About the MWS NIMC App

The MWS NIMC Mobile ID app is owned by the National Identity Management Commission (NIMC) and the Federal Ministry of Communications and Digital Economy on behalf of the Federal Government of Nigeria.

To use the app, you need a National Identification Number (NIN) issued by the National Identity Management Commission or one of its accredited agents and a Mobile Number. This means you must have previously enrolled for NIN before you can use the app.

More so, you may link up to 6 extra Mobile Numbers to your NIN and easily comply with the requirements of the NCC.

In other words, if you have lost your sim card and would like to retain the line, kindly walk into any office of your network provider and request for a Welcome Back. However, a subscriber applying for a welcome back must present a NIN verified by NIMC.
