According to the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) mandate, all Nigerians are required to link their National Identification Number (NIN) with their sim cards, just like how we linked our BVN number to our bank accounts.
If you are not too sure if you had earlier linked your NIN to your sim or not, then follow this step to confirm the NIN status on your sim.
All you have to do is dial *346# and reply with 1.
If your NIN is already linked with your sim, you’ll be shown your NIN number, otherwise you’ll be asked to enroll for your NIN by visiting any nearest NIMC office closest to you.
