I Was Asked To Pay 7000 Naira By NIN Agent To Correct Error From Their Database by Everest9(m): 9:46am On May 23
MY fellow Nairalanders, I will like you guys to look into this matter and air your views based on your experience.

I am unable to retrieve my SIM because MTN says that they are unable to view my image from the NIN (National Identification Number) database which I don't know why because I registered my NIN just like every other person.

On the 10th of May, which is this month, I lost my phone to pocket pickers along with my 2 main lines MTN and Airtel. I rushed to the nearest MTN office to do welcome back which I spent the whole day struggling with other subscribers who came for the same time or probably for other things like NIN registration to be allowed inside.

I later managed to get inside and did the welcome back, I waited for the right time to insect my SIM (2 hours) as recommended, when its time I inserted the SIM but nothing showed up. I used another number to call MTN 180 and they told me that the SIM retrieval failed, I asked why and they told me that the notice from their end was unable to view my NIN image.

I returned to the MTN office the following day to find out myself and they told me the same thing. However, I was asked to go NIM office which I did immediately. When I got to the office they told me that they don't have a network but asked me to state my issue which I did and they wrote it down and asked me to return to MTN on the 18th of May to re-do the welcome back that everything will be fine before 18th.

I went to the MTN office but after checking nothing worked, one of the MTN agents at the office decided to take charge of my case following my frequent visit to their office and decided to contact NIN on her own after a few conversations I was told to go home and return back on Thursday 20th May.

Before coming back I contacted the MTN agent to ask if the issue has been resolved and she told me to come and do it that she has got a green light that the issue has been resolved and I went and did the welcome back for the 2nd time and it failed again.

The bottom line now is that the welcome back has not been done and one of the NIM agents are requesting me to pay N7000 to correct the error.

My questions are:

1. Why will I pay NIM to correct the error from their own end which is not in any way my fault?
2. Why will MTN use that as an excuse knowing well that it's not my fault, at least they should allow NIN to sorts out their problems since the subscriber in question is present and every other detail matched.
3. Do you think it's right for me to pay the 7000 Naira for NIM to Fix the Issue?

Note: This is not about If I can afford it or not but I really don't get it, NIM didn't register my profile correctly and they want me to pay them to correct it, I don't really understand. If this is the case I don't see why Nigeria should be fighting crime because this is the real crime.

I can't buy a new line either, my NIN need to be okay before I can buy a new line, I even asked them if I can do the NIN registration again and they said NO

You are not to pay any money for it. Anyone collecting money for it is just trying to extort you. Be wise.

It depends on your location, registering a new sim is not a big deal if you have registered for NIN and don't have this type of issue that I am having now
