9mobile NIN Linking

If you are a citizen or resident of Nigeria, you should understand the importance of linking your National Identification Number (NIN) to your 9Mobile line or any other network operator you use.

In 2015, the National Identity Management Commission (NIMC) announced that all transactions involving individual identification must use the NIN, a unique 11-digit number assigned to every citizen or resident of Nigeria as a lifelong identification.

NIMC later announced that all network operators in Nigeria must request valid NINs from ALL their subscribers to update SIM registration records. This means that to own a working SIM card in Nigeria, you need to have your NIN.

So, if you have already enrolled for your NIN and have it with you, here is how to link your NIN to your 9Mobile line.
