Globacom has announced more ways its subscribers can link their phone numbers to their National Identity Number (NIN) as directed by the telecom industry regulator, Nigerian Communications Commission.
The telco unveiled three additional update options available to customers for the completion of the process.
Globacom said in a statement: “We have further simplified the process for our esteemed customers to link their National Identification Number to their mobile numbers by giving them more options to conduct the process.
“Firstly, they can simply text their NIN to 109. Alternatively, they may dial 109# or *109your NIN# directly. Customers can also call 109 to update their NIN via voice call.”
The telco further explained that the four options were meant to further simplify the NIN update process for subscribers and help the government achieve a more secure and reliable database.
The telco advised customers who do not have their NIN to dial *346# to retrieve the number if they have already registered with the National Identity Management Commission while calling on those without a NIN to visit any NIN enrollment center to get one.
