FG urges citizens to promptly link NIN to SIM

The Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Isa Pantami, has urged citizens and legal residents to use the next few days to ensure that they complete the linkage of their SIM cards with the government-approved National Identification Number.

This was contained in a press release signed by the Director of Public Affairs, Nigerian Communications Commission, Dr. Ikechukwu Adinde, on Thursday.

Recall that the Federal Government, following tons of appeals from stakeholders, had approved an eventual extension of the NIN-SIM linkage deadline to the 31st of March, 2022 (today).

According to the statement, the commission has thus directed that the National Identity Management Commission mercifully offer round-the-clock enrollment service for the next few days, to enable prompt registration of Nigerians yet to comply with the directive.

The commission, on behalf of the Honourable Minister, the Executive Vice Chairman of the NCC, Umar Garba Danbatta, and the Director-General/CEO of NIMC, Aliyu Aziz, therefore, called on citizens to take advantage of this window of opportunity to complete the process of their NIN enrollment and verification within the next few days.
