The hassles encountered by Nigerians in registering for the National Identity Number (NIN) were further reduced on Tuesday as Globacom launched an app that makes it possible for people to choose a day, time and location convenient for them to undergo the process.
According to Globacom, the app, tagged Appointment Manager, was “unveiled to help our numerous subscribers and Nigerians in general to reduce the stress involved in the NIN registration process”.
The Company added that, through the utilization of the app, customers will go through the process hassle-free, which saves them time and also ensures the registration is done in a safe and Covid-19-compliant environment, with fewer people in attendance.
To use the app, Glo said the customer will “Enter the URL https://ninappt.gloworld.com/ on any browser and enter phone number in this format: 08050000000. This will be followed by clicking on the date icon to select available dates for the month, followed by selection of desired state and shop. Next is the selection of the desired time to be followed by entrance of the number provided by the app to ensure the customer is indeed a human being, after which he or she will click on Submit.”
The company added that, “Customers will then receive an SMS notification with an ID, Scheduled date and shop to visit which he will present at the shop”.
Globacom which urged its subscribers to make utmost use of the app for the registration, also advised those who are yet to link their NIN with their mobile numbers to text their NIN to 109, adding that they can also dial *109*NIN# to submit their NIN or call 109 to update their NIN via voice call.
