FG extends NIN-SIM linkage by eight weeks

The Federal Government has further extended the ongoing National Identification Number and Subscriber Identity Module integration exercise.

This was disclosed by Director, Public Affairs, Nigerian Communications Commission, Ikechukwu Adinde as directed by the Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Isa Pantami.

The new deadline is April 6,2021.

The Federal Government declared On December 15, 2020 that after December 30, 2020, all SIMs that were not registered with valid NINs on the network of telecommunications companies would be blocked.

It later extended the December 30, 2020 deadline following widespread opposition against the earlier announcement and gave three weeks’ extension for subscribers with NIN from December 30, 2020 to January 19, 2021.

It also gave six weeks’ extension for subscribers without NIN from December 30, 2020 to February 9, 2021, but many organisations had called for further deadline extension or outright suspension of the NIN registration process.
