Enrollees can update the details related to their NIN data as a result of corrections or changes/modifications.
Modifications cannot be made by proxy. The applicant has to visit a NIMC Enrolment Centre (at any location most convenient to him/her).
Fields filled on the enrolment form, for which details can be modified include ‘name’, ‘address’, ‘phone number’, etc.
For example, for change of name, the applicant needs to provide clippings of any newspaper publication indicating his/her new name along with a court affidavit and teller for REMITA payment of N500.
Modifications to some of an enrollee’s captured data, such as ‘date of birth’, are restricted.
The first 5 steps used for Updatable Fields above also apply here.
After all the applicant’s forms and documents have been verified, the enrolment officer submits them for restricted modification approval to the following NIMC officials in order of hierarchy: Enrolment Centre Supervisor > State Coordinator > Regional Head > General Manager Operations > General Manager IT/IDD.
Given all the necessary approvals, the change is effected at the backend and the applicant is notified via the Enrolment Centre where his/her application was initiated. Another NIN slip is printed for the applicant with the corrected data.
