How to Link National Identity Number (NIN) to MTN, 9Mobile, Glo and Airtel Number

Link NIN to mobile number

A few days ago, the Federal Government made it mandatory for every Nigerian to link their National Identity Number (NIN) to their mobile network within two weeks or face their numbers being blocked. Considering we are in the middle of a global pandemic and holiday period; one would think the government would give its citizens more time to carry out this exercise.

The good news is that local service providers in Nigeria have made it possible to link NIN to mobile numbers without having to visit their offices; while the bad news is that a lot of Nigerians do not have their NIN numbers yet.

In January 2019, the Federal Government made it mandatory for Nigerians to register for the National Identity Number. If you have not registered by now, follow our guide on how to register for NIMC in Nigeria and also check your status.
