FG Extends NIN-SIM Linkage

The NIN-SIM integration which began in December 2020 and was supposed to end then is still ongoing in 2021. The Federal Government began this project to ensure that the identity of Nigerians was registered digitally and that cybercrimes or digital crimes could easily be traced.

The process takes a lot of time and many Nigerians are yet to register to get their NIN. This has made the federal government keep on postponing the deadline date for the exercise.

In a statement released by the Ministerial Taskforce on NIN-SIM integration, the new date is now May 6 and not April 6. The team confirmed that over 51million Nigerians have their NIN at the moment. It noted that more than 2 million people register monthly and there are over 3800 NIN registration centers across the country.
