9mobile has disclosed that they’ve commenced NIN registration in some parts of Lagos and Abuja as centres in other cities are yet to be announced.
In a statement on Monday, the telco stated that the development followed federal government’s approval granting telecoms the licence for NIN enrollment to ease the pressure of large crowd turnout at the various enrollment centres of the Nigeria Identity Management Commission (NIMC).
The Chief Commercial Officer, 9mobile, Mr Stjepan Udovicic said, “9mobile will always seek opportunities to collaborate with regulators and other stakeholders on initiatives that will enable Nigerians to achieve their full potential.”
“We are pleased to announce the commencement of NIN enrollment at select experience centres duly approved by NIMC to help expand registration access to Nigerians ahead of the new deadline set by the government for the exercise,” Mr Udovicic further said.
