Firstly, they can simply text their NIN to 109. Alternatively, they may dial *109# or *109*your NIN# directly. Customers can also call 109 to update their NIN via voice call.”
It explained that the new channels were added in support of Government’s efforts to create a secure and sustainable industry, in addition to ensuring that customers have hitch free exercise on its network.
The company also advised customers already registered with the National Identity Management Commission (NIMC) to dial *346# to retrieve their NIN, while customers without a NIN are reminded to visit any NIN centre, to get registered and obtain one immediately.
