FG Announces Additional Requirement To Effect Date Of Birth Change In NIN

The Federal Government on Sunday announced that Nigerians applying to change their date of birth on the National Identification Number (NIN) database will now be required to provide an electronic civil registration and vital statistics system, e-CRVS certificate from the National Population Commission, NPC.

The National Identity Management Commission, NIMC, disclosed this in new guidelines for date of birth change released through its X handle.

In addition to the birthday certificate requirement, the Commission said copies of other valid documents, such as identification and application letter for modification, will now be addressed to the Commission’s Director General.

Recall that before the new guideline, only an affidavit and the payment of N15,000 are required to modify age and other modifications on the NIN system.

According to the Commission, with the new guidelines, date of birth modification can only be done once in a lifetime and only at NIMC enrolment centres.

It warned that its licensed agents are not allowed to modify dates of birth and other forms of change.

The development comes barely a week after telecommunications operators in Nigeria announced February 28, 2024, as the deadline to disconnect Subscriber Identification Modules, SIMs, not connected to the National Identity Number.
