    The Federal Government of Nigeria has granted Airtel Nigeria, a verification and enrolment license to register citizens in the ongoing National Identification Number (NIN) programme.

    The approval was contained in a notice issued recently by the National Identity Management Commission (NIMC).

    With the approval, Nigerians can now complete their NIN registration process at any accredited Airtel outlet nationwide.

    Commenting on this development, the Chief Executive Officer and Managing Director, Airtel Nigeria, Mr. Segun Ogunsanya, commended the Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Dr. Pantami, for expanding the registration footprints and for taking definitive steps to smoothen the NIN process as well as ease the burden on Nigerians.
