NIMC Partner

in the UK

Skylab FinTech is an official NIMC (National Identity Management Commission ) partner in the UK.

Their service, i-NIN, provides a number of services to the Federal government of Nigeria, notably, facilitating the enrolling and processing of National Identity Numbers for Nigerian Citizens.

National Identity Number

What is NIN?

The National Identification Number (NIN) is a sequence of 11 non-intelligible numbers randomly chosen and assigned to a Nigerian Citizen at the completion of enrolment.

Once a NIN is assigned to an individual, it can never be reassigned, given or used by another person – that makes it unique in nature.

The NIN is used to tie all civil records about an individual in the Nigerian government’s digital database and to establish or verify their identity.

As a Nigerian citizen, the NIN is absolutely essential. You literally cannot do anything without it.
