How to Link My AIRTEL Sim With NIN Using My Phone 2022

It has become the norm to link the National Identification Number with your Mobile Number, as stated by the Government of Nigeria. The National Identity Management Commission in conjunction with the Major Players in Telecommunication Industry decided to make it easy for mobile phone users across the Nation.


This was done in order to prevent the disconnection of the majority of the citizens, from the “real world” & the spread of the COVID-19 Pandemic due to long queues at registration centers.


Being a stakeholder in the industry, AIRTEL can not be disregarded on issues as this, and it has also worked to provide a way that is easy for its users to do as directed by the Government.
