How to Retrieve your NIN and Link it to MTN, Airtel, Glo and 9Mobile Number Online Easily in Nigeria


The Federal Government of Nigeria as part of its efforts to improve security in Nigeria has made it mandatory for all National Identification Numbers (NIN) issued by the National Identity Management Commission (NIMC) to be linked to each person’s mobile phone(s). This is to ensure that each Nigerian can be tracked with the mobile phone line that they use. In recent years, terrorists, kidnappers, bandits, online fraudsters and other criminal elements have been hiding under anonymity and lack of effective enforcement of mobile SIM registration to carry out different crimes.

How to Retrieve Your NIN Number

If you have registered your SIM cards, applied for your Nigerian passport, vehicle number plate or drivers’ license or already have a Bank Verification Number (BVN) in the recent past, there is a high chance that you already have a National Identity Number (NIN). To check and access your NIN, follow these steps:

1.       Dial *346# on your mobile phone.

2.       Press 1 to retrieve your NIN from the USSD menu

3.       Your 11-digit NIN should appear as a USSD message.

4.       Write it down somewhere safe

Note: This service is now free as the Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Isa Ali Pantami has ordered the NIMC to stop charging N20 for it.

For some people, they might be told, they do not have a NIN. It is better to check with all the mobile phones that you own. I found it available on my Airtel line but not on my MTN. Since, one NIN applies to you regardless of the telecom network you want to link to, it is much better to confirm that you truly do not have it by checking *346# on all your mobile lines.

If truly you do not have it, try visiting any of the NIMC offices closest or convenient for you to get registered.

Now, after identifying your NIN, you need to link it to your mobile phone network to prevent it from being barred. Let us look at how each network does it:

How to Link Your NIN to an MTN Number

1.       Dial *785# using the phone number you wish to link.

2.        Enter your NIN and submit

Alternatively

Dial *785*Your NIN# from the phone number you wish to link. You can also download the MTN App on your mobile phone http://bit.ly/myMTNapp and submit your NIN there.

How to Link Your NIN to an Airtel Number

1.       Dial *121*1#

2.       Submit your 11 digit pin


Alternatively


1. Dial *121#

2. Press 1 for NIN Capture

3. Enter your NIN and submit

 

How to Link Your NIN to a Glo Number

 1.       Get your mobile phone with the Glo SIM

2.       Text:  UpdateNIN NIN FirstName LastName to 109

For example: UPDATENIN 12345678903 Chidera Abdul-Ola

3.       Get confirmation of your submission
