How to link your NIN to your sim

H

The Federal Government of Nigeria had last week ordered telecommunications companies to deactivate telephone lines of subscribers who failed to link their phones to their NIN within two weeks.

As of October, the total number of mobile network connections was 207.58 million, but currently, only 43 million Nigerians have NIN, thus 164 million telephone users are at the risk of being deactivated on December 31.

But on Monday evening, the Federal Government bowed to pressure by extending the deadline to January 19, 2021 for subscribers with NIN and February 9 for those without NIN.
