Subscribers Pardon As FG Extends NIN-SIM Linkage By One Month

Reprieve may have come the way of Nigerians, especially subscribers, who are yet to link their National Identity Number (NIN) to Subscribers Identification Module (SIM) cards, as the Federal Government yesterday extended the deadline for the registration, verification and linkage by additional one month.

The deadline was actually pegged for April 6 before the new announcement. The implication of this is that Nigerians who are yet to complete the NIN-SIM registration now have up till May 6 to do, failure of which their SIM cards could be blocked.

This is even as the already registered and verified NINs have exceeded 51 million. The new deadline date was announced in a joint statement signed by both the Director of Public Affairs at the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC), Dr. Ikechukwu Adinde, and Head of Corporate Communications, National Identity Management Commission (NIMC), Kayode Adegoke.
