Shocking As NIMC declares NIN generated via BVN invalid

All those generating their National Identification Number (NIN) via their Bank Verification Number (BVN) are wasting their time, the National Identity Management Commission (NIMC) has said.

The commission in a series of tweets from its official Twitter handle @nimc_ng on Monday, January 12, 2021, announced that the NIN generated by the BVN can only be used after it has been updated at the NIMC Enrollment Center.

“NIN generated by the BVN can only be used after it has been updated at the NIMC enrollment Center,” the commission tweeted.

It also tweeted: “You MUST complete your NIN registration even if your BVN has generated a NIN.”
