Did you just register and receive your NIN or it’s been long you already got that but you are still yet called to come for your National ID, then this post is certainly for you. I wonder why this country is so tiring getting everything one desires is always a problem like everything even your own ID which is suppose to be available at all time or replaced immediately if you damage or misplace it.
Am going to be explaining with pictures how to get an alternative card a very good and only approved ID card issued by the Federal Republic of Nigeria so its legit and note this please this alternative card is referred to as [ DIGITAL IDENTITY CARD ] you won’t be given the original card but a pure photograph of your National ID card, it has some of the important informations on it like your birth date and year, full name, digital ID number, gender etc.
WHAT IS NIN?
NIN is an abbreviation for NATIONAL IDENTIFICATION NUMBER. NIN is the unique number assigned to every adult citizen of Nigeria, every NIN posses it own tracking ID [ e.g Q5G1UYEJJ5550T4 ]. After issuing the NIN which is just 11 numbers, people are given some kind of print out which is called the NIN SLIP, in this slip contains the informations of an individual.
WHAT IS NIMC?
NIMC stands for NATIONAL IDENTITY MANAGEMENT SYSTEM. The NIMC is like a body of government in the federal Republic of Nigeria, NIMC is the administration in charge of registration and distribution of NINS and NIN CARD.
HOW TO REGISTER FOR NIN?
Somehow or the other you are going to need your NIN it’s even a compulsory document for every Nigerian citizen. Especially now we need it to link to our various sims or failing to do so will result to blocking of the sim and I think the federal government of Nigeria already made a law that whosoever does not link his/her NIN, risk some jail term. To register for your NIN you simply need to visit any of the NIMC registered branch in Nigeria, most tertiary schools are known to be NIN registration centres. You can as well send a mail to ( firstname.lastname@example.org ).
WHEN WILL MY NATIONAL ID CARD BE READY?
Oh I know this must have been in your mind right from when you got your NIN SLIP and even now, you see the thing is only the NIMC would disclose the date when each and everyone ID CARD would be ready everything is just so slow in this country I wonder why. The National Id Card collection isn’t available at the moment but you can track when your Id Card would be ready, check here to track and know your Id Card Progress so far.
