The National Identity Management Commission (NIMC) has on Tuesday insisted that all applicants must visit their office to complete their National Identification Number (NIN) registration even if they have used the Bank Verification Number’s (BVN) generated NIN.
NIMC pointed out that NIN generated by the BVN can only be used after it has been updated at the NIMC enrollment centre.
The commission, on their official Twitter account, insists that all affected applicants must visit any of the NIMC enrolment centres to update their biometrics and validate their NIN.
“You must complete your NIN registration even if your BVN has generated a NIN. If your NIN was generated due to the BVN record harmonization with the National Identity Database, you will not have access to the NIMC Mobile App and your NIN-SIM integration will be invalid.”
