This comes as the NCC has made it clear that the deadline for linking their National Identity Numbers to their Subscriber Identity Modules, which was set for October 31, will be strictly enforced.

 

 

Nigerians without NIN will soon be denied the opportunity to obtain driver’s licenses and passports.

 

 

The commission announced this at the NCC Digital Signature radio program, which broadcast the second episode of Telecoms Consumer Town Hall on Radio (live on a Lagos radio station) to highlight the benefits of NIN-SIM integration.

 

 

“The NCC has reminded and urged telecoms consumers to link their NINs with their SIMs before the Federal Government’s deadline of October 31, 2021,” the statement stated.

 

“Director, Public Affairs, NCC, Dr Ikechukwu Adinde, asked Nigerians to take advantage of the extension of the NIN-SIM integration process until October 31, 2021, to enrol with NIMC, receive their NINs, and link them to their SIMs,” the statement continued.

 

 

“People without NIN will soon be refused important services that play vital roles in their life, including the purchase of a driving license and passport,” Adinde warned.

 

 

“On the benefits of the NIN-SIM integration, Adinde said the exercise will significantly enhance national security because NIN is the primary identity for Nigerians, stressing that the NIN-SIM database will enhance citizens’ access to government services, in line with the Federal Government’s commitment to ensure that Nigeria deploys technology to improve service delivery,” according to the statement.
