Is It True That Those Who Registered For BVN Automatically Have NIN? by dre11(m): 10:08pm On Dec 23, 2020
In a bid to beat the deadline for the Federal Government-ordered National Identity Number, thousands of Nigerians thronged National Identity Management Commission registration centres in disregard for coronavirus protocols.

The PUNCH reports that the Federal Government had declared on December 15, 2020, that after December 30, 2020, all SIMs that were not registered with valid NINs on the network of telecommunications companies would be blocked.

But on Monday, December 21, 2020, it extended the December 30, 2020 deadline following widespread opposition against the earlier announcement.

The government gave three weeks’ extension for subscribers with NIN from December 30, 2020, to January 19, 2021.

It also gave six weeks’ extension for subscribers without NIN from December 30, 2020, to February 9, 2021.

According to the NIMC, as of October, the total number of mobile network connections was 207.58 million, but currently, only 43 million Nigerians have NIN, thus 164 million telephone users are at the risk of being deactivated on December 31.

Amidst the rush to get registered, a viral message circulating on social media claims that those who had registered for Bank Verification Number already have NIN. Thus, they do not need to register for NIN.

“Good news: So many Nigerians have NIN and they are unaware. The truth is that everyone that did their BVN when it was introduced in 2014 has NIN automatically assigned to them.

“Just dial *346# with the same number you registered for BVN and retrieve your NIN. Don’t go to NIMC centres to queue, Covid19 is real,” the message read.

However, efforts by our correspondent to obtain a NIN following the procedure contained in the social media broadcast message failed.

When tried with GLO, MTN, and Airtel lines without a prior NIMC registration, a message prompted, saying, “Your data does not exist”.

Also, when contacted, spokesperson for NIMC, Kayode Adegoke, explained that NIMC must capture people’s data first before NIN could be allocated them.

While reacting to the viral broadcast message, Adegoke said, “The information is incorrect. We have linked our data with BVN. People need to come to our office to register. If you have not registered with NIMC, go to our centres and register.

“Truly, we have harmonised our data with some BVN data. But it is an incomplete process until you register with NIMC. if you don’t register with NIMC, efforts to generate your NIN will show record not found.

“For people not to have their lines cut off, they should disregard the message and register appropriately.”

VERDICT: It is FALSE that all those who had registered for BVN automatically have NIN allocated to them.

Please where is it found? In my app dashboard, it's only the BVN that is there. Can you share a screenshot (of course blur important details)

If Nigerians weren't funny people I wonder how just 40mil plus only registered for NIN something that's been going on for almost 10 years now and it's free for that matter... Now there's a new policy see the rush , crowd etc just like in the time of bvn Nigerians don't learn... Any NIMC employee using this opportunity to be corrupt and charging people 5k, 10k, to expedite there nin process may u lose your job and those willing to pay bribe after not doing what you should have done for years may you lose that money you want to use as bribe ..

If your bvn starts with 221 you are lucky,

just tell your account officer to give you a print out of your bvn,

You will find your NIN there

I don't even have the NIN but I'm not bothered, whatever they like they should do.
I remember the time they introduced NUBAN I didn't budge, although I lost some money less than 20k in oceanic bank.
If they want to disconnect me they can go ahead or they create a platform where people can get the NIN done online.

If you bvn number starts with 221 or 222, most likely you have nin, but then you must still visit any nimc centre for modifications.
