How To Link Your NIN To GLO, MTN, Airtel, and 9Mobile Lines

Following the directive delivered by the Nigerian communication commission (NCC)  On Tuesday the 15th of December, Nigerians are now mandated to pair their NIN (Nigerian Identity Number) with their telecom lines. This article teaches you how to get it done, as we explore a comprehensive tutorial on how to link your NIN to GLO, MTN, Airtel, and 9Mobile, which are pretty much the major telecom providers in Nigeria.

The steps to linking your NIN may vary with the different telecommunication networks; however, they all share a common trait, allowing their subscribers to pair their NIN remotely without having to visit any customer care center or call a customer care agent. The process has been designed across all telecom networks to reduce the difficulty to the barest minimum.

  1. Launch the dialer on your mobile phone
  2. Dial *346# to reveal your eleven digits NIN number.
