Telecommunication companies in Nigeria have submitted about 43 million National Identity Numbers to the National Identity Management Commission for verification in order to have them registered with their respective Subscriber Identification Modules (SIMs).

Also, as the deadline for telephone subscribers with NINs to register their SIMs with the identity numbers elapsed today (January 19, 2021), operators have said that SIMs with unlinked submitted NINs would not be blocked.

It was also gathered that so far the NIMC had been able to provide about 45 million NINs, as it was able to register about two million people in the last one month after the Federal Government ordered citizens to register their SIMs with valid NINs.

Sources at the commission confirmed this, stating that the crowds that greeted the agency after the government’s directive had been overwhelming.
