The Federal Government on Monday extended the deadline for linking the National Identity Card number with the SIM card registration by three weeks.
Subscribers with NIN now have till January 19 to register while those who are yet to register for national identity card now have six weeks to register for the linking.
Earlier today, large number of people, mainly youths, stormed the office of National Identity Management Commission, NIMC, Alausa, Ikeja, Lagos, in an attempt to register for NIN.
Recall that the Federal Government had threatened that SIM cards not linked to NIN by 30 December, 2020 would be blocked, and that telecom service providers that failed to block phone numbers without NIN would have their operating licences withdrawn.
However, the move had been condemned by various human rights groups, lawyers and other concerned Nigerians.
