The Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Dr. Isa Ali Pantami, has expressed satisfaction with significant progress in the ongoing NIN-SIM linkage exercise.

The Minister expressed the Federal Government’s appreciation for the commitment demonstrated by all stakeholders and citizens.

He further urged everyone to submit their NINs before the 9th February 2021 deadline.

Pantami spoke at the end of a review meeting on 18th January 2021, where the Technical Implementation Committee under the Ministerial Task Force reported significant progress in the ongoing linkage exercise.

According to the report, so far, a total of 47.8 million NINs have been collected by the mobile operators.

At an average of three to four SIMs per subscriber, this means many millions will be linked up before the deadline in February 2021.

The Minister urged the technical team to fast-track the processes so that the project is delivered soonest.

The Technical Committee drew attention to the App developed by the Federal Government which allows subscribers to link up to a maximum of seven (7) SIMs to their NIN.

The Minister reminded Nigerians to secure and protect their NINs, urging subscribers to desist from selling their NINs or allowing others to use their NINs for registration.
