How To Link Your NIN To Airtel, Glo, MTN & 9mobile Number (2022)

The Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) had previously ordered the telecommunications service provider to disconnect all users without National Identity Numbers (NINs) within two weeks. Subscribers who do not register with NIN will have their mobile lines disconnected by the end of the year. Regardless of Covid-19, Nigerians must urge the NCC to offer ways for them to easily link their mobile numbers in order to minimize the spread of the virus.

What Does NIN Stand For?

The National Identification Number (NIN) is another name for the NIN. It is a one-of-a-kind number that is assigned to an individual upon successful enrollment, and data such as demographics, occupation, state, and more are collected during enrollment. The National Identification Number (NIN) is made up of 11 non-intelligible numbers that are assigned to a person at the end of their enrolment in the National Identity Database (NIDB)
