SIM/NIN registration: FG extends deadline for third time

Again, the federal government has extended the deadline for linking the National Identity Numbers (NIN) to their mobile phone lines.

A spokesman for the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC), Ikechukwu Adinde, had told Punch on Tuesday morning that the development was authorised on Monday by the Minister of Communications and Digital Economy of Nigeria, Isa Pantami.

Mr. Adinde disclosed that the NIN-SIM integration deadline, which was previously moved from December 30 to January 19 and recently extended by three weeks to February 9, was now scheduled for April 6 — another eight-week extension.
