The National ID is one of four valid means by which a citizen of the Federal Republic of Nigeria can identify his/her-self, and is a property of the National Identification Management Commission (NIMC). The NIN, meaning National Identification Number, is the unique code attached to each citizen. In most cases, the NIN is most important because this is the exact thing that links the individual to the NIMC system. This article will look at how to check your National Identification Number (NIN) using your mobile phone conveniently (USSD Code). To check your NIN on any SIM (MTN, Airtel, Glo, 9mobile) on your phone, dial *346#.
