Old National Identity Card nin number

37 State Offices of NIMC in Nigeria

Last Updated on November 19, 2021 by Ope Quadri

If there were no data management policy by Nigeria’s government, its citizens wouldn’t have seen the need to register for the National Identity Number (NIN), a prelude to getting the National Identity Card. And lately, some people who haven’t registered want to know if the NIN registration has closed and if not, “where are the NIMC offices in Nigeria?”

First, NIN registration by NIMC has no official closing date, it’s a continuous registration because Nigeria continues to grow every year.

However, the government set December 2021, for Nigerians to link their NIN to their SIM cards, after postponing the closing date several times.

How many Nigerians have enrolled on NIN?

On October 30, 2021, data from the Ministry of Communications and Digital Economy revealed that 66,000,000 Nigerians have enrolled for National Identity Number (NIN).

And on November 18, 2021, the Director-General of the National Identity Management Commission, Mr. Aliyu Aziz, stated that over 67 million Nigerians have been onboarded into Nigeria’s national identity database.

It’s important to note that there are some Nigerians who have got NIN more than five years ago, yet they were told that their National identity card wasn’t ready for collection, which calls for worry.

Even at that, NIMC through its DG said the commission is aiming to get 200,000,000 Nigerians on the national database, stating that Nigerians must have a digital identity wherever they go.

“We want to cover the whole 200 million. By the time we reach there, it may be over 200 million because we are multiplying quickly,” he was quoted as saying by The Punch.


How can I contact NIMC?

If you are yet to get a NIN, or you are yet to link your SIM to NIN, we urge you to avoid the usual last-minute rush. We earlier compiled the NIN registration centres in all the 36 states of the federation, including the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja.

Note: If you’re registering through NIMC agents in Nigeria or abroad, NIN registration isn’t free.

The enrollment process has been decentralised to make it easier and faster for Nigerians to be onboarded to the national database register.
