The National Identity Management Commission (NIMC) has now released a new NIMC mobile app to make it easy for people to get their National Identification card.
According to NIMC, the app has a good interface and any Nigerian who want to use it must have gotten his or her National Identification Number (NIN) ready or else access may be denied.
NIMC also said that you are allowed by the Nigeria Communications Commission (NCC) to link up to 7 devices with Nigerian – registered mobile numbers to your NIN.
How To Get and Use the NIMC mobile app
