The Federal Government of Nigeria has again extended the deadline for Nigerians to link their SIM cards to their National Identity Number, NIN.
The FG, on Wednesday, January 20, made it official that deadline has been shifted to February 9.
Mobile network operators (MNOs) disclosed this in a press statement released. The statement read in part;
“We have received formal confirmation from the NCC that President Muhammadu Buhari has graciously approved the extension of the deadline for subscribers with NIN to link it to their SIM registration data from January 19 to February 9, 2021.
To ensure that we utilise the extension period judiciously, we urge all telecom subscribers who have a NIN to link it to their SIM cards through available channels as soon as possible. Those yet to enroll are advised to visit www.nimc.gov.ng for a list of enrolment centres close to them.”
