NIN Verification Nigeria NIMC

Share This Post

Over 107 million Nigerians are already enrolled in the National Identification Number (NIN) program, with the National Identity Management Commission (NIMC) aiming to reach 200 million by 2025. This surge, coupled with the mandatory use of the National Identification Number Regulations, Gazette 2017, makes NIN verification important for various businesses operating in Nigeria.

What is the National Identification Number (NIN)?

A National Identification Number (NIN) is a unique 11-digit number issued by the National Identity Management Commission (NIMC) to every registered Nigerian citizen and legal resident.

Why is NIN Verification Important for Businesses?

  • You can confirm the authenticity of a customer’s identity, mitigating the risk of fraudulent activities like identity theft, fraud and money laundering.
  • Using the NIN to verify customer identities during onboarding saves time and creates a more seamless experience.
  • Avoid potential penalties associated with non-compliance with KYC regulations like the NIN Gazette, CBN’s NIN Mandate and data privacy laws like NDPR (Nigeria Data Protection Regulation).
