NIN application guidelines for JAMB 2020 Registration

What is NIN?

NIN simply means National Identification Number. It consists of 11 non- intelligible numbers randomly chosen and assigned to an individual after the completion of enrolment into the National Identity Database (NIDB).

Once a NIN is assigned to an individual, it can never be reassigned, given or used by another person – that makes it unique in nature. In the case of the demise of an individual, his/her NIN is retired once a death certificate is presented to the Commission and the individual’s death is established.

The NIN is used to tie all records about an individual in the database and is also used to establish or verify his/her identity. All citizens and legal residents in Nigeria, from age zero (birth) and above are eligible to enrol for their NINs.

STEPS

  • Applicant will be verified to ascertain if he/she has ever enrolled using the NIN verification portal.
  • Applicant will be issued an enrolment form to fill if he/she has not enrolled before. OR the printed Barcode slip (for those who applied online) will be collected if the applicant had pre-enrolled earlier using the pre-enrolment service.
  • Applicant’s forms will be vetted by a NIMC Official to crosscheck the information filled on the form against the supporting document provided and to check for errors/mistake filled on the form. Note: applicants who cannot read nor write should be accompanied by a literate individual who can do the form filling for him/her.

The University of Ibadan (UI) has overtaken Covenant University (CU) as Nigeria’s best institution in the 2021 Times Higher Education’s (THE) rankings.

In 2019, Covenant University had retained its position as the best in Nigeria, according to THE’s 2020 report for the world university rankings.

This was after CU usurped UI in 2018.

However, in the 2021 rankings released on Wednesday, UI rose to the 401- 500 band while CU witnessed a drop from 2018’s 636 position to remain at top 1000.

Second on the list is the Lagos State University (LASU), which was placed between 501 and 600, while the University of Lagos (UNILAG) ranked between 601–800.

Also on the list is the University of Nigeria, Nsukka (UNN), and the Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU), both of which ranked on a figure exceeding 1000.

Below are the six Nigerian universities that made the list:

UI (401 – 500)

LASU (501 – 600)

UNILAG (601- 800)

Covenant University (801 – 1000)

UNN (1001+)

OAU (1001+)

THE had realised its rankings using 13 “carefully calibrated” performance indicators to provide comparisons “trusted by students, academics, university leaders, industry and governments.”

The University of Oxford claims top spot for the 5th consecutive year while the University of Cambridge dropped three places and was ranked at sixth in the world.
