The National Identity Management Commission (NIMC) has warned that applicants need to complete their National Identity Number (NIN) registration, even if their Bank Verification Number (BVN) generates a NIN.
NIMC stated this on its Twitter feed on Tuesday.
“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.
Kindly visit an enrollment center to complete your NIN registration,” the update read.
Recall that NIMC told Nigerians who already have the National Identification Number (NIN), will still have to pay N15,000 to correct their dates of birth in the commission’s database.
NIMC Regional Coordinator, Mrs Funmi Opesanwo, said this on Wednesday at the commission’s office in Alausa, Lagos State.
According to her, NIN holders would be required to pay a N5,000 processing fee for card renewal or card replacement, as well as an address modification fee of N500.
