The NIMC Mobile ID app includes a number of features that address the Nigerian identification crisis; nevertheless, let’s take a closer look at a few of them.

Since the MobileID app is a valid means of identification within the Federal Republic of Nigeria just like the physical National ID Card, your Passport, Driver’s license and/or Voter’s ID Card, you can present it as a legal means of identity to anyone in Nigeria.

However, here are a few things you should take into consideration before presenting your MobileID as means of identity.

Your ID must be verified on the spot.

You should not allow anybody to photocopy or scan your MobileID via a scanning machine.

If they wish to have a copy for their records, they should use their own copy of the NIMC MobileID (which means they have a NIN too), to scan the QR Code on the ID page. They can then log into the portal which will be available at https://myportal.nimc.gov.ng and print out the verification sheet.

Your ID is YOURS – you, therefore, reserve the right to know who verified your identity and when.
