How to retrieve your National Identification Number

The National Identity Management Commission has provided a USSD code for the retrieval of the National Identity Number.

The National Identity Management Commission has published a practical way of retrieving one’s National Identification Number (NIN) via a USSD code.

The recent disclosure is contained in a verified tweet by the NIMC.

The Nigerian Communications Commission earlier issued a two-week ultimatum to telecommunication operators to block all SIM cards that are not registered with the National Identity Numbers, as earlier reported by Nairametrics.

Following the recent directive, the National Identity Management Commission (NIMC) urged the general public to beware of fraudsters and scammers who are on the prowl to swindle unsuspecting people. To avoid this, NIMC urged the public not to click on any unverifiable link requesting for NIN.

In lieu of the recent NCC directive, the National Identity Management Commission has urged the public and citizens who are already enrolled in the NIMC scheme but have lost their NIN to dial *346# to retrieve the NIN.

The USSD code is available on MTN, Airtel, Glo, and 9mobile.

For those people whose SIM card used for the registration of NIN have been reallocated, NIMC urged such people to visit their telecom registration centres to have their NIN merged with their current SIM card.

For name modification, individuals are urged to visit NIMC office and pay the sum of N500 via Remitta. Further breakdown showed that for those adding or changing a new name, newspaper publication and court affidavit are required, while those with misspelt name require no newspaper publication.

Those who are yet to enroll are advised to visit https://www.nimc.gov.ng/ or click HERE and visit the nearest enrolment centre to complete the registration.
