The Great Way To Link Your NIN To All Network, MTN, Glo, Airtel, 9mobile

The Federal Government through the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) has mandated that all SIM cards must be linked to a National Identification Number (NIN).

Failure to do this by the end of  December 31, 2020 will result in the phone number being blocked. But, majority of the public has outcry to the government against this sudden announcement and the short time frame of implementation of this policy.

But, the director-general of the National Identity Management Commission said there is no extension for the announced deadline of block of SIM card. Again, the Nigerian Identity Management Commission (NIMC has directed that all who registered with NIMC can link their NIN to more than one sim card or phone number. The commission said telecom subscribers should take their NIN to the office of their service provider for any assistance.
