adopted a couple of measures to contain the spread of the virus whilst ensuring its services to Nigerians are not entirely interrupted.

“Effective December 30, 2020, attending to applicants would be based on Booking System. For Bookings, applicants are to visit any of the NIMC Offices closest to them during stipulated business hours (9am – 1pm).

“Once admitted into the office, a Number-Issuing queue management system will be in place to ensure orderliness and strict adherence to Covid-19 Protocols.”

All applicants were advised to follow COVID-19 protocols as laid down by the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC).

The need for a NIN was made urgent following a directive by the Nigerian Communication Commission (NCC), instructing all telecommunications networks in the country to deactivate the phone lines of phone subscribers whose numbers aren't linked to their NIN.
