NIN Generated With BVN Must Be Updated At NIMC Centres Before SIM Integration – FG

“You must complete your NIN registration even if your BVN has generated a NIN,” NIMC said.

The National Identity Management Commission (NIMC) has stated that it is compulsory for Nigerians to visit the enrolment centres to complete their National Identification Number (NIN) registration irrespective of generating same through Bank Verification Number (BVN).

NIN Generated With BVN Must Be Updated At NIMC Centres Before SIM Integration – FG 1

KanyiDaily recalls that the Nigerian Communication Commission (NCC) had asked all Telecoms firms to disconnect the SIM cards of all persons who have not integrated their NIN with their phone numbers by January 19, 2021.

Amidst rush by Nigerians seeking to get registered, the agency announced that NIN generated by the BVN can be used for the process, hence, no need to go to the NIMC enrollment centres and queue, due to Covid-19.

However, in a tweet on Tuesday, NIMC said the NIN registration must be completed despite NIN generation through BVN, stressing that individuals with BVN-generated NINs should visit NIMC offices to validate their NINs.

The agency warned that an incomplete registration will hinder the user’s access to the NIMC mobile application and render the NIN-SIM integration invalid.

“You must complete your NIN registration even if your BVN has generated a NIN,” the tweet read.

“If your NIN was generated due to the BVN record harmonisation with the National Identity Database, you will not have access to the NIMC mobile app and your NIN-SIM integration will be invalid. Visit an enrollment centre to complete NIN registration.”
