How to change name, others on NIN

According to the NIMC, Nigerians willing to change their date of birth must provide a digitalized National Population Commission (NPC) attestation certificate for those born before 1992 and a digitalized NPC birth certificate for those born after 1992.

For those changing names, applicants are to provide court affidavits, newspaper extracts, marriage certificates in the case of marital status, and other government identification cards.

Nigerians who are willing to change their address on their NIN must provide either a utility bill, tenancy agreement, or community leader attestation letter.

NIN holders interested in changing their phone numbers will only have to provide a police report.
