Nigerian Government has announced the extension of the ongoing National Identification Number and Subscriber Identity Module SIM integration exercise to April 6.
In a bid to ensure telecoms subscribers are not deactivated, the ongoing National has been extended to April 6.
Ikechukwu Adinde, Director, Public Affairs, at the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC), who disclosed this on Tuesday, said the extension was conveyed by Isa Pantami, the Minister of Communications and Digital Economy.
Adinde said Pantami conveyed the message during the meeting of the Ministerial Taskforce on NIN-SIM registration which held on Monday, Feb. 1.
The extension is to give people that have not linked their NIN and Sim card time to do so.
Pantami encouraged Nigerians to take advantage of the extension to fully participate in the process and follow the safety guidelines at all the NIN enrolment centres.
