Total telecommunications solutions provider, Globacom, has begun the registration of people for the National Identification Number (NIN) at several of its retail outlets across the country.
This followed the approval licence granted Globacom by Nigerian Identity Management Commission (NIMC) for the telecommunications giant to commence NIN enrolment for people who are yet to register.
A statement released by Globacom on Friday indicates that the company has already deployed devices aligned with NIMC standards and has commenced the exercise in several Gloworld outlets, adding that arrangements are being concluded for retail outlets that are not live yet for NIN enrolment to also begin soon.
The company explained that Globacom subscribers who already have their NIN but are yet to link them with their mobile numbers can do so by simply texting their NIN to 109.
Alternatively, they may dial *109# to submit their NIN. Customers can also call 109 to update their NIN via voice call. Globacom subscribers with additional enquiries are equally encouraged to contact any of its customer contact channels or visit https://www.gloworld.com/ng/nin for further support.
Globacom restated its commitment to ensuring that customers have uninterrupted experience on its network as well as its support for Government’s efforts to create a secure and sustainable industry.
