Telecommunication Company, Globacom, has provided more options for its subscribers to link their mobile lines to their National Identity Number (NIN) as directed by the Federal government through Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC).
In a statement, Glo said that the new channels were unveiled to support government’s effort in achieving a more secure and sustainable telecoms industry in Nigeria as well as to provide an hitch free platform for Glo subscribers in the registration process.
“We have further simplified the process for our esteemed customers to link their National Identification Number (NIN) 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 *109*your NIN# directly. Customers can also call 109 to update their NIN via voice call”, Globacom said.
Issuing advise to subscribers who have registered with the National Identity Management Commission (NIMC), but have not obtained their NIN to dial *346# to retrieve the number, Globacom also enjoined those without the number to visit any NIN centres across the country to enroll immediately.
