How to register for NIN and easily connect SIM

By Rasheed Sobowale

The Federal Government of Nigeria in its intention to stop criminal activities through Nigeria for the Communication Commission (NCC) has determined that all subscriber identification modules (SIMs) be associated with a national identification number (NIN).

This allows government and other accredited agencies to be able to access anyone’s details from the national database when needed.

New registration?

If you have never registered for NIN, you will need to visit any nearest National Identity Management Commission (NIMC) office. However, be sure to follow all COVID-19 prevention protocols during your visit:

  1. Wear face masks
  2. Repair your hands
  3. Maintain social distancing. Stand at least 6 feet from the person closest to you, especially if you are okay

The non-compliance of some Nigerians caused the NIMC to close some of its centers.
