Nigeria’s telecommunication giant, 9mobile, has commenced the National Identification Number (NIN) registration exercise in select Experience Centres in Lagos and Abuja.

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 enrollment 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 include 43, Adeola Odeku, Victoria Island, Lagos; 31, Marina Road, Marina, Lagos and Royal Plaza, 23 Road by 402 junction, Festac Town, Lagos. Others are 9mobile Regional Office, no 8 Kikuyi close, off Aminu Kano, Wuse 2, Abuja and Plot 1774, Adetokunbo Ademola Crescent. Wuse 2, Abuja.
