SIMS: NIN DEADLINE STANDS AS NCC AWAITS GOVT’S ADVICE

Written by on January 15, 2021

THE NIGERIAN COMMUNICATIONS COMMISSION (NCC) SAYS IT IS STILL AWAITING THE ADVICE OF THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT AS REGARDS THE DEADLINE FOR THE INTEGRATION OF SUBSCRIBER IDENTIFICATION MODULES (SIMS) WITH VALID NATIONAL IDENTITY NUMBERS (NINS).

IT ALSO STATED THAT THE EARLIER ANNOUNCED DEADLINES WERE STILL IN FORCE DESPITE THE CLAMOUR FOR EXTENSION OR OUTRIGHT SUSPENSION OF THE REGISTRATION PROCESS.

CALLS FOR DEADLINE EXTENSION WERE MAINLY DUE TO THE LARGE CROWDS THAT GATHER DAILY AT THE VARIOUS OFFICES OF THE NATIONAL IDENTITY MANAGEMENT COMMISSION.

THE DIRECTOR, PUBLIC AFFAIRS, NCC, IKECHUKWU ADINDE, TOLD OUR CORRESPONDENT IN ABUJA THAT NO DEADLINE EXTENSION HAD BEEN APPROVED.
