MTN Nigeria has said it is increasing its capacity to provide enrolment services for the National Identity Number (NIN) registration across its customer interaction touchpoints in Nigeria, rural locations inclusive.
This, the company said, is in demonstration of its commitment to support the Federal Government and the Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Dr. Isa Ali Pantami’s efforts to drive the NIN registration.
It will be recalled that following the approval of its NIN enrolment licence from the Nigerian Identity Management Commission (NIMC) in December, MTN Nigeria commenced enrolment for NIN at a limited number of its service centres across Nigeria.
According to the company, this forms part of its broader commitment to roll out thousands of enrolment devices across all geo-political zones as earlier stated.
“We seek the continued patience and understanding of our esteemed customers and the public as we continue scaling up capacity,” said Ugonwa Nwoye, the Chief Customer Relations Officer for MTN Nigeria.
“We are working closely with NIMC and the Ministry of Communications and Digital Economy to expand the number of enrolment centres, and ensure that they provide an access point for as many Nigerians as possible.”
MTN stated that it is working to ensure certification and technical integration is seamless while offering maximum possible protection from COVID-19 for both its staff, partners and customers.
It added that it is collaborating with the government in their efforts in ensuring that every Nigerian has access to a location where they can enrol in the NIN system.
