How to print NIN slip for physical verification

by Johnson Daniel

A National Identification Number (NIN) is a unique number that is used to tie together all records about you – demographic data, fingerprints, head-to-shoulder facial pictures, other biometric data and digital signature – in the National Identity Database making it relatively easy to confirm and verify your identity when you engage in travels and transactions.

The NIN has so many uses with one even extending to SIM linkage. If you don’t link your NIN to your SIM card, your line could be disconnected or banned till you provide your NIN to your network provider. If you’ve not done this, there’s nothing to fear since the FG has recently extended the deadline for NIN-SIM linkage. Here are several articles that can guide you on how to successfully link NIN to your SIM card:

I sincerely apologize for the loss of funds, getting the ID card after making payment boils down to how stable your internet network is.

It seems your network failed you in this scenario.
