9mobile, Nigeria’s customer centric telecom company, has announced the commencement of the National Identification Number (NIN) registration exercise in its select Experience Centres in Lagos and Abuja.
The development follows the Federal Government’s approval granting telecoms the license for NIN enrolment to ease the pressure of large crowd turnout at the various enrollment centers of the Nigeria Identity Management Commission (NIMC).
Confirming this, the Chief Commercial Officer, 9mobile, Stjepan Udovicic stated: “As Nigeria’s customer champion in this industry, 9mobile always seeks opportunities to collaborate with regulators and other stakeholders on initiatives that will enable Nigerians to achieve their full potential. We pride ourselves as a responsible corporate citizen, and we are always ready to go the extra mile for our esteemed customers and all Nigerians in general. That is why we are pleased to announce the commencement of NIN enrolment at select 9mobile Experience Centers duly approved by NIMC to help expand registration access to Nigerians ahead of the new deadline set by the Government for the exercise.”
According to Udovicic, 9mobile Experience Centres offering NIN registration in Lagos include those located at Victoria Island, Marina, and Festac Town. Others are 9mobile Regional Office in Wuse 2, and sub-office also in Wuse 2, Abuja.
He urged customers and intending enrolees to observe all recommended guidelines for limiting the spread of Covid-19, including wearing of face masks and maintaining social/physical distancing, stressing that strict observance will be fully enforced at the experience centers.
The 9mobile CCO assured that 9mobile was working on expanding the NIN registration centers to make them accessible to even more Nigerians very soon.
