Most jamb candidate face some difficulty on how they can check their NIN number, some ended up in soup by paying huge amount to some cyber cafe and this is totally wrong idea for all youth.
And funniest part is that most people don’t know that the NIN is just 11 digit and this digit is totally different, no matter how it maybe it’s always unique and it stand as your “NATIONAL IDENTITY NUMBER”.
Early this year, Jamb unfold that they will be using this NIN number for all their candidate, although they later change their policy of which it’s not compulsory.
To speak the truth, don’t you think that some organisations required this NIN before they can confirm you are legit. For example if you want to open bank account in any bank, they will surely open it for you. But your account will not be on standard level.
I mean you will be unable to deposit #300,000 to it and your daily withdraw will be limit to #20,000 per day, this rule strike on some students account. Because they are unable to provide quality ID card like NIN or others card.
Before you can have standard bank account, bank will request for any of your valid ID card. So it’s highly recommend to have one right now, because of future purpose.
