The Federal Government has given new update on linking National Identity Number, NIN with SIM cards plan.
According to reports in Vanguard, Dr Isa Ali Pantami who is the Minister of Communications and Digital Economy updated the Citizens that the FG has concluded for full implementation of linking NIN with SIM.
Pantami confirmed this on his official Twitter account while reacting to a false allegation of having links with terrorist groups.
“On the issue of NIN-SIM Verification to fight insecurity, there is no going back. Our priority as GOVERNMENT based on the provision of our constitution 1999 (as amended) Section 14(2)b is SECURITY, not just economy," he said.
“For sure, no going back at all. Let the sponsors continue.”
"FYI all, by the Almighty, no amount of intimation will stop @IsaPantami from implementing d good policies of President Muhammadu Buhari, GCFR on security. If you are yet to verify your SIM using NIN, do it very soon, before our next action. Criminals are feeling the heat.”
With this new update from the Federal government it is important that people who are yet to get their NIN or those that have it already but are yet to link them with their SIM should do so as soon as possible because the Government is not ready to back down from the policy.
