According to the report, so far, a total of 47.8 million NINs have been collected by the mobile operators.

At an average of three to four SIMs per subscriber, this means many millions will be linked up before the deadline in February 2021.

The Minister urged the technical team to fast-track the processes so that the project is delivered soonest.

The Technical Committee drew attention to the App developed by the Federal Government which allows subscribers to link up to a maximum of seven (7) SIMs to their NIN.

 

The Minister reminded Nigerians to secure and protect their NINs, urging subscribers to desist from selling their NINs or allowing others to use their NINs for registration.

“For any act committed with the SIM, good or bad, it will be officially traced and attached to the NIN owner,” the Minister warned.
