The National Identity Management Commission, NIMC, has insisted that Nigerians complete their national identity number, NIN, registration irrespective of generating it through Bank Verification Number, BVN.
The agency had earlier announced that NIN generated by the BVN can be used after it has been updated at the NIMC enrollment centre.
In a post on its Twitter page, the commission said the NIN registration must be completed despite NIN generation through BVN.
The agency warned that an incomplete registration would hinder the user’s access to the NIMC mobile app and render the NIN-SIM integration invalid.
