HOUSE ON NCC DIRECTIVE ON SIM REGISTRATION

The House of representatives has urged the Nigerian communications commission to extend to ten weeks, the submission of national identity number, for the update of SIM registration.


The matter of urgent public importance from house minority leader Ndudi Elumelu noted that the two week period, effective from 16th to 31st December 2020, issued to telecom network subscribers to submit their NIN numbers or risk being disconnected would cause untold hardship to millions of Nigerians.
While acknowledging the importance of the exercise which borders on security concerns, the house advised that subscribers should be sensitized to prevent being exploited in the rush to comply with the directive.
The House resolved that the deadline for updating the SIM registration process be shifted to 28th February 2021.
