JAMB important update on sending NIN to 55019

This is to inform all 2021 UTME candidates that the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has provided an update with regard to profile code creation by sending NIN to 55019.

According to the board, candidates are to note that contrary to the earlier release, candidates can send their NIN from any SIM of their choice provided the SIM has not been used by another candidate to register for UTME/DE in the past.

This means that candidates can use any SIM of their choice to send their NIN to 55019 whether the SIM belongs to them or not. However, they must ensure that no one has ever used the SIM to register for JAMB whether in the past or in the present, and also ensure the SIM you are using has been registered with NIMC.

We believe the reason for this is because JAMB has discovered that some candidates are having issues getting their profile codes due to the poor network of some of the telecommunication companies.

If you have been having issues sending your NIN to 55019, read our post on Solutions To Issues In Sending NIN To 55019

We also advise you use another person’s phone number that has been linked to NIN to send the message if you have been trying with your and it has not been working but please ensure that the phone number has never been used by anyone for JAMB registration. You can try phone numbers from different networks. Hopefully, one will work for you.

The right way to send the message to create profile code

Open “Create Message” on your Phone and Type the word ‘NIN then space and then type your 11 digit NIN number and send it to 55019. For example, NIN 00123456789 (Replace 00123456789 with the numbers in your NIN Slip.) the message should be sent to 55019.

    it’s not our fault please we need to be considered

    I enrolled since January
    please you can’t ignore us
    help us
    Do something about this

  46. Pls what of those who don’t have nin

  47. Please I paid for Jamb e-pin via Remita, the payment was successful but the pin was not delivered.
    Is there any way to retrieve jamb pin?

    • It will surely be sent to you it might just take hours cause of network

      • I tried sending my NIN to 55019 and it has gone through and I’ve gotten my profile code but I used the same sim I used last year and was given the same profile code as last year’s. Hope this is okay and won’t affect my registration

    • You can track it using your transaction reference number.

    • Be patient about that sir, when I bought my pin from remitta it took 4 days before it was delivered.

    Notify me of new post on education

  49. Yes precisely. As long as that particular sim you’re using is registered with a NIN Number and it haven’t been used to send any message to 55019 in the past you are good to go.

  50. Pls what about profile creation on the jamb site, I have been try to create a jamb profile for days now but it keeps saying the page doesn’t exist or has been removed, whenever it get to email confirmation

  51. Does that means that the sim i want to use must be link to my mothers nin or my own nin before sendin my nin to 55019?
