FG Launches Enhanced NIN Slip Mobile App

FG Launches Enhanced NIN Slip Mobile App

Distinguished Minister of Communications and Digital Economy Dr. Isa Ali Ibrahim Pantami, FNCS, FBCS, FIIM, approved the development and release of an improved National Identification Number (NIN) coupon and mobile app. …

This is part of the federal government’s policy to improve the process of obtaining a NIN and linking it to a SIM card, which has been sent to the National Identity Management Commission (NIMC) and the Nigeria Communications Commission (NCC) for implementation. The N20 and N40 tariffs for checking NINs by individuals and mobile operators were also excluded. These efforts are aimed at supporting the policy of binding subscribers’ NIN to their SIM card, which was approved by the federal government earlier this year and submitted to the NCC on February 4, 2020.

The highly anticipated Web Service (MWS) application, called the NIMC mobile application, and the extended NIN (National Identification Number) are now available for general use. The app provides a secure channel for all Nigerians and legal residents to easily verify and verify their identity on the go using smartphones. It also allows them to bind NINs to their phone numbers. The development of an application and other tools to support the National Identification Number (NIN) process is in line with the National Digital Economy Policy in digital Nigeria.

The app offers an integrated approval process that allows it to be used by other government agencies, including the NCC, the Federal Revenue Service, the Federal Highway Traffic Safety Commission, and the National Health Insurance System.

On the other hand, the new and improved NIN brief is a pocket-sized version of the NIN that is easy to check. It can be accessed through a self-service portal where people who have already obtained a NIN can access, download a PDF of a color document (if desired), print and laminate as desired. The current NIN Slip will remain valid and will be terminated.

The app is available in the Google Play Store for Android users and the App Store for IOS users. Detailed information on how to download and install the application, as well as download the extended NIN form, is available on the Ministry and NIMC’s social media websites and platforms. Users can also download the improved NIN Slip at https://dashboard.nimc.gov.ng.

The Honorable Minister ordered the NIMC to respond to inquiries as well as provide multimedia guides so that users can easily retrieve their enhanced NIN vouchers and install the app. The Federal Ministry of Communications and the Digital Economy remains committed to creating an enabling environment for all Nigerians and legal residents to obtain their digital identity number.
