In a move likely to offer phone users in the country relief from difficulties associated with obtaining the National Identification Number (NIN), national telecommunications operator, Globacom, has opened up its offices for people to walk in and do the registration.
The company said in a statement released in Lagos on Friday that several of its Gloworld outlets have begun the NIN registration after it obtained the requisite licence from the Nigerian Identity Management Commission (NIMC).
To ensure a smooth exercise for phone users, Globacom said it had installed devices aligned with NIMC standards and had commenced the exercise in several Gloworld outlets, adding that arrangements are being concluded for retail outlets that are not live yet for NIN enrolment to also begin soon.
“We are committed to ensuring that customers have uninterrupted experience on our network and we will continue to support government’s efforts to create a secure and sustainable industry”, the statement read.
