This was disclosed in a statement signed by the commission’s spokesperson, Ikechukwu Adinde, on Wednesday.

The agency which said the current linkage of SIM registration records with the NIN was aimed at enhancing general safety and helping the government to plan for national development, said the clarification became necessary as many subscribers had become jittery that their lines might be disconnected over NIN registration.

Adinde advised the public to ignore speculations of mass disconnection being circulated in some sections of the media and also added that the publications “are based on the erroneous assumption that for every network or SIM connection, there is one unique human subscriber”.

The federal government recently directed mobile telecoms operators to disconnect all mobile lines which are not be linked to NINs.

The directive has led to chaos as subscribers across the nation, who are yet to do so, scramble to resister for NIN before the deadline.
