FG extends NIN SIM linkage to March

The Federal Government has extended the deadline for the NIN-Subscriber Identity Module data verification to March 31, 2022.

This was disclosed in a statement signed by the Director of Public Affairs, Nigerian Communications Commission, Dr Ike Adinde, and the Head of Corporate Communications, National Identity Management Commission, Mr Kayode Adegoke.

The statement was titled ‘NIN enrolments exceed 71 million as FG extends NIN-SIM verification to March 31, 2022’.

According to the agencies, the NIMC has issued over 71 million NINs with over 14,000 enrolment centres set up across the country so far.

 “The unprecedented growth in the National Identity Database to over 71 million unique NINs in such a short period, with about three to four SIMs linked to a NIN, reflects the concerted effort of the Federal Government, the Nigerian populace and legal residents, and this is truly commendable.

“Following the request by stakeholders, including citizens, legal residents and Nigerians in the diaspora, the Federal Government has extended the deadline of the exercise to the 31st of March, 2022.”
