Hope PSBank, a subsidiary of Unified Payment Services Limited and a digital bank, says it has commenced free National Identification Number registration for Nigerians, including its customers, in all designated enrolment centres located in its regional offices across the country and head office in Lagos.

The Managing Director, Hope PSBank, Mr Ayotunde Kuponiyi, disclosed this during a press conference to announce the NIN enrollment exercise in Lagos on Thursday.

He said the bank was delighted to partner with the Federal Government through National Identity Management Commission on the NIN registration exercise, noting that this would afford Nigerians the opportunity to register and capture their biometrics seamlessly and quickly.

“We are committed to working with the Federal Government to ensure that every citizen enrolls for NIN as this would mean an easier identification process that had been lacking” Kuponiyi said.

He explained that Nigerians could register online through the bank’s platform and thereafter, visit the nearest enrollment center to capture biometrics.

The managing director said the bank had intensified effort to rapidly expand the number of enrollment centers as it was currently recruiting thousands of agents that would set up centers for enrolment all across the country.

“The process of onboarding as agent is very simple, prospective agents can log onto our website, and enroll first as an agent of Hope Payment Service Bank and then register to become agent for NIN registration,” he added.

While commending the Federal Government through the Ministry of Communication and Digital Economy for expanding and extending the registration footprints to the bank, he assured Nigerians of its readiness to make the registration easier through the platform.

According to Kuponiyi, once the registration was completed, the customer would receive a message which says ‘thank you for starting your registration, please visit our nearest center or outlet for your data capturing’.

He said the customer could view the authorised enrollment centers for biometric capture as contained in the message sent to him or her.

He also disclosed that the financial institution has six regional offices across the geopolitical zones of the country located in Kano, Adamawa, Anambra, Oyo, FCT, Lagos and Rivers State, with its head office in Victoria Island, Lagos.
