“We are committed to working with the Federal Government to ensure that every citizen enrols for NIN as this would mean an easier identification process that had been lacking”, Kuponiyi said.
Moving further, the bank MD explained that Nigerians can register online through the bank’s platform and thereafter visit the nearest enrollment centre to capture biometrics.
He further stated that the bank has intensified effort to rapidly expand the number of enrollment centres as it is currently recruiting thousands of agents that will set up centres for enrollment all across the country.
According to him, “The process of onboarding as an agent is very simple, prospective agents can log on to our website (www.hopepsbank.com) and enrol first as an agent of Hope Payment Service Bank and then register to become an agent for NIN registration”.
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 the bank’s readiness to make the registration easier through the platform.
”Nigerians can register for NIN enrollment by filling the NIN form on Hope PSbank website (www.hopepsbank.com) or Mobile app, and then go to any of our centres for data capture by presenting just their phone numbers and means of identification. This will significantly reduce the waiting period at the capture centres,” he added.
