In line with the recent directive from the Federal government through the office of the Minister of Communications and Digital Economy mandating all service providers (Glo, Airtel, MTN and 9Mobile) to ensure that their subscribers link their National Identity Number (NIN) with their Sim cards within 2 weeks or have their Sim cards blocked, MTN has provided an easy way to do that without visiting their office.
You can actually do this from the comfort of your home.
Below are the steps you need to take:
- Open the link https://mtnonline.com/nim on your phone browser
When the page opens, Enter your first name, Last name and middle name (if any) in the same way you registered your Sim card.
Input the MTN phone number that you intend to link with your NIN
Now, enter your NIN (You can dial *346# using the line you used for your National ID Card registration to check for your NIN)
Enter your email address
An OTP would be sent to the line, enter the OTP and then click on submit.
That is all, you would now have to wait for approval and linking. Just ensure that the name used is the name that you used during the Sim registration.
Please share this information because of other MTN users.
