To overcome the challenge occasioned by a huge demand for the NIN with a large crowd visiting the NIMC Enrolment Centers nationwide, the Commission has adopted booking system for NIN enrolment.
A statement issued on Tuesday by the Commission signed by the Head of Corporate Communications, Mr. Kayode Adegoke, the Commission said it adopted a couple of measures to contain the spread of the virus whilst ensuring its services to Nigerians are not entirely interrupted.
Recall that the recent Federal Government policy which requires mobile network subscribers to update their SIM registration with a valid National Identification Number (NIN) has occasioned a huge demand for the NIN with a large crowd visiting the NIMC Enrolment Centers nationwide.
According to the statement, effective December 30, 2020, attending to applicants would be based on Booking System. For Bookings, applicants are to visit any of the NIMC Offices closest to them during stipulated business hours (9 am – 1 pm).
Although, the policy has been in place since 4th February 2020 applicants are now crowding all the centers.
It informed that personal information would be collected for the sole purpose of scheduling an enrolment appointment, urging subscribers not to include any personal information other than what is required by the booking register. (Vanguard)
