Today we are looking at how to update your NIN as directed by NCC.
We have in the past few days read news updates where Nigerian Telecom companies have been directed by the NCC to halt the sales and  registration of new sim cards till all registered ones have been completely synced with the database.
So in order to save us the stress of going to queue at MTN Office, i have decided to share with you the steps i took in order to update my NIN With NCC.
