Invalid Format & Unable To Verify NIN

If you are getting an Invalid Format or Failed to Verify NIN, then the following guide will be of help to you.

  • NIN must be length = 11
  • Make sure your NIN is correctly linked with your number
  • You can use any SIM Card So long it is registered with your name
  • Do not use Sim registered with another name
  • Make sure the NIN Name Matches the name on your SIM Card
  • Ensure to have N100 or above airtime on your Phone
  • Make sure you Typed the Correct NIN Number
  • Did I put more than one Space between your NIN and my NIN Number?

Someone Wrote: Please, I’m trying to get my Profile Code and I already have my NIN. I’m using Etisalat and the response I got was “Failed to verify NIN”. Then I was told not to use 9mobile.  I was advised to use my mum’s MTN SIM since I have no other Sim, but still getting the same response.

My original SIM was registered by her in her name though and I was wondering if it could affect my getting the Profile code since it’s her name on the SIM and not mine.

If you followed all the steps above, Jamb should send you Some Code. After getting the code, the next thing is getting an E-PIN. NIN Must be length = 11.

How To Avoid SMS Issues Creating Profile

  • Don’t add a comma between NIN & NIN Number.
  • Don’t add space after your NIN Number
  • 50 Naira will be deducted from your Sim. Make sure you have above N50 Naira airtime on your Mobile phone before sending the SMS.
  • One Phone number can be used by one candidate only. Don’t share the same number with your brother or sister. They should get their own sim and send their own message.
  • Make sure your phone number is linked with NIN before you send NIN to 55019.
  • Don’t use your dad, mom or brother’s phone number.

Generated Profile Code Names

Another possible error message when trying to generate a Jamb profile code is, “Already generated Profile Code Names Does Not match Names you enrolled with NIMC.

It simply means the Name you used to register your SIM Card is different from the name you used to register NIN.

Your profile name is your SIM Card name. It should match your NINC name, i.e the name you entered while enrolling NIN should match with your SIM Registration name.

  • Did you register your SIM yourself?
  • Are you using someone’s SIM Card?
  • Are you sure you are using your NIN Number?

Some persons claimed that they were able to register Jamb profile even when the name on their NIN Slip and SIM Card is different. But for most persons, they get rejected.
