The National Identity Number (NIN) is compulsory for students who intend to register for the 2023 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) and Direct Entry (DE).




However, many students have been left stranded as their NINs do not work while trying to complete their registration ahead of the exams.


For students experiencing this difficulty, the National Identity Management Commission (NIMC) has revealed what to do to resolve it.



The commission has released a statement asking affected students to send an email to get the issue resolved.


How to correct date of birth


NIMC also explained the processes involved if students or any other person wants to change their dates of birth.


N15,000 Remita payment receipt

Birth certificate and 2 other documents showing the DOB

Court affidavit

Application to the DG/CEO

Kindly visit any NIMC centre to apply for modification.


What you need to know about NIN tokenization and how to use it


In another related development, the federal government, through the National Identity Management Commission (NIMC), has introduced virtual National Identification Number (NIN) tokens known as “Tokenization”.



A statement by the commission explained that the NIN Tokenisation is to protect people’s data privacy through the use of an encrypted, coded version of the NIN instead of the actual NIN which is used for everyday transactions.



The major goal of the NIN Tokenization, as simply explained by the NIMC’s director-general, Engr Aliyu Aziz, is to protect the personal information of the NIN holders. The use of tokens instead of the actual NIN will eliminate or reduce incidences of illegal retrieval, usage, transfer, and storage of NIN, the NIMC DG noted.
