NIN Generated By BVN Is Not Useful – NIMC

The National Identity Management Commission (NIMC), has warned Nigerians that the National Identity Number (NIN) generated by the Bank Verification Number (BVN) is not useful.

NIMC in a tweet, stated that the BVN-generated NIN can only be used after it has been updated at the NIMC enrollment Center. You can check out the approved NIMC enrollment centres.


If your NIN was generated due to the BVN record harmonization with the National Identity Database, you will not have Access to the NIMC mobile app and your NIN – SIM integration will be invalid.

Kindly visit an enrollment center to complete your NIN registration.
