The NIN (National Identity Number) is one that is issued by the NIMC office. It serves the purpose of identification of the citizens of Nigeria. The NIN is an 11-digit detail that must be linked to your phone numbers. This link was made mandatory by the Federal Government. The digits are also very important for banking transactions and other operations that require identification. The details of your NIN are usually outlined on the NIN slip. In a case where you lose that slip, you can easily get your NIN by dialing certain codes with your phone number. However, in a case where you do not want to use your phone number, what do you do? In this article, we will be looking at the tips on how to retrieve NIN number without phone number.
