Telecommunication company, MTN Nigeria has started enrolling customers for the National Identity Number (NIN) in Abuja, Lagos and Port Harcourt.
The company’s senior manager, external relations, Funso Aina made the announcement on Friday, 29th January, 2020.
Aina told Punch that MTN has procured equipment that meets the standard of the NIMC and has started registering subscribers in Lagos, Port Harcourt, and the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Abuja.
He also stated that the enrollment will spread to more states in the country as the telecommunication firm gets more licenses to operate in this capacity.
“We have commenced enrollment for NIN at a limited number of locations. This number will rise as certification and other dependencies on the Nigerian Identity Management Commission for the roll-out of such locations are addressed.
“We have applied for and secured NIMC licence for enrollment. Additionally, we have invested in acquiring devices aligned with NIMC standard.”
