All those who have not registered are encourage to opt their game in meeting with the new deadline, the Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Dr Isa Ali Ibrahim Pantami disclosed this Today, Friday April 2.

The statement jointly signed by Dr Ikechukwu Adinde of NCC and Kayode Adegoke of NIMC read;


“The meeting took place on Thursday, April 1, 2021, and approval was given to extend the period of the NIN-SIM linkage to the 6th of May, 2021. The request for the extension was presented to President Muhammadu Buhari and he endorsed it”

“With each individual having an average of 3 to 4 SIMs, the total number of SIMs tied to NINs would close to the total number of registered SIMs in the country”

“The Chairman of the EFCC addressed the meeting and stated that the NIN-SIM linkage would support the Federal Government in checkmating the activities of fraudsters and cybercriminals. The Honourable Minister noted the importance of obtaining feedback from all stakeholders in order to ensure that the NIN-SIM linkage process is one that cannot easily be compromised.”

The government is poised to have every SIM linked with the National Identification Number before the 9th of February, 2021


Failure to do so, will see Sims blocked, NINC warned
