What Is NIN?

The NIN is a unique set of numbers assigned to every individual after enrolling with the National Identification Management Commission (NIMC). Enrolment involves recording demographic data, capturing ten fingerprints, a head-to-shoulder facial picture, and a digital signature, which is then used to cross-check existing data in the National Identity Database.

What You Should Know About The NIN

  • Individuals are assigned their NIN after enrolling in the National Identity Database (NIDB). The NIN remains unique and cannot be reassigned or used by another person.
  • The NIN is retired upon in the event of an individual’s demise. The death certificate has to be presented.
  • The NIN contains all records about an individual in the database and serves as a verification tool.
  • All citizens, from birth onwards, are eligible to obtain their NIN.
  • Owners should securely guard their NIN and refrain from disclosing it to unauthorized individuals or platforms, such as social media. It should not be printed alongside contact details on business cards or other office stationery.
  • NIN enrolment is free of charge.
