The National Identity Management Commission (NIMC) has
unveiled the fees that Nigerians will have to pay to modify their data on their
National Identification Number (NIN).


Recall that NIMC recently announced that corrections can be
made to name, date of birth and phone numbers incorrectly registered with their
NIN on a newly launched mobile application.


Before now, Nigerians who wanted to modify their data on NIN
have had to go through a difficult process, besieging NIMC’s offices


NIMC, upon launch of the app, did not announced fees for the
modification of data until seven days later amid complaints from users about
technical glitches on the mobile app.


NIMC set different fees for the modification of specific
self-service options for the modification of data – name, age, date of birth,
phone number and email address – on the NIN.


The Commission wrote on its X account, “Good news!!! You no
longer have to go to a NIN enrolment center to modify your NIN record. You can
modify your date of birth, name, address, email, and phone number on the NIMC
SELF-SERVICE APP. What are you waiting for???”

How to modify your NIN data using the NIMC mobile app:

name and email address
