Telecommunications company, Globacom, has announced the commencement of registration of Nigerians for the National Identification Number at its Gloworld outlets across the country.
In a statement on Friday, Globacom revealed that it has deployed devices which are in tandem with Nigerian Identity Management Commission standards and begun registration exercise in several Gloworld shops, while plans are underway to start the process in other retail outlets in other parts of the country.
The company said it secured an approval licence from the NIMC to start the enrolment of Nigerians who have not yet registered.
The NIN registration has commenced the exercise in several Gloworld outlets, while arrangements are being concluded for retail outlets that are not live yet for NIN enrolment to also begin soon.
Glo said: “Subscribers who have secured their NIN but have not linked 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 reiterated its commitment to the provision of seamless experience for its subscribers while promising continued collaboration with Government in its bid to create a secure and sustainable communications industry in Nigeria.
