Prospective JAMB candidates in Nigeria have been advised to still register for the National Identity Number, NIN, even though it has been suspended for this year’s UTME. 

Ondo state coordinator of the National Identity Management Commission, Mr. Akinwale Agbotoba gave the advice when he featured on a radio nigeria positive fm programme, “Guest of the Week”.

Mr. Agbotoba said it was pertinent for students to register as the National Identity Number would be used for JAMB registration in coming years.

The NIMC boss also called on other Nigerians who were yet to register for the NIN to visit designated areas for the exercise.

Mr. Agbotoba who said the NIN was important for official purposes, urged Nigerians to keep both their number and identity card properly urging them to dial *346# to retrieve their lost national identity number.
