Before the NCC’s directive to disconnect all clients who are not registered with their National Identity Numbers (NIN), the telecommunications service provider had been asked to do so within two weeks.
By the end of the year, any customers who have not registered with NIN would be unable to use their mobile lines.
How to Link Nin to MTN
The shortcode (*785#) provided for MTN customers by MTN Network can be used to link your NIN Number to your MTN mobile number. MTN’s *785# is by far the best and simplest method for connecting your NIN to your MTN number.
To link your phone number to MTN’s online services, follow these steps:
- Visit MTN’s NIN site online.
- Your First Name, Last Name, Middle Name (optional), Phone Number, NIN, and Email Number must be entered.
then “submit” is the final step.
Mobile Short Code
Your 11-digit National Identification Number can be linked to your mobile phone by dialing *785# and then entering it when prompted.
- Send after entering the 11-digit National Identification Number. You’ll see a message saying “your NIN has been successfully received” in a pop-up window.
Wait a few minutes and try again with the linking if you get an error
What is the Code to Link NIN to MTN
The code to link your nin to mtn is *785#.
Why is My Nin Invalid?
As a result of the BVN record synchronization with the National Identity Database, you will not be able to use the mobile app for the NIMC and your NIN-SIM integration will be invalid.
