Federal Government Extends Deadline For NIN Update

The Federal Government has extended the deadline for the provision of National Identification Number by telecommunication service subscribers.

NIN Update

Recall that NCC last week ordered telecommunications companies to within two weeks suspend phone subscribers who have no NIN.

In a statement by the Federal Ministry of Communications and Digital Economy titled, ‘Extension of Registration Period and Cancellation of USSD and Verification Fees, it stated that the Federal Government has now extended the deadline to update NIN by three weeks.

“Three (3) weeks extension for subscribers with NIN from 30th December, 2020 to 19th January, 2021; and

“Six (6) weeks extension for subscribers without NIN from 30th December, 2020 to 9th February, 2021”, the statement read.

The statement further stated, “NIMC has provided strategies to enable citizens attend the registration in full compliance with Covid-19 protocols – particularly the use of facemasks which remains mandatory and maintenance of social distancing.”
