MTN Nigeria is supporting the federal government by enrolling people for the National Identification Number (NIN) registration at its service centres. The newly introduce initiative is expected to increase the capacity of NIN enrolment services provided across states.
MTN believes that the initiative would support a reliable and sustainable national identity management system for the country. This will allow the delivery of multiple benefits to the telecoms industry and the nation at large, whilst supporting national economic planning and enhance security, governance and service delivery at all levels.

MTN also deployed an onsite appointment booking system to limit indoor crowding at these service centres with plans to launch an online version ongoing. This will help instil standard COVID-19 safety protocols at locations where enrolment services are introduced.
The NIN enrolment licence from the Nigerian Identity Management Commission (NIMC) for MTH Nigeria was approved in December. Ever since, it has begun NIN enrolment at some of its service centres across Nigeria. This has since, gave way for more people to enrol for the service and reduced the crowd at NIMC centres.

Ugonwa Nwoye, the Chief Customer Relations Officer for MTN Nigeria, said:
“We seek the continued patience and understanding of our esteemed customers and the public as we continue scaling up capacity.
“We are working closely with NIMC and the Ministry of Communications and Digital Economy to expand the number of enrolment centres, and ensure that they provide an access point for as many Nigerians as possible. This involves close collaboration between other Mobile Network Operators (MNOs) and NIMC to ensure certification and technical integration is seamless while offering maximum possible protection from COVID-19.
“Ensuring that every Nigerian has access to a location where they can enrol in the NIN system, while simultaneously registering their SIM cards, is critical to the expansion and deepening of our digital economy, and we are committed to collaborating with the government in their efforts to achieve this.” He added.
