How to ensure you receive your registration OTP – AMVCA 10

28 March 2024
Have you been attempting to register to vote on AMVCAs but have yet to receive an OTP code? Follow these simple steps to resolve the issue.

The 'Do Not Disturb' (DND) facility helps users have full or partial control over the messages they receive. Still, it could also hinder you from receiving your registration OTP, as DND restricts communication from third-party providers.

However, there's no need to fuss; here's how to unsubscribe from a DND list:

  • Check your DND status: Text STATUS to 2442 to determine if your DND is active or inactive.

Once confirmed, here's how to opt in/ out based on your Network provider: 

  1. For MTN users:  text STOP to 2442 to opt-in, and to opt-out text ALLOW to 2442.  
  2. For AIRTEL users: text OUT to 2442 to opt-in and START to 2442 to receive all messages. To entirely opt out of DND, text ALLOW to 2442. 
  3. For GLO/Globacom users: text ACTIVATE to 2442 to opt in, and to opt out, text CANCEL to 2442. 
  4. For 9Mobile users, text STOP to 2442 to opt in, and to opt-out, text START to 2442.  

Verify your status to ensure the process is complete, and then visit the AMVCA 10 Voting page to register again.
