NIN: NIMC shuts head office in Abuja as deadline looms

The National Identity Management Commission has closed its headquarters in Abuja against all National Identity Number enrolment activities.

The move is not unconnected to discouraging large gatherings at the centre amid the second wave of the coronavirus pandemic.

 

According to NIMC Spokesman, Kayode Adegoke, the Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Isa Pantami, gave the directive on Saturday.

 

Adegoke said the minister reactivated 20 other centers within the FCT to make the process of NIN enrolment much easier for applicants effective Monday, January 18 2021.

 

 

He advised members of the public, residents and visitors to the FCT wishing to enroll for NIN to use any of the 20 NIMC centers.

 

  1. The Federal Government through the Nigerian Communication Commission had ordered telecommunications companies to deactivate telephone lines of subscribers who failed to link their phones to their National Identity Number.

 

Subscribers with NIN have until January 19 as deadline to link their NIN with their SIM cards while subscribers without NIN have until February 9 to do so.
