If you’re having issues while sending NIN to 55019, don’t panic. The solution is in this blog. Below are list of JAMB profile creation problem and their solution.
- Insufficient airtime
- New SIM
- Blocked SIM
- Wrong NIN
- Invalid character entry
- Connection issues
You should at least have up to N50 to N100 airtime. This is because there’s a service fee charged, when sending with USSD code, or as a text message. Once your airtime amount is less than N50, you won’t be able to perform such activity.
When you buy a new SIM, it could take a while before you will be able to make use of the SIM to send either text message, or sending USSD code. So, make sure you use either an old SIM, or you wait for the new SIM to activate successfully before making use of it.
When a SIM card is blocked, it won’t have any network. Kindly check if your SIM is active enough to carry out SIM activities. You can also, visit the nearest store of your service provider to rectify the issue.
Invalid character entry
Don’t use an invalid format to send using either USSD code, or text message. Make sure the spaces are there.
If you’re having trouble sending a message to 55019, connection issues can be a barrier to it. Check if you have network. If you don’t have, then you need to wait until the network is back, or you can alternatively use your second personal SIM.
If you’re not up to 16 years, you won’t be able to get a profile code. This is because you’re underage. Make sure your date of birth is correct while registering your NIN.
Finally, if you’re having JAMB profile creation problem, contact NIN through their email firstname.lastname@example.org to rectify any issue related with them. Also, you can contact JAMB at their office, or visit JAMB support for JAMB related issues.
